Here is a sampling of our very busy day, which ended with our 4 1/2-yr-old granddaughter competing in her first Highland Dancing competition...she was SO excited:). Enjoy.
Some of many bands and drill groups who participated in the events.
I was amazed at the variety of wares available...including this tea pot chime. What a lovely sound, though I personally don't care for the shiny display. I was looking for pottery or something more subtle. Maybe wood. But this must be a new rage. What do you do with old silver? I have a box of my mother's and another two boxes of my mother-in-laws silver. Lovely at the time, I'm sure. But we just don't use it. Any ideas?
Dancers come in all ages and sizes. We love to watch the little ones as they learn to perform their steps with all the thrill and nerves that come from performing in front of a huge crowd. Though our little brunette was a trooper, and seemed to thrive under the adulation:). Another festival coming to a close...and yes, it rained, and the sun came out, and it rained, and it was overcast.....nothing new about Festival weather!
