Last weekend, the whole family piled in the station wagon and we cruised out to Pleasanton, a town south of here and a bit more inland. And in this area inland = hot. Despite this very un-Scottish weather, we were off to a very Scottish gathering. The annual highland games in Pleasanton is said to be one of the largest (if not the largest) in the country. While there, we were treated to a wee dram from the folks in the Sinclair clan tent, we heard pipe bands play, and we enjoyed Scottish delicacies (?) like meat pies and peas, and Irn Bru. This picture is dad (all kilted up, of course) and son — who, of course, needs to start getting to know his culture. (Don’t worry, folks, he’ll get to know Tex-Mex culture, too.)
Also, some of you might have been hesitant to download the earlier-posted videos because of their large size, or you might have had technical issues. So I spliced them all together and put them in a different (Windows Media) format, which should be friendlier to slower connections. If you’re interested, here it is.
