spend your honeymoon? Anything exciting happen while there?
I was talking about my honeymoon this past Saturday evening... re-living the excitement of that weekend! We got married in February and had a trip to Charleston, SC planned for our honeymoon. We had been invited to a preview showing of Gods and Generals by hubby's first cousin so we left our reception and headed to the theatre. The weather was fine during our wedding and during the time it took to get to the movie but when we came out of the theatre 3 hours later, sleet was 2 inches deep everywhere!
We got a hotel right there for the night so we would not have to travel in the dark. The next morning we got up and proceeded slowly down the interstate. There wasn't much traffic and what was out there was moving slowly too. There was a car in front of us that was going super slow so hubby pulled into the far left lane to pass him. When we were well in front of him hubby decided to get back over one lane. Well, when he attempted this the rear end of the truck started coming around to the front... Hubby was cool and kept his way about him but the truck was having its own way. Thank goodness all of the traffic behind us was going slow because they all were able to get stopped. After shimmying from side to side for what seemed like forever, the truck started sliding backwards across all 5 lanes! We ended up in the ditch! We sat there while the other traffic finally came on through and then we managed to get back on the interstate and resume our journey. It was not but about 5 miles on down the road that it was like a switch had been turned off. The highway was DRY!! No sleet in sight! Really wierd let me tell you! I was just glad that we got through that unscathed...us, our truck...and anyone else for that matter!
Then if that were not enough excitement, we were driving down one of the narrow side streets in downtown Charleston and there was a dumptruck sitting half on, half off the sidewalk. They were doing some kind of repairs and throwing the garbage into the backend of the truck.
There were some college kids ahead of us and hubby was watching them so he wouldn't hit anyone when all of a sudden we heard a gunshot!! Immediately my lap filled up with glass from the passenger window! I almost freaked out and went to looking at my body to see if I had been shot!
Come to find out the large mirror on the dumptruck had hung our mirror, which wasn't small by any means of the imagination. Ours was a break away but when the dump truck mirror hung it and then as we got past the truck, it let go of our mirror with such a force that it banged into the passenger window and busted it out! It took us a while to find someone to repair the window that day but we did get it replaced.
And then the funniest thing ever... We finally made it to our hotel and checked in. The place was super nice and we went out sight seeing for a while. Hubby took me to Fort Sumter and gave me a history lesson. yes! on our honeymoon. :)
But the funny thing that happened that night... We were deep asleep... it is about 1 a.m. in the morning when management banged on our door. We finally got our wits about us and went to the door. He told us he would have to call the law if we did not quieten down!! WHAT!!! We told him we were asleep and had been asleep and he just looked at us like "uh huh". I was so embarrassed! He had the wrong room but I bet the one who needed the knock on the door heard what was going on in the hall because we didn't hear any loud noises after the man left.
However, we both looked at each other and started laughing hysterically. Now THAT is a honeymoon memory my friends!
So, I just wondered... would you like to tell us about your honeymoon?
