The Big Event

This is the one straight stretch of the nauseatingly windy (that's long-i windy) road that leads 
to the lovely little town of Mendocino, where yesterday
my Beloved Aunties became genuine, official Married People with fancy rings
and a fancy cake and everything. And afterwards, right across the road . . .
several actual whales (this wasn't really one of them, though) came 
to disport themselves throughout the reception! 
While the newly-married pair were the main attraction,
they didn't mind sharing the stage with their uninvited--
but most welcome--cetacean guests!

  5. I am sure the whales didn't need to crash the wedding - they could have gotten invitations if they had asked!

    What an awesome day!

  19. We can't say we know any other couple who had live whales at their wedding. We guess you could get that at sea world, but this had to be much better. Congratulations with special hugs for your Aunties. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo.

  34. What a fabulous day! And what auspicious visitors! Whales symbolizes family, romance, longevity, harmony, travel, community and protection. He is said to protect those who travel away from home, and lead them back when the time comes. They mate for life and raise each child with care. They also travel in large groups of families, working together to protect all members of their pod.
