This is the old building they are restoring to be the chapel. They are putting in a new stage in the next couple weeks, will get rid of the old lighting and put up twinkling lights around the ceiling. The awesome part is that all the walls, except where the stage is, open to the outdoors, as does the ceiling, and can close up if the weather is bad. White chairs for the guests are part of the deal. I put in a picture of the river just for fun.

Ruth - how exciting!!! the venue sounds lovely! The wedding date seems so far off, but the time will go so fast. Look forward to hearing details of the wedding.
101F today! Yesterday, 100F broke a record. Thankfully tomorrow will only be in the 80s.
Walked early this morning and around 8 tonight - spent the rest of the day in the house - packing. Tonight spent just shy of 2 hours on hold with AC to be sure we can leave the airport between flights with a 17 hour overnight layover. Thankfully we go a YES! The reason we were worried is that the letter we got and the AC reservations both said can't leave!!! At our age, sure didn't want to sleep in the airport. Tomorrow my plan is to get a mani/pedi - my finger nails are awful. Will putter in the house before then. We leave Tuesday afternoon. My checked bag is just below the 50# limit - but the bottom half (duffle bag has 2 parts) is filled with stuff for DD#2. Have some things in carry-on for DD#1. Because so many stories of lost luggage, DH and I each put some stuff in each other's bag and have a few days change of clothes in carry-on.
Have a great Monday!

Oh Karen, how exciting that the trip is nearly at hand! Fingers crossed for uneventful travels. Once you get there, I know you will have a wonderful time.
I am going to Dance2fit this morning & Pound later today. My body & scale both tell me that I need to get back into a normal schedule. We are getting a break from the heat, but it looks like it will be back by the weekend.

Karen: Have a FABULOUS trip! Happy that you received the Okay to leave the airport. Wouldn't want to stay in an airport for 17 hours!
Ruth: Did the tree damage your roof? Love the wedding venue! The open or closed walls are amazing. And you have a date! YES!
M0mmy: Congratulation on selling your house and getting to move back to your home state!
Walked/ran this morning. This afternoon I made 3 loaves of zucchini blueberry bread plus zucchini soup. Our blueberry bushes were loaded when we came home from the beach. Froze plenty of them. Probably have 2 to 3 more weeks for picking berries. Lots of giant zucchini were in the garden thus the bread and soup lol.

Tried to check in online and realized my first name was spelled wrong - Kaaren instead of Karen - first flight is on United and they made a note in their system. Air Canada are the rest of the flights and they said they couldn't do it on the phone unless I cancelled the ticket and bought a new one at today's price - thanks but no thanks. Sure hope I don't have problems. The gal at AC seemed to say that United would print my boarding passes with the correct name. I guess I'll find out tomorrow!!
Much more pleasant weather today - in the 80s but 90s again tomorrow.
Will walk early in the morning, then walk in the airport before our flight.
