I was supposed to, but at the last minute, the bride called off the wedding, informing 50-plus guests via e-mail that they “decided to remain friends.”
Ooph. How do you respond to that and as a bride, is it kosher to keep the gifts?
When she shared the news, I hadn’t made reservations yet – for a flight or hotel – but I probably would have booked a place like this San Juan vacation home. Situated on Lummi Island, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom retreat is convenient by ferry, which departs on the hour from 6 a.m. to midnight every day. And the ride is only 10 minutes. Not bad.
You know me – gotta mention the outdoor kitchen. If you can be outside, why wouldn’t you? There’s a week’s worth of whale watching, sailing, biking and canoeing to do.
I’m not a huge hot tub gal (I barely use our jet tub at home), but if that’s your thing, there’s one inside, along with a full kitchen, one queen, king and sofa bed, plus ooh … a fireplace.
I’ll leave this post with two happy endings:
My friend found love and got married last year to a fellow Washingtonian.
A Washington vacation without storms? No need to raincheck that trip.
