Together

I've seen this couple at the marina before. The husband does a little fishing. The wife has a basket of drinks and snacks. Sometimes they walk a bit. Sometimes the wife checks to see what's on her husband's line.

Mostly they just sit there. They chat quietly. They smile a lot. They hold hands. The wife reaches up to adjust her husband's hat. He reaches over to turn her umbrella.

They are together.

It's wonderful to see people like that, isn't it? Too bad there aren't more of them these days. Great capture and a very sweet story! Thanks!

I love seeing "older" couples together. It is very touching!

You've captured a great love story!
Sounds like true love. I've seen some couples like this. I hope after 35 years that Hubs and I will be that way too when we're older.

It's wonderful when a couple can grow old gracefully together. :)
