The Happy CoupleEarlier this week I celebrated my third wedding anniversary with my wonderful wife, Shirley. And what an amazing life we now have together.

To celebrate we went to Rome for a few days, somewhere I have never been before. So you can expect a few photos in the not too distant future. In fact I’m not sure why Rome wasn’t on my bucket list?

Luckily we both have a passion for travelling and have already visited many great places together. We will have to start thinking about where to go for our next anniversary…

I thought I would take this opportunity to share some of the beautiful photos from that wonderful day three years ago. It was the perfect day and I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

It has been very hard trying to pick the limited number of photos to show but hopefully this will give you a good overview of the whole day.

Chimpanzee WalkingHere are some photos from a recent trip to Monkey World.

This is a refuge for rescued apes from around the world. This includes animals that have suffered abuse or neglect and provides rehabilitation back into some sort of natural living groups.

We took a trip there to celebrate June’s birthday, my Mother-in-Law. June even had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy, the star from the program Monkey Life.

It gave me the perfect opportunity to get my camera out as practice for Lianne’s upcoming wedding at the end of this month. Bit of luck really as I was definitely a bit rusty…

Taking photos through fences or glass can add to the challenge and as some of the shots were inside with low light that gave me a few more things to think about.

Boats In A RowFor last years wedding anniversary, Shirley and I went to Polperro, in Cornwall, for the weekend.

It was a picturesque little place and the weather was pretty much ideal so I couldn’t help but take some time out to take a few photos. What better way to showcase some of those photos than here on my blog.

In case you are interested we stayed in a lovely little Bed and Breakfast called Chyavallon. It was a nice easy stroll down into the village and the harbour, and it wasn’t too far back up the hill afterwards. The rooms was comfortable, the owners were really friendly and the breakfast was great.

I am still not really sure what to do with my photos in the long run? If I do plan on trying to create some money from them down the line I need to protect their integrity. That is why I am only including fairly small, web-based images for now. I will have to put some proper thought into this in a future post.

Feel free to leave a comment, it is nice to know there is someone reading…

St Ives HarbourThis post is a bit late because I have been on holiday in Cornwall for a week.

Every year Shirley and I try to go away with the family. We rent out a house and take everyone along, including all 4 of the grand-children.

This year we found a house in St Ives for us all to stay in. It was only a short walk from the town centre.

Even though it isn’t that far away I can honestly say I have never been that far into Cornwall. I was stunned at how beautiful it was. And the weather was pretty amazing, especially as it was April.

I think everyone had a wonderful time and Shirley is already looking for somewhere to go next year…

Anyway I thought I would post a quick selection of holiday snaps. Enjoy…
