What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?

Our 25th Anniversary ( Part 2)
Chris and I spent our anniversary at Lantana Lodge. This was just 2 days before Kevin & Nikki's wedding and was a nice little "get away".
We had actually gone there on our 20th anniversary as well but the lodge was just opening at that time and they were not prepared for us arriving during the week for dinner. The menu consisted of about 1 choice which was fish ( I don't like fish). So, after we told them it was our 20th anniversary they asked us exactly what we wanted. One of the employees actually went to the store and bought all the food. They returned and cooked us up a wonderful meal complete with flowers, champagne and dessert. All "on the house"!
We were so impressed with how well they took care of us 5 years ago that we decided to go back. This time, a tornado blew in and as we were eating dinner the restaurant flooded! (Notice the green sky outside the window). Again, they were very nice, moved everyone to different tables and lite candles on each table as the power kept going out. Romantic in a weird sort of way.
We spent the night at the lodge this time and had a wonderful morning drinking our coffee on the gazebo that overlooks the lake.
Followed by a great breakfast in the now"dry" restaurant and then back home to discover the storm tore one of our trees in half and broke the fence :(
The week came in with a storm and ended just beautifully!
