Celebrating Andy and Helen's 30 years

We came up to the boat yesterday as we had been invited to Andy and Helen's 30th Wedding Anniversary celebration in Aldridge today. We joined more than 50 other guests, including at least four other boaters, for a splendid buffet lunch with a looped slide show of pictures from the happy couple's life over the last three decades showing on a screen above the cake.

And what a cake! An iced Wandering Bark

… towing The Jam Butty past a WildSide meadow.

We sat at a table with Adam and Adrian of Briar Rose, Sandra of Areandare and Bones of Bones. It was excellent to see them all, and Andy and Helen, of course. Unfortunately some people didn't make it through the traffic in the London area, including Sue of Indigo Dream.

Andy and Helen, thank you for granting us the privilege of being able to share in your celebrations.

The Aldridge Church Centre was a superb venue for the event; other guests included family (of course), members of the church and their book club friends.

And all less than 12 miles from our boat - very handy. We're back on board tonight and will visit Andrew in Sheffield on Monday.
