A Quick Post from YYJ

It's taken me a long time to get to this, but there's something to be said for B&Bs. While on Salt Spring Island, we stayed at the Wisteria Guest House in Ganges. It's a lovely little place on the outskirts of town - perfect for larger families travelling together!

And their breakfasts were superior. Each was two courses served with freshly pressed juices. One of my favourites was a plum cobbler that had a hint of tea and mint in it. It was accompanied by a yogurt cream (whipped cream mixed with yogurt). Totally delicious. It was followed by scrambled eggs, roasted asparagus and cherry tomatoes, thick cut bacon and sweet potato fries.

Plus, I have to say Beverly and Len were just amazing hosts. The beds were comfortable, the location serene... and you've already heard me talk about the food! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay on Salt Spring.

The next day we had house made sausages basted in hot mustard (after enjoying a big bowl of alpine muesli) served with baked french toast with apricot compote. It was breakfast heaven.

I should mention that the wedding was lovely! We spent Friday decorating the hall and making the lemonade and iced tea.

And I only looked slightly ridiculous with my hair flying all over the place. The view from the site was incredible, as it looked out over the ocean. My cousin Jenn (on the left of me) almost got myself and I thrown off the cliff when the doves they released got a little too close for comfort... but other than that, the bride and groom looked incredible (alas, the pictures don't do them justice, so I won't include them here).

And now, we're off to Vancouver to await out plane to Honolulu!

You looked so lovely! I love that shade of green on you and you looked as fresh as a summer's day.

Oh, the food looked great, too.

Have a fantastic time honeymooning in Hawaii. :)
