Back in town

I feel pretty well rested right now, after having some of the busiest, and most wonderful, weeks of my life.

I went salt water fly fishing in Tofino, Canada, and actually really liked it. But what's not to like? Catching some fish (and allowing them to live), seeing a seal or two, spotting a bald eagle, drifting--all of it is good! We also went to the hotsprings, and although there was no room between the Chinese and German and Americans to soak, we did have a lovely walk through the rainforest, and we saw a lot of gray whales, and eight pelicans. We took a nap on the dock, until a float plane woke us up by almost landing on us! We also ate a lot of smoked salmon (today is my first day with absolutely no smoked salmon).

Getting married was probably the best day of my life so far. I remember it all! I wish I had had more time to talk with everyone, and to dance more. Thing is, there was a lot of love in that big room, and I think I understand why people have weddings. Marian did the most amazing job of marrying us. People laughed, people cried, people did the Hokey Pokey! Claire and I sang that cheesey song from Dirty Dancing! Chris sang "Something in the Way She Moves" but didn't know the words, so everyone else sang along with him. I sang "White Wedding" of course.

I was overwhelmed, I was stressed out, I was angry, but it was worth it. Totally.
