This is Not Goodbye, Adios or Sayonara, Just Au Revoir and See Y’all On the Other Side

The advantage of being a child bride is that a twenty-fifth wedding anniversary whirls around before a blink, a wink or indeed a wrinkle. I am lying about one of those things.

So here I am on the cusp of a milestone and am off with Mr Carmichael, my man, husband, my rock (one of those may be a slight exaggeration) to the U S of A for a whistle stop revisit of some of our favourite places. Places worthy of our presence for this silver coated anniversary.

We are crossing the pond and heading straight here:

Well you kinda’ have to, don’t you?

Then we’re braving a tiny prop plane to here:

modernist heaven (MFL PS our photo at home)

That was taken on my last visit.

And in the hope that I will be so chilled at this juncture I am allowing Mr C to drive me here:

those were the days (Sunset strip, '79)
those were the days (Sunset strip, ’79)

before we board Branson’s virgin back to Blighty.

Once I’ve found a big enough suitcase I really can start looking forward to all this excess.

    1. I’m banned from American cocktails especially in the bar the first photo was taken from (while I could still stand up straight)
      I sorta’ agree it’s for my own good – but not on the actual anni.

  1. Have a fantastic time! I’ll be in sunny California next week too but not relaxing beside a pool…we will be at Disneyland with lots of kids and family but I I’ve finally figured out where they serve drinks. πŸ™‚ Congrats on 25 years!

    1. Wilco and yep, it’s going pretty well so far – just worked out how to trick the Wynn’s wifi into believing we’ve paid the outrageous daily charge – go the Carmichaels.

now it's your turn
