Jary = Jay + Mary
This weekend, these two lovebirds had a beautiful wedding on Peaks Island, off of the coast of Portland, Maine.
The next morning, we had breakfast before meeting with Tomas for a tour of Quito. Neither of us had seen Tomas since graduating, so it was fantastic to catch up after so long! We started by meandering through churches and beautiful public squares in the Old Town portion of Quito.
All the hard parts of getting married are finally behind us: planning (although we had quite a bit of help), writing and delivering vows, dancing, breaking the piggy bank, and, quite possibly the worst of all, going back to work for a few days between the wedding and the honeymoon. Throughout all of this, we had been looking forward to 10 days of adventuring and relaxing in Quito and the Galápagos Islands (Ecuador), and the day finally arrived for our honeymoon! “Luna de Miel” is the literal translation of “Honey Moon” in Spanish.
We arrived early at the track for our races; mine was first at 9am and Rachel’s was second-to-last at 1:30pm. It was chilly to start, but the sky was clear so we were thankful for a nicer day than last week at Fruitland’s. After dressing up and registering, we got on the track to warm up but less than half way through the first practice lap, Rachel got a flat tire and became a bit frazzled. It wasn’t the best start to the day, but it was all uphill from there.
