Citrus groves, rain, then headwinds. That’s the boring part.
The exciting part was that I was escorted into Sebring by Tiffany, girlfriend of Blue Lagoon Saloon part-owner Bob, and Tiffany was late for a wedding. Now, when she told me this, I figured that she must be in a hurry to get home and have a shower and do all those girl things that girls do before weddings. Ah, no. Fifteen minutes after arriving at the Blue Lagoon Saloon, Rus (27) and Lyn (21), two regulars at the Blue Lagoon Saloon bar and restaurant, were married there and then at a table in the restaurant.
I kid you not. The happy couple popped open a bottle of champagne after the ceremony, and it was all official.
Rus and Lyn had met in the Blue Lagoon Saloon three months earlier, and so they thought it appropriate that they should be legally married there. Lyn’s sister was the one to officiate the wedding. She is a notary public, and therefore has the power to make these things happen. Pretty original! I wish Lyn and Rus all the best.
