Part of vacationing in Vancouver was to attend my cousin’s wedding. It was a beautiful, simple backyard wedding with close family and friends. The weather held up, and the day went smoothly. Like with my other cousin’s wedding last year, the groom first heads to the bride’s home to perform the tea ceremony for the bride’s side of the family. Afterwards, the bride will leave her home with the groom and head to his home, where they will perform the tea ceremony for the groom’s family. Following, my cousin decided to go with a small western backyard style ceremony. The night wrapped up with a reception at the University of British Columbia’s University Golf Club.
Day 3 took us to an easy day out on the town. I started the morning by heading down to the Fisherman’s Wharf at Steveston. A lovely walk by the water, there are many different shops and vendors alongside at least 5 different coffee shops, the perfect way to start the day.
The afternoon took me to a blueberry field where I was picking blueberries, eating them as I went. I ate almost as many blueberries as I picked in the field! It was quite the novel experience for me as there aren’t really any bluberry farms in Edmonton. It was a quiet pass-time but enjoyable. Very peaceful to just get lost between the rows of blueberry trees. Definitely something I will do again.
If you can’t tell, it’s been an exhausting 3 days, time to sign off and to prep….tomorrow we head to the beautiful city of Seattle!
