We went diving again, twice. (Oh, and we also got married! )

Breakfast as usual upstairs with the birds, then a 10:30 dive at Superman's Flight, where all I notice is a really strong current. Back to the room for a quick shower. Really, just a rinse off. (Steve said, You're not going to do your hair and stuff are you?!!? Of course not, I reassured him.) Then, lunch as usual. I was starting to feel a little queasy and nervous to tell you the truth. I am not big on ceremonies, and I really hope I don't have much of a speaking part in this one.
Just before 1:00, we met our minister. I was quite pleased to see she was in jeans. This is looking good.
Afterward, everyone insisted Steve lift me up on the beach for that special "just married!" shot.
OK, back to diving! We hopped on the boat for our second dive, at Pinnacles -- big underwater mountains. Strong current again. Not great.
Back on dry land, we bought postcards and made out our "wedding annoucements" while slamming banana daiquiris. I called mom and dad (surprised but pleased!), but we couldn't reach Steve's parents.
We had a small nap (the staff had prettily festooned our bed with more flowers -- I give up!), then we decided to eat upstairs at the Tree House, although we originally told them we would eat at Andsara.
When we finally got to the restaurant, they had a very nice special table set up for us. There was a nice breeze, and everything was so lovely, so romantic. First was a goat cheese appetizer (good), then a salad (fine), then sorbet (quite tasty). Then a very, very long wait (annoying) and I nearly had a nap! Finally, we were served our main course. For me, ravioli in "tequila tomato cream" (spectacular). Steve reported his duck was good, but oversauced. Also included in the package was a cake (dry). It was shaped like a heart and said "two hearts beat as one" (cheesy ...but funny).
Speaking of cheesy, back in the bar we were entertained by a Kenny G wanna-be wailing out smooth jazz. We stopped in to silently mock him. But everyone was really enjoying him, bobbing their heads. I got the giggles and we had to leave. Such a Bridezilla!
