Ruby Wedding Anniversary Underwater!

12 Feb 2011

Peter and Kathy have now been happily married for 40 years, and what better way to celebrate than with a dive!

Kathy’s bridal veil, pictured here on the left, is the original veil that she wore on the big day 40 years ago.  In addition to having being worn for the ceremony, the veil made it’s second appearance for their 35th anniversary, as part of an underwater ceremony, also while diving with us here in the Maldives.

For Kathy and Peter it is the 12th time that they have visited Kuredu,  and Peter has now notched up his 10th time diving with us (diving for free has been even more enjoyable !)

Kathy started diving here on Kuredu 8 years ago at the young age of 56 and first discovered the underwater world during a Discover Scuba Diving Course, unsure as to whether she would like it or not… The more often she went for a dive the more she fell in love. After getting hooked on diving, she signed up for an Open Water Course with instructor Lisa, allowing her to now be able to dive together with Peter!

After gaining some experience, she continued with the Advanced Open Water Course and is now rightly proud at having logged more than 200 dives – enjoying them more and more with each visit!

The picture is taken by their friend Terry, who, together with his wife Jan, are also one of our many time repeater guests. Terry, Peter and Kathy have been diving together ever since they first met here on Kuredu.

We would like to wish Kathy and Peter a wonderful time and many more unforgettable dives until the next step – the Sapphire Wedding Anniversary for another underwater celebration!
