After looking at the place, Dan sugested another spot he knew about, with a 20-foot waterfall. Sounded possible, so he and I went to check it out...and it really is gorgeous. A little steep going to get there, so I dunno if it'll work or not, but *I* certainly will go back for some pictures, regardless. We shot the breeze back and forth, and I may get to actually do some bow-hunting this year with him, which would rock.
Before we left for home, though, I managed to wrangle some time alone with Di's dad. See, maybe it's the Southern Boy in me, but I wouldn't feel right marrying Di without having sat down and specifically gotten her parents' approval. It was bad enough that Di had already told them we were going ahead with this, before I got a chance to do this, and I knew they approved, but it was just something I needed to do. Actually, it was a little funny: when I sat down to talk to him, he got this grin on his face, that seemed to say that he thought I might do this, but it went very cool. He totally approved of our getting married, and that made all the difference to me.
Addendum: I actually typed this up two hours ago, but just as I finished, jahnji showed up unexpectedly, back early from his most recent trip up to Canada. Always good to see him, and got to see the pix he took of him and his new girl, Danielle. I'm very happy for him, but I hate the fact that he might move up there...sucks to see good friends go. Still, it really rocks to see him so happy, and he's not actually going to be that far away.
