Two bees, Romeo and Juliet, live in different hives but have met and fallen in love.  On a windless spring morning, they simultaneously leave their respective hives to visit each other.  Their routes met at a point 50 meters from the closest hive, but they fail to see each other and continue on to their destinations.  At their destinations, they spend the same amount of time to discover that the other is not home and begin their return trips. On their return trips, they meet at a point that is 20 meters from the closest hive.  This time they see each other and have a picnic lunch before returning home.  How far apart are the two hives?
