Wonderful Wednesday Personal Blog
I don't believe I've said enough about food in Scotland.
If I could define the trip in just a few prosaic words, they would be music, castles, and food. And whisky.
We sang hundreds of songs and attended numerous concerts. I have a group of CDs I bought in my car and listen to them over and over on my long trips to the city and back.
We saw soooo many castles. It was close to overload, but you can always see one more, right?
And they fed us well. Even when we were on our own for a meal (which wasn't often), we managed to discover some pretty tasty food. I'm not a person who takes a lot of pictures of her food, but I have a few from the trip I'm happy to share.
The whisky? Our host was kind enough to share 'the dram of the day' with us each afternoon (or a wine alternative). He shared the tasting notes for each, also, which often reduced us to giggles.
Our lunches on the road were often sandwiches, but so very fresh and with numerous fillings to choose from. I might have crab salad one day, cheese or ham another. And the day Jim's mum brought us Forfar Bridies was truly special. Especially since she then honored us with a song before she left.
But one of the true treats was the fresh fruit Susie often bought along the way. It was great to see her passing out containers of blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries. All of the fruits were extremely sweet, and the raspberries were huge!
Our trip was winding down, but we had a full day in Stirling before our final party and the good-byes began. More on that tomorrow.
This is where I talk about things in my life outside of writing. Mostly gardening and dogs.
