September seems to be the month for it.
Wedding anniversaries, Relationship anniversaries, work anniversaries and special occasions.
I suppose I shouldn’t be all that surprised.
September is Spring in this part of the world and for those that dislike winter and cool mornings, it is cause for celebration when the earth turns towards the sun again.
Brides choose September for their weddings.
Do they do that in the North as well?
Weekly Friendly Friday Theme
Friendly Friday challenges you to look back on your own Anniversaries. Where were you last year, six years ago, ten years ago or more?
My photo archive indicates I am frequently found close to the water on my Anniversary.
The wild surf at Greenmount headland, at Coolangatta draws us in.
A surfer was taken by a shark right at this point, just two days ago.
A father in his 40’s who surfed here every day. He was rescued, taken ashore but paramedics could not save him. The shark, believed to be a Great White, left its tooth embedded in the bite mark on his surfboard.
On our anniversary visits, I rarely went in for a swim, preferring to walk in the shallows and then past the old Shark Tower monument, which was erected in the 1960s for lifesavers to use as an observation site.
From that point, I would follow the boardwalk through the pandanus trees around the headland.
Even though we have nets to protect swimmers, the killer shark appears to have swum underneath the six-metre nets that line the shore.
The irony of the local name: ‘Snapper Rocks” Hotel and Surf Club, does not escape me.
