A man and his girlfriend of 7 years got engaged here at the Sea Biscuit in September. My Peebles coworker Dave Kimmer, arranged with me to have Tim the pelican carry, around his neck, a ring box.
The couple were visitors here twice in
the past. She was particularly fond of the pelican. So, after admiring
the various other birds, she went to give Tim a hug. I said "We knew you
were coming so Tim has a little gift for you". She opened the box and
her husband to be dropped to one knee and said "Tim and I want to know
if you'll marry me"
After a few astonished moments and hugs and tears, he said "I didn't hear a yes"
Of course she loudly and enthusiastically said "YES!"
We LOVE happy endings
