Back in September, I joined Wendy and Garry for a day at the Saanich Fair. They’ve been married for nineteen years and wanted to document something they love to do together. They spend a lot of weekends checking out different events in town and experiencing new things. The fair is an old favourite of theirs, especially the horses.
When asked to say something interesting about their relationship, Garry wrote, “We don’t have all the same likes and dislikes, we don’t watch the same media, or have the same politics (we don’t vote the same but we believe in the same things. We just think there are different ways to get there), in part because of the difference of age but we are very different.” Wendy explained “But on the important things, the age difference has really never mattered. We are just very different people in many, many ways. But at the end of the day, we are on the same side; looking out for each other.”
It was a lot of fun spending some time with these two, seeing how they enjoy each others’ company.
