Early on Wednesday morning good friends Don and Lynore Harrington and I set off from Comox to Halifax NS. The purpose of the flying visit was to attend the wedding of Emily Minton and Scott Mc. Queen. Emily is the daughter of other good friends Jan and Brad Minton. Emily and Scott live and work in Halifax.
En route through Calgary we met Andy and Shelley, also heading east to the wedding.
We caught up on a whole lot of "stuff" while waIting to fly out of Calgary.
Once in Halifax and at the hotel the family/ friends group snowballed quickly.
With one day between landing and wedding, a caravan of us visited Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. It was a super occasion. We men bundled into one vehicle and gabbed football, hockey, trucks etc. , while the women used another vehicle and talked quilts, wedding and grandkids.
The wedding went very well. Em looked gorgeous and her beau was handsome. They both handled the occasion so well. There was much love in the room, the dinner was great and there was some hot boogying after. I even managed to shake a leg too. Thanks Rebecca!!
We're so glad we went. Now, writing this at Calgary while waiting for the final connection home, it's great to reflect on how love really does make the world go round. (Some more pics below)
'Bye for now and God bless.

Andy and Shelley looking great.
Don about to board a corvette named Sackville. Lynore's father had served on corvettes in WW II so the tour of this ship was of special interest to her.
