Mayfair To Minoru

August 16th, 2009

Mayfair Golf Course in Richmond! I really like that golf course. It has this beautiful little island with the most perfect lawn surrounded by pretty flowery shrubs and a little grassy pathway that leads up to the island. How does it get better than that?

It was P&M's wedding this Sunday morning and, of course lovely weather. The sun was just a tad too relentless on me, but I got a wicked tan on one arm. Wedding Commissioner Kelly Ip did his usual wonderful job. I really enjoy his bi-lingual ceremonies and how he announces various parts of the processional / wedding party, so all the guests know who's coming down the aisle. I think he's the only Wedding Commissioner that has a white tux.

Later that day, there was another wedding at Minoru Chapel where the parents and some family members of the Bride and Groom sang some hymns. They were so nervous about doing a good job. One of the most musical weddings I've been to as there was not only the harp, but parental choir, opera singer, and pianist! They were very sweet and enjoyed the hymns I played in the prelude.

Little bunnies were sleeping behind the Chapel in the shade. I know the bunnies are bad for the rose shrubs and plants etc, but I can't help that I'm completely charmed by their soft bunnyness. I think they installed a hawk and a baby hawk to naturally cull the area, which, I have to admit, is completely overrun with rabbits. However, I've met so many people who make it their daily routine to walk down to Minoru Park and feed the bunnies. The rabbits bring so much joy to people; I would hate to see them disappear from the park. I took a picture of some Canadian geese... look he's standing on the other one’s back!
