We're back from bonnie Scotland. One of the most bittersweet departures, leaving part of my family, yet going home to more family. A beautiful, memorable and amazing journey was had by all. I believe that this time it was made more exciting by being able to see the looks on my daughter's and parents' faces as we explored Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Port of Glasgow/Greenock, the Highlands, including Glencoe, Pichlochry, the 3 Sisters (SPECTACULAR), Loch Ness, Loch Lomond, and more. And did we find Nessie? Why yes we did! We were able to take a short cruise on the black Loch and see the whole water mass with the aid of sonar and GPS, along with funny and interesting tales from our tour guide who had the look of a pirate to me. Aside from awesome countryside and architecture, Victorian cemeteries and churches, we visited my son, daughter in law and granddaughter. Being able to stay in their nice flat made it totally wonderful. They were the bests hosts available in the world. Photos to be posted soon!
