#3...............a good beach day and ............finally.........the wedding!

Saturday dawned with more choppy water making for miserable fishing; weak tummies and no fish caught.

Still, Ern and his children (Nick is nearly 19, Monica 16) had a great day with Jorge at the wheel.

J&B joined us at the ChiChiCarlies beach for the day; being lazy going in and out of the water. Lunch was rotisserie chicken from the SuperExpress: $50p and really good.

The winds brought out lots of boats under full sail.

Back to the rooms for showers and a 5pm wedding. The big palapa at Sergios was decorated with pale blue Chinese lanterns which Liz outfitted with battery-operated tea lights. Never knew there were battery-operated tea lights! Big silver paper stars hung alongside. There were at least 10 tea lights on each table which flickered on the settings of linens and flatware. The ceremony, performed by Sabina, was the main event at Playa Sol and rightfully so. The bride was stunning in a strapless and beaded bodice with a heavy underskirt, topped by a chiffon overlay.


Here she comes with her mother and stepfather:



They're both pretty!


It's all over! Let's eat!


Captain Tony was the official photographer and took hundreds of pictures. Had to be tough for him manuevering around the rest of us trying to get pictures. I finally quit figuring there would be plenty of people sharing.

My camera has been acting up so I didn't get good pictures of the buffet but there was: Tic n Chix, spaghetti, chicken fajitas and shishkabob, weeners & beans, rolls and fresh fruit.

Sunset was perfect and I'm determined to hold onto the day:

I'm taking the sun home to Ohio

They dance as married folk.


After dinner, an ecclectric mix of music played for the dancers. By 9pm, everyone was worn out. Especially the bride's mother who had worn herself out planning this event. She hit the mark as everything was perfect.

Back to our room to have a cold one, reflect on the day, and watch the moonshine on the water; finally calm. The stars are putting on their own show, competing with a waxing moon.
