A Wedding on Salt Spring

This past weekend my niece Caroni (named after the river in Venezuela where the family spent their Sundays) became the first of the Young grandchildren to get married.  The ceremony was held on a beautiful sunny afternoon, oceanside on Salt Spring Island where she grew up.

Due to the volume of family members we stayed at a peaceful little B&B called Frida's Villa about half way between the ferry and the Young home.  If you're planning a vacation on Salt Spring I highly recommend it.

It turned out to be a fantastic weekend and the first time we've been together in nearly ten years.  I was so grateful for the opportunity to see what wonderful adults our kids have become; creative, talented, smart, funny, helpful, kind and generous.  Their partners are quite excellent as well.

Here are some photos of the weekend...we'll start with the big event:



Not to worry, security has everything under control.

Grandpa proves he's still got the moves at 96 1/2 (Half years really count before 10 and after 90).

Beddis Beach was a short walk from Frida's and we spent some time beach combing one morning.







 For those who complain the youth of today are always on their phones.
