Marriage Island!!!

Sharon (my wife) and I just returned from San Antonio where I attended the annual conference for the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

This was the 19th annual conference for dentists that treat patients with sleep breathing disorders, usually Obstructive Sleep Apnea.  It was a great meeting and we always enjoy going to San Antonio, as it is one of the 5 most unique cities in the US.  Can you name the other 4??  (Answers at the end of the blog.)

The highlight of the trip turned out to be what happened on Saturday afternoon sitting out on the hotel's patio and enjoying the river's traffic.  We were staying Hotel and came to realize that we were right next to Marriage Island.  Marriage Island is a small (400 square foot) island that is ranked as 1 of the 10 most romantic destination wedding locations in the world!!  Marriage Island is right on the edge of the river, next to Hotel Contessa and hosts 360 weddings every year.

During the 2 hours that Sharon and I sat on the patio we witnessed 3 weddings.  They took less than 30 minutes each and we saw a wide range of wardrobes.  In each wedding the women were dressed to kill and they looked beautiful.  The men, on the other hand, had their own wardrobe ideas.  One wore his cowboy hat, with a string tie; another wore khaki shorts with a long sleeve shirt, and another wore a shirt and tie.  It was a wonderful afternoon and we were glad that we had front row seats to 3 weddings in a row. 

The other 4 unique cities in the US--

New York,   San Francisco,  New Orleans,   Las Vegas
