...well, i guess everyday here is going to be a 'busy day'...
we left at 9am to take another scenic drive up the hills / mountains to go to Inverary and then on to Oban. just beautiful. we saw lots of lochs on our tours ( lakes ) and it was so amazing...kinda a drizzling overcast day today, but still lots of great pictures!
did a little bit of shopping too...
tyler has been buying as many little 'stuffies' as he can find and courtney is into all the different treats and snacks she can find! i cannot find any scrapbooking stores here though...i guess we better move here so i can introduce the Scots to it!!! we went for dinner tonight in Inverary at George's Pub and Hotel.
THAT was very cool...it was so 'old brittish' in there...i was waiting for a bunch of knights to come in with their armour and swords and order an ale!! so cool...of course lots of pictures! there was a young lady inside also selling handmade celtic jewelry so i bought myself a beautiful new thumb ring!! and my mom bought courtney her very first ring too!! and not to be left out, mike even surprised me when he came back from the bathroom with his own shiny new celtic band on his finger!! heeheehee...
it was a good day!
we are off tomorrow to drive out to Edinburgh for the day...shopping and a castle tour during the day and then to the Edinburgh Tattoo in the evening...going to be just amazing!!
i don't think i will be able to blog for a few days after this as we won't arrive back to our flat until around midnite tomorrow night and then we leave at 10am the next morning to go to Dublin, Ireland for three days! ( aug. 20 - 22 ) so i will blog for sure when we return to Glasgow!
AND...miss courtney will be celebrating her 10th birthday while we are in Ireland on August 21...how cool is that?? ( don't worry family and friends...she has already made sure that she will still get a birthday party when we return home to Canada!!! )
better be off for a good nights sleep...gonna be a long one tomorrow!!
be back in a few days!!
