Love was in the air on Wednesday as Inverell celebrated Valentine’s Day. We called out for loved-up couples to send us photos, but only Cathy Groen Stevens could be coaxed into sending us a picture.
“My hubby and I married on the 14-2-1976 so on Valentine’s Day it was our 42nd wedding anniversary,” she said. “We agree that you have to keep at it. Life is not a throw away and neither is marriage. When we picked our date for the wedding Valentines day was barely mention in Australia. It wasn't till many years later we realised the special day. We hope for many more years together and we are in it for better or worse.”
People were more willing to share their love spots around town with McIlveen Lookout being the fave. Wade Berryman did gave a warning: “Just watch out for the sharp bit on the sun dial (if it's still there).” And we’re sure there’s a story behind that one.
Rebecca Henningsen just wanted to find a nice paddock and watch the sunset while sitting at a “cute little table with candles and beer or wine and yummy chocolate, nice meal”.
For Bigmamma Joanne Darren Dodd, there is nothing more romantic than heading to “Copeton Dam watching the sun going down on the water. Absolutely beautiful,” she wrote on social media.
What did you do on Valentine’s Day?
