We have just come back from a wonderful two weeks in Andalucia, where our daughter, Ruth, lives in a town called Jimena de la Frontera. This is about 20 miles north of Gibraltar, where she works. The highlight of our trip was, of course, her wedding to John - a terrific, very laid-back Australian guy she met during her travels in Africa. She had a legal, civil wedding in Gibraltar followed the next day by a non-religious ceremony of promises and exchange of rings. This took place in the open air at a wonderful hotel high in the Andalucian mountains, with stunning views over the valley below. It was incredibly moving and there were many moist eyes during the ceremony. Many of John's family and friends had travelled from Australia and from the UK for the event and we met them for the first time but, hopefully, not the last. My proudest moment was walking our beautiful daughter down to the ceremony to the music from a brilliant flamenco guitarist. I have put some pictures of this wonderful event in my Photos section.
