A morning drive
top down and airy
we both love sunshine.
Off we go
across Golden Ears Bridge passed eagles
to lakes unseen til now
walking beaches with sandled feet
along paths where bear warnings turn us back.
We pause at Stave Lake power house
watching water convert to power
for homes we pass as we drive back
at last to dine atop
the Boathouse on the ocean shore
until the sun has set and sleep comes later
closing the day that marked
our 46th anniversary.
BACKGROUND: Christine and I celebrated our 46th Wedding Anniversary by driving the MX4 Miata top down in the sun across Golden Ears Bridge to Dewdney Trunk Rd where we visited Whonnock Lake and the Stave Falls Dam and Power Plant and came home via Mission Bridge thru Fort Langley, and then to an evening roof top dinner at the Boathouse Restaurant in White Rock.
