Amanda & Tim-Seaside Wedding at The dana
It was the day before Thanksgiving that Tim suggested an innocent stop at Hawks Nest Beach on the way from New London, CT to visit Amanda's sister in upstate New York. Tim led the way down to the beach, got down on one knee, and picked up a rock to skip towards Long Island across the sound. Amanda joined in on the fun and Tim did this a couple dozen more times until Amanda turned away just long enough for him to gather his composure and carefully pull the ring out of his pocket. When Amanda turned around, Tim asked the question he'd wanted to ask since the summer. Amanda was surprised, but happily said "yes!" right away!
