After gorging ourselves, we adjourned to Derna Crescent to cut the fabtastic cake that Jac made.

Nara was very keen to help cut the cake:
We had a great day and got just a little bit emotional! Then to top it off, John and Sue were in Melbourne and we had a great lunch together the next day at Montalto Winery on the Peninsula. If our 50th wedding anniversary is as good, we'll be very happy!
