Another long weekend has come and gone

Why is it that long weekends always seem to fly by so quickly? It's not like we actually have long weekends here with our business, because we never really have 'holidays'. Holidays are actually our busiest days with guests at the inn filtering in and out.

Victoria Day...I've never really thought much about this holiday, except for the fact that we had an extra day off work and a nice extra long weekend. My British friends always thought it was amusing that we celebrate Victoria Day. In Ontario, all my colleagues always called it "May two-four weekend" and I never had a clue what they were talking about because in Quebec no one calls it that. Anyway, "May two-four weekend" has always been something I looked forward to.

This one was an insanely hectic one.
1) My former students (from Mexico, Korea and China) came up to the island for a visit. They arrived at 6AM on Sat. and we did the whole touring the island thing. I brought them to the beach where J and I will get married in a few weeks. With my two little nieces in tow, we had a blast. The water was a beautiful crystal aqua color and the beach was just gorgeous. The students also went hiking at the Cup and Saucer hiking trail and Bridal Veil Falls.

2) J's youngest sister was up on the island to help bring down the barn. What an ordeal. They sure stopped traffic as everyone wanted to see what was going on. The old barn was built in 1940 and was just too old for J to be driving is tractor in. It had to go.

3) BBQ parties and family dinners..

4) LOTS of motel duties. We're fully booked again this weekend. This means lots of cleaning and mountains of laundry.

I had a great long weekend. It was loads of fun. Tomorrow night J and I have our marriage course to attend. I'm curious as to what is involved since we're getting married in a few weeks. What exactly is entailed in these 'courses'?
