First, contrary to last week’s post, I realized that I do have a few photos from our first few days on-Island!
So, here’s some of our stuff on the ferry ride:
Here we are loading things into the truck (John is looking mighty intense):
Here my Dad and I are working on signs (Dad modeling his working shoes, grandma doing the heavy looking-on):
Feel more in the loop now? :)
On Sunday morning, Kim, Kate, and Cormac arrived. Yay! The gang was finally all together! The next few days were mostly just spent enjoying each others’ company — playing tennis, taking walks, eating on the deck, jumping off the dock, picking berries, playing cards, going out in the boats. Pretty much perfect. We did, however, tackle a few wedding-related tasks in between leisure activities.
On Sunday, we decided on the perfect spot for the ceremony:
On Tuesday, we took the boat into town for Kate’s hair trial:
Cormac’s family also arrived on Tuesday, so we all had dinner together at our cottage:
On Wednesday, we assembled welcome bags for guests:
We included a map hand-drawn by my best friend, granola bars, water bottles, pretzels, salt water taffy, driving directions, and an itinerary for the weekend. Kim was our official bow-snipper.
Wednesday night we headed to Five Islands for lobster:
And returned in the early evening.
That’s all for today! Up next: we raise the tent, and hang lots of bunting!
