Ships of the desert - Linda and Bills 40th wedding anniversary celebration

28 November 2017
How do you surprise your husband of 40 years? Arrive at the party on a camel surrounded by bellydancers musicians and my girls. The quiet seaside town of Iluka didn't know what hit it! 60 friends and family members helped us celebrate our special day. Music played by our family and friends went on into the evening and much champagne flowed.

Not only did this day mark 40 years of marriage and adventures, it also was the 10th anniversary of our departure from Townsville Australia to sail around the world on Valiam.
