Scottish Reunion

October 12, 2014

It was a great reunion of our Scottish travelers today, i. drummond castle18and the weather gave it even a more Scottish feel–misty rain and mild temperatures. 25 of the travelers came with spouses and/or significant others and we had over 30 today to recap a fabulous trip. Clay has done another outstanding video and it really makes the trip feel somehow more real–and it makes us all want to go back. We did 4 showings of the video so everyone had a chance to see it on our big screen, and then everyone got to take home a copy. Those who did not make it, will get one sent to them.

We saw great gardens, experienced the culture of another country, but also learned a lot about each other. c Parkhead Gardens22 I always come away feeling I have made new friends, and today felt almost like a family reunion. Great food and great fellowship–and lots of food–we had shepherds pie, bangers and mash, 2 soups–potato and leek and potato, Guinness stew, Branford pickle and cheese sandwiches, tea sandwiches, scones, shortbread, pate, cheese, fruit, and so much more. It was outstanding, but the company was even better. Scotland reunion 2014.5

Parkhead Perth.022 We were fortunate that my friend Chris who is from Scotland was on hand to help make the call as I had Stewart’s number in my phone but from in Scotland, not the USA and I was clueless.
A fine time was had by all! If you have ideas of travel destinations, share them, as I will be trying to set some for the upcoming years. We have a couple of rooms left for our France trip, so come join us!

    Couldn’t help but notice you didn’t have any haggis or blood pudding at your Scottish feast!
