Our day at Afton Station began on such a happy note. A very cute young couple from Lancashire, England, who signed the guest book simply "Mr. and Mrs. Daniels", stopped by as they drove across Route 66, having been married in New York City over the weekend. We love visits from newlyweds, and these folks were so obviously happy that they cheered up the whole atmosphere at the Station. They told us about a group called Virgin Holidays, which plans every aspect of U.S. weddings for those living in other countries. The "package deal" included a choice of venues (they chose Central Park), and all other expenses, and they even arrange for someone to do the marrying. Therefore, they paid less for this wedding (and subsequent 3-week honeymoon) than they would have paid for a large wedding back home in the U.K. Awesome!
Toward the end of the day, a group of 8 friends from the Czech Republic pulled up in two cars. They, too, are traveling across Route 66, all the way. Here are seven of them. The eighth was asleep in the car until after the photo was taken. They very much enjoyed the pressed penny machine.
