these stories need to be more engaging

Close friends knew that we were either coming back from this trip engaged, or flying back on separate flights. Fortunately for us (and everyone else!) the former has happened.

On a memorable Canada Day in Puerto Ayora, Galapagos Islands, Andrew popped the question to Julie.


we’re engaged!

We were on a harbour front dock patio at the Red Mangrove restaurant sharing the evening with a single Heron, who was fishing for his dinner as we finished ours. Andrew pulled out the box but didn’t want to take the ring out as the dock had slots to the water.  He asked me if I would marry him timidly. With the ring on my finger and the appearance of our waiter we had this picture taken. Happy and excited to celebrate our engagement and Canada Day together, we headed off to a local bar to dance the night away :) -Julie
