An Anniversary—is a day that commemorates or celebrates a past event that occurred on the same day of the year as the initial event. For example, the first event is the initial occurrence or, if planned, the inaugural of the event. One year later would be the first anniversary of that event. The word was first used for Catholic feasts to commemorate saints. – Wikipedia

Today is our 42nd wedding anniversary. The weather was forecast was to be in the 80’s.

So it was beach time!!!

We went to a new beach south of St. Joe. There was no entrance fee since it was after Labor Day. That also meant there were no restrooms or changing rooms open….but free is free. We swam and laid out in the sun for a couple of hours and then went back home to clean up to go out to dinner.

We wanted to go to the same restaurant our oldest son and daughter-in-law went to for their anniversary dinner during our “beach week” in July – so we drove almost an hour north…and it was great.

After all that work Mary renewed my contract for another year!!!
