  3. Must have been fun! It is so impressing to see how the sheepdogs manoeuvre the sheep! Fascinating....and so are the men in kilt! :)

    Great shots - by the look at them you had a lovely day!

  4. Great shots Denise-- especially the helicopter. I've been trying for months to get a good shot of one and never been successful. Yours is great. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. It must be very intriguing to watch the dog heard the sheep. I wouldn't mind seeing that myself. The country side is beautiful, Denise.

  9. That was a beautiful open area for the festival. I'd love to see sheep dog trials sometime. I'll bet that was fun to watch.

  10. Scotts kept them plantation mechanicals working in old Hawaii!
    Archibald Cleghorn married a Princess and fathered another, and left his name upon a street here in Waikiki....

  23. As a child, I would sit a-top my fathers shoulders to watch the Highland Games. I left Scotland when I was eight, but I still remember the skirl of the pipes and the tossing of the cabers as vividly as if it were only yesterday - your last post brought it all back to me.

    Very atmospheric photo's here - you sure do get around!

  24. Sharp detail on the chopper. Were there bagpipes? Bagpipes are perfect for the wide open spaces.

  25. Thanks for visiting me. Love the Scotts photos.I always wonder what Scotts men wear under their kilts, I always imagine the fabric would be a bit itchy. Nice to meet you.xxx

  29. My favorite is the photo of the goats in the foreground. Before enlarging it with a click, it looked vaguely like the goats were being walked by a woman holding their leash. :-D

    Your 9/11 post contained many very poignant photos. A sincere photo tribute.
