lordaerith and I finally got to our hotel on Cape Cod at 1:30am Saturday morning. We passed out until mid-morning. Once we got up we went in search of breakfast and found it at Bagels & Beyond. This place makes their bagels fresh every morning and has really good coffee and breakfast sandwiches. So good, in fact, that we got breakfast there all three mornings that we were on the Cape.
After breakfast we drove around West Yarmouth and met up briefly with rogueactor, who was grabbing a bite to eat in the middle of helping Wyldblade and TheatreChick with their wedding preparations. Then we had the hunt for a wedding card for those two, which ended successfully at the mall in South Yarmouth.
Eventually it was time to get ready for the wedding. They were going to have it on the beach, but since it was drizzling on and off all day, they eventually decided to have the ceremony in doors at the reception hall. The wedding started a little bit late because some people still ended up going to the beach. It was a lovely ceremony. The dress was casual (I think the groom was the most casually dressed person there). wabres officiated (got to love a state where anyone can be a JP for a day). The bride's vows were lovely and touching. She was almost crying. Most of the bridesmaids were crying. I think the groom was almost crying too.
After the reception was lots of fun. There was a punch room with 11 different types of punch, all with fun names, a games room, and lots of yummy food made by the families of the bride and groom. I ended up playing Apples to Apples with some of the bridesmaids and a bunch of other guests for a good part of the night. It was a perfect representation of Wyldblade and TheatreChich and a really really good party!
Pictures from wabres (because I forgot to bring my camera):lordaerith and I drove up to Provincetown to check it out. We ended up at The Wired Puppy for a few hours so I could get some work done (yes, I had work to get done on my vacation...long story...). Finally the rain cleared up at we got to walk around, see the sites, and check out the shops. I think that safirerings summed it up better than I could have done.
We drove back from P-town the long way and then went to The Yarmouth House for dinner. It was a really good dinner. lordaerith had the Surf&Turf and the Tuxedo cake for dessert and I had crab stuffed salmon and this apple caramel cake thing for dessert. After dinner we wanted to go play mini-golf at Pirate's Cove, but they closed just before we got there.
Yesterday we left the Cape and drove to Connecticut to pick up artemis42. It was really really amazing to see her again. I finally got to see her comic book shop, where the walls are truely made of awesome.
The three of us drove up to Northampton, checked into our hotel, and then drove over to Amherst for D.P. Dough. After eating we headed over to msbutterpecan's to see her and the kiddos. OMG! They've all grown so much, it's really amazing. Foof jumped about 3 feet off of the ground when she saw me. :) After hanging out with them for a while, we headed back to Northampton for ice cream at Herrells with kjpepper, sundart, and lostcircuit. It was awesome to see Ms KJ and Sunny again and to meet LC. After ice cream, lordaerith, artemis42, kjpepper, and I walked up towards Smith. When we were in front of East Heaven Hot Tubs, Aerith said that we better go in because we had an appointment for a roof tub in 10 minutes. Surprise Hot Tubbing!! He's amazingly sweet. So we said good-bye to Ms KJ and the three of us had a really wonderful and amazing time in a hot tub under the moon and stars.
Not really sure what today's plans are, but I know they'll involve seeing kiten and possibly reverendtom and going to Haven tonight. Yay!
