The Main Event

This week marks the halfway point through my time in Australia, but more importantly, last night was the culmination of why so many of us have come so far: Damian and Angela's wedding.

The weather? Sunny and warm, with no wind. The ceremony? Short and heartfelt, with a small crowd of family and friends. The reception? Amazing food, plenty of wine, and some not-too-crazy dancing overlooking the beach. Just about perfect. It was so great to share this time with Damo and Ange. As much as I've made a big ol' backpacking adventure out of this trip, last night was the reason behind it all, and it couldn't have been a better night.

Post-wedding partying was a bit stymied by Noosa's strict "in-by-1:30" law, so after a drink or two at the very posh, hidden, yet laid back Flamingo Lounge, those of us who didn't make it into the next venue by 1:30 went home and had a good, satisfying night of sleep.
