England- Dropping in for a Wedding....

Near the end of our trip to England, we visited Salisbury Cathedral.  While the cathedral and the city were both very nice, I think the most exciting part of the day was when this happened...
We were looking at the cathedral when we overheard one of the guides say to someone, "Are you here for the parachuting before the wedding?" Parachuting??? We got the details from the guide and found out that there was a wedding that day and the groom and groomsmen were part of the Royal Navy and would be jumping in the next 10 minutes...
When we got outside, we saw the plane circling overhead, and soon enough, the jumpers appeared.  Those on the ground had made a giant X out of red fabric so the parachuters would know where to land and most of the made the mark. Most of them...
This guy overshot a little and nearly ran us over!  It was quite a way to "drop in" for a wedding. It was an incredible sight. I hope they all had a good time. We had a good time watching!
