Here are a couple of photos from Camron and Caroline's wedding in Edmonton as well
as some fun photos from Nanaimo having Thanksgiving with Karl and Donni.

Camron's wedding


Full size
The beautiful church that Wayne Gretzky was married in - St Joseph's Basilica.

My sister Danielle and her boyfriend Dalen.

My parents along with Renee and Justin. Note that we waited a little longer than usual for the
wedding to start since one of the groomsmen was late to the church.

My camera doesn't take the best indoor photos from far away. Here are Camron and Caroline at the altar.

and taking their vows.

The whole wedding party at the church.

Here is Natalia walking with her favourite sparkly shoes that were more than a little uncomfortable.

I took a cake photo for posterity and since Natalia loves cakes.


Nanaimo with Donni and Karl


Full size
Donni and Karl invited us to spend Thanksgiving with them in their new home of Nanaimo, BC.
Here, Donni showed us her new favourite coffee shop and she's showing off Nati's new purse hook.


Full size
Donni took us on a tour of downtown Nanaimo. Here you see the shop called 'Pirate Chips', which
I thought was super fun.


Full size
Yup, they legitimately make deep fried Mars bars. I didn't try on though.


Full size
This is a stellar sign.

So, it turns out that there is an island in the harbour called Protection Island, but whose occupants
call it Pirate island. All of the streets have a pirate theme, people dress like pirates, and act like
pirates. I'm not kidding. There's also a sweet floating pub on the island called the Dinghy Dock Pub
and the pub runs the only ferry to the island. For more on Protection Island see HERE .

Here is Natalia after a half litre of wine on the pirate ferry back to Nanaimo.

I took this photo to illustrate the correct driving technique per the BC Driver's Handbook.
Note the 10 and 2 positions of Donni's hands as well as her intense vision assessing what's
coming at her. The only thing to note is the lack of lane changes...


Full size
Donni and Karl took us to Rathtrevor Beach in Parksville, one of the nicer beaches I've spent time at.


Full size
Here are Karl, Donni, and Nati chilling out and having lunch on the beach.


Full size
I think I told Karl that this was his 'Glamour shot'. Yup, that's what I said too.


Full size
One of the cool things about this beach is the shallowness of the water. This allows much
exploration of the sea and plant life. Here is a jellyfish just below the surface.


Full size
Here is a close-up taken underwater.

Donni and Nati wandering the beach.

I gave Rathtrevor Beach the Paul Perrault stamp of approval.

A really nice photo of Bohdahna and Natalia at Rathtrevor Beach on Sunday, 10 Oct, 2010.

We went on a short tour of a cheese factory and Mooberry winery. Here is a sign on the entrance to
the site.


Full size
Here is a llama, hanging out at the farm.


Full size
A better shot of the llama. Watch out - they spit!


Full size
Donni thought that this goat sunning itself was just awesome.

I love roadside attractions. Here you see a sweet gnome in Nanoose Bay.


Full size
The actual sign for the gnome.

Nati and Donni made Karl and I a sweet Thanksgiving turkey and meal. Here are the ladies in the
kitchen going full speed.


Full size
Here is the finished turkey. Yum yum!


Full size
Donni in her new kitchen.


Full size
We went for a little wander at Neck Point park. This is Donni's rainy day outfit and it is stylin'!


Full size
Here is a photo of Karl gazing off into the distance, looking stoic.

Here are the ladies wandering the boardwalk trail.

We arrived to these little surprises - scarecrows with our names on them. Thanks for a fantastic
trip to Nanaimo and visit with the both of you Donni and Karl! See you again soon.
