My Godfather Robert who took the pics on the night sadly passed away not too long ago
Here he is with me

Our wedding invitations using a traditional Latvian sign
I am now using my Latvian name and Ingrid is my middle name
And sadly my Dad passed away before I was married
Our first place we lived in in Wollstonecraft, Sydney
We built our first home in the Blue Mountains in Blackheath and stayed 10 years
Ten years later we went to further inland to a little place called Peel outside Bathurst
No street lights......no garbage service and no town water
But I loved it all......some of my best years would have to have been spent there
Above is a painting of the house by Lindsay
We then moved down to Bungendore outside of Canberra
and lasted 4 years before we made a Sea Change
That was the name of the house but since moving here Hubby has take down the sign as he thought it looked poxy!!!

Today we headed down to Bermagui and stopped at Blue Earth Cafe

And just to compare 1973
We bought ourselves a little setting for our top balcony.......the turquoise one
