JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Grey Nomad Chapter Six

Day Seven - The Wedding

We booked into a caravan park in Roma called the Big Rig.  It was really pleasant despite a lot of negative comments on WikiCamps.  We had a lovely grassed area under the shade of a large tree.  What more could you ask for.  It was right beside the Bungil Creek Motor Inn where most of the wedding guests were staying.  Very convenient for us.  We caught up with most of our friends at dinner the night before the wedding at BC Bar and Grill and I give it five stars.  The food was yummy.
The day of the wedding Philip and I did a bit of housekeeping.....washing mostly.....and then ironed the clothes that we were to be wearing to the wedding.  As you can imagine in our little camper there is no hanging space so everything gets laid flat.
At 3pm we all made our way to the church where the service was to be held.  It was a beautiful service and so much love in the vows Scott and Cara made to each other.
After the service most of us went to the Irish Pub to have a drink while we waited for the buses to pick us up and take us to the reception that was about 15km outside Roma.
The reception venue was extraordinarily lovely.  The owners had renovated the old homestead and turned it into a beautiful venue.  We were allowed to wander inside the house to have a look at how life was at the turn of the century.
The canapé reception was fantastic and the music played by a local band got everyone up dancing.  What a great night.  At the end of the evening the buses returned to take us all back into town and dropped us off at our various accommodations.  It turned rather cool towards the end of the night so I was very pleased to lay my head down in our lovely warm camper.
