On our way to Oshawa hubby showed me a tree with a carved face on it in someones yard.
My sister-in-law looked absolutely radiant and beautiful.
Here`s the little boat we went on for the wedding.
A view from the boat at dinner. Not the prettiest view at that moment!
But before dinner....mmmmmmmmmm.....frozen Margaritas onboard for me! The boat ride wasn`t as scary as I`d feared. The water wasn`t that deep, being a man made lake, but the air was havoc on the hair!
The rain didn`t happen and it was a lovely wedding and a fun time.
On our way home Sunday, hubby took me to see the famous R.S. McLaughlin Estate in Oshawa, where he is from originally.
McLaughlin was the founder of General Motors in Canada. Quite a few movies have been filmed here. Chicago, X-Men and Billy Madison to name a few. The tv show Relic Hunter also.
We had a tour of the inside which was interesting.
This is a tall sundial in the yard. I liked what it had engraved on it on one side. "Let The Slight Shadow Teach Thee Wisdom"
This would have been much more striking view without that turquiose blue lining in the water I personally think... preferring a more natural look, myself.
I didn`t take any flower pictures because most of the perrenials were over and there were just the typical annuals left.
The white tent was for a wedding about to occur.
We had lunch in the family`s origianl "Tea House" somewhere in that area away from the mansion, while listening to a musician softley play the aucustic guitar. The food was delicious. We had forgotten the camera unfortuantely at first but retreived it afterwards for the other pictures.
The statuary was beautiful.........
A perfectly formed bum with more than one crack.
