Bucket of Truth

Early this evening we made a trip over to Bar Harbor to celebrate a milestone.



We sat at an outside table right next to the entrance to the bar.



Tonight we made a toast to each other



in celebration of 27 wonderful years together!



Henri started off with a beet salad.




And then a lamb burger (with fries.)





My McKay's house salad.





And 2 yummy, crispy crab cakes.







One of the scenes from our table in the garden.





After dinner we took a stroll around Bar Harbor, and ended up at an ice cream place, standing in line behind a couple that we found out were also celebrating their anniversary. They both ordered the same flavor which was called "Bucket of Truth" and then with a wink told us it was their anniversary. When we told them we were celebrating ours too, and then decided to follow suit and order the same flavor, we all had a little laugh together. In case you're wondering, bucket of truth ice cream is chocolate and caramel swirl with pecans. It was sooooo good.



And so very appropriate


For another sweet toast together at the end of our day!

Wow ...so many years with the same person, no? amazing...we live - learn - and grow...stretched, changed - better!...yet still in some ways both still our same "person" - just adapted into something we never each would have been if we had not had the other person with us. We grooooooow on each other. Your anniversary celebration looks divine...the food scrumptious. (wow) and I raise my glass to you. 27 years is becoming a rarity in this generation and era.Kudos! You guys look like you KNOW how to celebrate life and make the little moments the BIG ones...rah! I am happy for you today. Thanks for sharing the moment.

Hello Henri & Lili,
Congrats on your milestone; definitely worth celebrating.
I find your website and the embedded awsome pictures a true piece of art.
I wonder if you would reach me at E-mail: fensies@aol.com. I have a favor to ask on behalf of a niece of Henri's mother who lives in Belgium.
Kind regards,
