Dad’s 70th Birthday Lunch

On Sunday we celebrated my Dad’s 70th Birthday with lunch at the Anchorage Restuarant in the Boat Harbour Hotel.

It’s been a long time family favourite and many, many special occasions have been celebrated here.

Not only is the food always fabulous, but so is the view – esp. on a lovely sunny day.

There were¬† speeches. Unfortunately I wasn’t feeling that great, so Athena said some words on behalf of our family. This is Dad’s brother, my uncle Brian.
