It’s our fifth wedding anniversary and Samara’s mum sends us a framed print of this photograph.
It was taken in Saint-Hippolyte, Quebec, in 2010. I was out of my element and nervous about being on a boat but I look strangely at ease in the photograph. I suggest we display the picture prominently at home so that guests can glimpse my heroic outdoorsmanship.
“Let’s not do that,” says Samara. “People will only ask us to go camping.”
We celebrate our five years of marriage by drinking from a coconut.
