Pre-wedding activities started on Thursday, two days before the wedding. The groom had arranged a boar hunt for the men. Stories of that hunt sounded quite horrible to me. Feral hog were rounded up and set loose on a ranch. Cur dogs were then sent out to find them up for spear wielding hunters. Spencer and four other men of the wedding party killed 5 boar. I know that our son Daniel and his cousin Adam had a great time! The meat of the boar has since been processed and is now sitting in Spencer's grandfather's freezer. I think what the women of the wedding party did was a bit more enjoyable. We took a luncheon cruise on the Calypso Queen, which sailed out of the harbor at Clearwater Beach. We were served a buffet lunch, the waiter kept us hydrated with rum punch and other drinks of our choosing. Members of the party were given an opportunity to steer the boat under the direction of the captain. We had a great relaxing time.
