WaterSound: Where all paths lead to the sea (PHOTOS)

Tony is retired from the FBI, where he worked for 25 years, a job that required a lot of moves and not a lot of time off.

The Riggios recall meeting on a beach on Long Island when Montreal-born French-speaking Micheline was 17 and spoke only a little English. Tony was from the Bronx and of Italian descent.

"He told me I was mysterious," says Micheline now, with an eye roll.

So, Tony asked her out and on their first date, the boy from the Bronx took the mysterious Micheline to Callahan Beach with a six-pack of beer, recalls Micheline now, with a shake of her head.

The two dated on and off for five years.

Tony went on to go into the army, finished college, went to law school, taught, and practiced law before being hired by the FBI.

"I hated the practice of law," he said. "Too many divorces."
