Saturday was a happy day for Dan (The Fuel Man) Mikkonen and Roxanne Lodge. They were wed in Alert on a cool cloudy day, with an ice-covered Lincoln Sea as the backdrop. Captain Allan Lynk presided over the ceremony.
The happy couple presented themselves for all the photographers, and then went out for a photo shoot around the station.
Dinner was next, with a wedding cake and all. A reception was held at the Arctic Club afterwards. They then tracked off in a BV to the love shack on Kirk Lake for an improvised honeymoon weekend get-away. Presumably a honeymoon vacation will be coming up in the near future.
Here is a picture of the happy couple with a furry-faced me to the right.
Hmmm, aren’t we in Nunavut now? That sign really needs to be updated!
