This was a fairly cold, windy day when we travelled up to Harbour Grace. I really enjoyed that community. It was quite sleepy but when word got round that the capelin were rolling it seemed like the whole town came out with their buckets. I needed this explained to me as a landlubber. These little fish come in to the shore and essentially beach themselves. It makes for some easy supper! People head out with their buckets and just scoop them up. It also attracts whales and sea life so thats an added bonus. You could always tell where the "capelin were rolling" because there would me a million seagulls and suddenly 40 cars parked on the side of the road! You can see what I mean here.
This is the super abridged version of our wedding! There are about a million more photos but you get the gist from these ones! After many days of raining it opened right up and was a clear blue sky for our wedding. I wouldn't have been bothered by the rain, really but the sunshine made for some lovely light streaming in through the church high white ceilings. After the ceremony we popped outside for a few minutes of photos with the family and then a few of just the two of us over by the bay. Then the party started!
By the time we had finished up our couple of photos everyone had moved from the church to the hall, grabbed a few drinks, and found their seats. We swooped in just as everyone was taking there seats and David said a few thanks-you's (we had no other speeches) and we tucked into dinner. Music, dancing, and general tom-foolery went on into the nights. David and I walked home at 2am after the last of the guests left the hall. We wandered down the dark, lonely streets in our fancy clothes. Him caring the left over dinner's and me carrying the leftover cake!
It's about this time of year when I start thinking, "Can't we just skip ahead to summer already!?" Of course, I'm not even a hot weather/summer person but being a few months deep into snow and clouds and frozen temps really makes you long for the tiniest bit of warmth and sun. Being stuck in the house has got me finally getting around to actually sifting through this summer's photos. I know. So lazy over here.
The first photo is the view from my sister-in-law's house. That is her front yard!! You want to talk about envy... my front yard is a Walmart. Not going to lie, it is pretty handy on those days you randomly need socks, a coffee table, a circular saw, and a jug o' milk.
I would still take this front yard over mine any day!!
Anyways! When she arrived at the house I was already dressed and just getting the hair piece put in my hair by my ma. (It was also made by her!)
Then once we were all ready we walked across the field towards the church. I specifically told David to be at the church at 4:15 and he arrived after me. I did see him walking down another road farther away so at least I knew he was coming. Men...So slow.....
