      ... the thing - I like swimming pools, but I'm pretty playful and I like to chat or do stuff or throw a ball or something. Now I know the boys from back home will get involved in stuff like this, but Becky likes to sit and sunbathe and/or read a book. So I just end up sitting there and rather than sitting here and writing, I end up sitting there and being cooked by the sun. I reckon I could still get a better tan, but I'd only feel guilty that I wasn't being productive. Maybe I need ...

      Johnnie and I wake up and have a leisurely morning. We are tired from the dive yesterday and decide to just take it easy. Our wedding time is set for 11:00 am at the Lily Pond in Flecker Botanical Gardens. We get prepared and head that way. Upon arrival, everyone is there and waiting on us. I am glad I checked email yesterday morning and had heard from James, our videographer. Funny story. Johnnie and I get set ...
