Rob & Karen

The whole purpose of this trip, remember, was to attend the wedding of my daughter, Karen. So, as much fun as we'd been having, it was all preliminary to The Main Event.

Because of the number of photos taken, it wouldn't be appropriate to present them all here in the Travel section of my website. If you wish to see every single one—and who wouldn't?—feel free to click directly to my Karen section or to her full wedding page.

The wedding was held at the home of Chip Simpson, Rob's dad. The house, beautifully restored and decorated, was actually built in the 1870s.
