20130531-0611 Trip to Boston and Martha's Vineyard -- A Wedding and A Memorial

My cousin Hal was getting married. Carole had a narrow window in which to hold a memorial service for her father (who died in 2012 while Carole was recovering from her knee operation). We combined the two for a long trip. Forgive the lengthy post. I want to list all the galleries in one place, and post a few select images.

We left Minneapolis on May 31, 2013 CE, in time to make the rehearsal dinner in Boston. We stayed with my uncle Lee and Aunt Lulu in Lexington, which is always a pleasure. The wedding was great, and we mingled with our new "table family", the bride's relatives. I should like to get to know them better; a fascinating group.

From Boston, we went to Martha's Vineyard by ferry. Carole as much advance work from here as she could, but she needed to be present for much of the preparation for her father's memorial services and spreading of the ashes. She visited old friends and old haunts, I met many lovely people, we visited as many of the touristy places as we had time for. And we ate fresh eggs and fresh seafood all across the Vineyard.

The Boston photo galleries were fairly easy to make. The trip to Martha's Vineyard was a hodgepodge of people and events. Dividing up the photos to make coherent galleries was a challenge. Hope you can get a glimpse of our experiences.
