Trip to Scotland

Before anyone notices that we went North, back South to go North there is a reason.  I had bought my tickets to fly to Glasgow long before I had the dates when we could visit Anna and William.  So just to let you know that I do know what I did.  I know sometimes it looks like I don’t.

I wanted to take David to meet my really good friends Andrew better known as Fred & his wife M.  Fred told me to fly into Glasgow and then we could drive along the Lochs back to Kiltarlity.  Fred said there were some great places for photos.  I was thinking that I had been on a sight seeing trip with you before and I knew how you would do this.  You drive 70 miles per hour and say this is a Loch, this is a castle and just keep driving.  If I needed to pee I would tell Fred and sooner or later he would pull over by a bush.  He said, “Oh no, I will stop”.  So enjoy these photos that I took while driving down the road.  I didn’t get any photos of the Lochs because I was sitting on the wrong side of the car and did not feel like rolling all over the back seat to take photos of the Lochs.

 

 

Fred told us we would stop at Fort Williams for some fish and chips. I asked if he knew where one was.  He told me that he looked it up on the internet and all he could find were Chinese and Indian take outs.  When we arrived there he had to ask a local where one was.  We found it.  I did take a pee at the pub across from it, so I didn’t have to stop at a bush. There was a table in the shop, but would he seat there, no we sat in the car.

 

We made it to the Byre, http://inchbrakie.tripod.com/the-byre

It was great to make it back to a place which feels like home to me.  When I lived in England and I would need to get away from all the people we would go here.  It is hard for a girl from a little town in Alaska to be in a big town like London.

David and Fred seemed to hit it off, so I was happy!
