Celebrating 30 years of life & love together

The time had arrived for our spoil of the trip…celebrating 30 wonderful years of marriage and living life together.

We caught the ferry to Stone Town/Zanzibar City. Arrived at midday and decided to do a tour of Stone Town, the capital city before heading out to our hotel. Zanzibar is famous for being the birth place of Freddy Mercury and infamous for having being a central point for the cruel slave trade.

We were based in the North Western section of the island at a spot with beautiful beaches, turquoise sea and stunning sunsets. Spent the time relaxing and reading on the beach as well as snorkling around Mnemba Island , which is surrounded by a natural protected reef with stunning fish and coral.

On the boat ride out to snorkling around Mnemba Island, I started chatting to a lady who was sitting near us (actually the only other person I spoke to on the trip of the 25 people on the boat). It turns that she is an Italian Jewess, Antonella, living in Australia who also advocates for Israel. What are the chances …. two Israel advocates, one Jewish and one Christian, meeting on a small boat in the ocean, off Zanzibar. We had a good time together and both felt it was a God appointed connection.

    Thought it most appropriate to leave a comment on this post, since I was privileged to be part of your lives before you married, be part of your wedding and Anita and I continued to enjoyed your friendship with you both for all these years afterwards.
    It is also appropriate as we celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary just yesterday.
    The photo’s are great and we are now caught up on your adventure through your blogs. Congrats on your life together, on your achievements and example and on your current mission.
    God Bless!
