Rendering Magic

We celebrated our third anniversary so marvelously, rendering a Wednesday evening perfectly magical. I especially liked getting to say at work that I was leaving a few minutes early that evening because I had a boat to catch. A ferry to the Island, which– both for its very self and as an easy retreat from the city– is one of my favourite parts of Toronto.

We had dinner at The Rectory Cafe on Wards Island. The weather was terrible so we didn’t sit outside, but from our table by the window we watched the water and the sailboats. Indulging in some splendid food which we partook in slowly, intending to linger until the ferry at 8:45. The meals were delicious, the wine perhaps the best we’ve ever had, and then dessert of course. I had a pot of tea called Benghal tiger. The restaurant was lovely and airy, the service fine, and being indoors didn’t spoil the mood. Really nothing could have been more delightful. And then to sail off into the sunset towards home– a happy anniversary indeed.

    Congratulations Kerry. Paul told me your blog address so I thought I would visit virtually before we come to see you later this month. What is your secret for a happy marriage so far?

    Ah! What a perfect way to celebrate your anniversary. So glad it was a happy one! We’ve just celebrated our 3rd, too.

    Happy anniversary to one very special couple. How could I have known, so many years ago when we packed you off to England, that you would return with such an amazing souvenir. Tons of love and best wishes xom

    Hannah– I am so excited to meet you, and pleased that you stopped by here. And though I am not so experienced at marriage yet, I’d say so far my tips would include 1) Merry someone you LIKE a lot and 2) Separate closets. See you soon!

    And thanks for wishes everybody. I’ve heard the third year is the best.
