Wedding Day



We managed to fit in a workout in the morning before the wedding. Ralph joined us for, four rounds for time:

Run 400m, 50 squats
I subbed push ups, dips and pull ups so as to save my patella tendon. That said, it is getting much better.
Matt: 13:33
Donna: 12:43
Ralph: we are not sure of his time, but he seemed to enjoy himself.
THE MAIN EVENT

Then it was time for the big event that we travelled all this way for. My sisters wedding.

We made it on time (just) despite the best efforts of the taxi driver to take us somewhere different. The speeches were unique, to say the least, my Dad has an interesting turn of phrase.


Dad, Briony, Brian (the preacher) and Geoff
Briony (my sister) looked lovely in white (yes white) and the pink and orange gerberas went with the whole Dr Seuss themed wedding cake.

Food was great! Very paleo except the cake which was a dense moist chocolate creation.

Music was very Priscilla Queen of the Desert, think ABBA and 70's and 80's disco straight out of the juke box.

Pre wedding beers and the other happy couple.
We spent some time out on the deck over looking the ocean before heading home full of food and drink.
Now we are free to enjoy the rest of our trip. We will slowly head north, riding as much as we can and enjoying the scenery.

secondly, gerber daises are, hands down, the best flower ever.

Thanks ec. I guess its a good thing to wear a heel other than weight lifting shoes....once in awhile.

lets say the time was similar but the count of squats and other things were a bit short. I'll do better next time.
Enjoyed getting out for some air (and rain)
Thanks
Ralph

Sitting here in the middle of a nor'easter I have to say some warm NZ sunshine would be nice. Ruth
