A Scottish Adventure!

     This has been a summer of change.   This post celebrates the finish of a career, not a quilt!   I retired from my full time job at the end of June.  In mid July, my husband, son, daughter and I traveled to Scotland, and walked from coast to coast along the John Muir Way.  We also were able to spend extra time in Glasgow and in Edinburgh, and had a wonderful time.  We walked in the rain, and walked in the sun.  We walked on tow paths, along canals, in farm fields, in forests, in woods, along cliffs, and on the beach.  We saw little towns, and bigger cities.   We climbed to the top Arthur's Seat;  we climbed to the edge of the Roman empire.  We met wonderful locals, said hello to many little dogs, sheep, cows, horses and ponies. We saw modern architectural wonders and ancient castles.  We saw formal gardens and roadside wildflowers.  We visited distilleries and breweries.  We ate and drank well, and were so fortunate to be able to spend all this time together as a family.  And, of course, I stopped whenever there was a quilt store!   Enjoy these photos; I'll have some finished quilts to post soon.

  1. Wonderful photos of a super trip. It looks like you made the most of your adventure. The British Isles has so much beauty to off and unusual places. Shame we cannot get the weather sorted but that didn't seem to matter to you on your trails. Glad you managed to find a couple of quilt shops to.
