Boat Jumble, Humanist Wedding and Simple Supper

25 May

1   We went to the annual Boat Jumble today and I found a beautiful terracotta wash basin with a painted rim. We understand it came from a boat and would love to know more if any reader can help.

2    I conducted a Humanist Wedding today with torrential rain outside and the sunniest of smiles inside the marquee. It was, as always, a beautifully simple  event, unique to the couple involved. Click on any photo in the gallery to see detail.

3   A simple supper was called for tonight – a delicious Asparagus, Pea and Lemon Risotto. We didn’t have any white wine so I used a splash of red instead and it was truly scrumptious.

    The marque, a twinning or intertwined wigwams perfect for a marriage to take place. Set amidst the elements; rain, sky, sea and the lay of green earth -now that is a union fitting of love,

    Porcelain basin treasure, I’ve seen only metal, but am no sailor.

      Humanist weddings are almost always somewhere elemental and all the more special for that. 🙂
