What do men do when the women have a bridal shower? My niece Rebecca and fiancé Henry will be married in July. Unfortunately, because of our Japan trip, we will not witness this joyous event. So it was a pleasure to host a family bridal shower in Southworth. The men occupied the time with an excursion to Blake Island. I borrowed enough kayaks and canoes to float ten of us over to the south end of the island. After enjoying sack lunches on the beach we took a leisurely 3 mile hike around the island, before paddling back. Fortunately, the rain held off and the wind did not pick up. The ladies enjoyed a pleasant shower and we filled our stomachs at a BBQ. Ellen, Doug and Pam stated the night and joined us for a soggy Sunday in Southworth.
