There were a few special gifts given in the spirit of celebration.
Wine with instructions on where to consume it.
Books on travel and buying those essential retirement items as one enters a new phase in life.
Friends, family, neighbours and colleagues came together to celebrate with Paul this milestone in his life.
Like I said earlier, lots of laughs and smiles throughout the evening.
Getting caught up on each other's news.
Owen and Oma having a special moment.
Owen having fun in the arms of his great uncle Andrew.
Too soon it was time for us to head home.
Thanks Paul and Olga; we had a wonderful time and we look forward to seeing you up here more often.
