Three Things Thursday: July 9, 2015

My contribution to to the lovely Nerd in the Brain’s weekly show-n-tell of happiness all come from our wonderful first day at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in North Carolina.

  

It’s both one thing and many things, so I’ll try to narrow it down to three themes – I may cheat and show you more than one picture for each category, if you don’t mind.

Music – lots of gorgeous fiddle and mandolin, spiced with flutes, drums and fabulous harmonies:

 

 

Sheepdog Trials (my weakness, I could watch them all day):

  
  

 
The Torchlight Ceremony recognizing all 120 Scottish Clans and Societies in attendance:


 
 
And I will bonus you some gratuitous “Men in Kilts.”

  Thank you as always, Nerd in the Brain, for letting me share my happies!

    • It’s really cool. Im sure you would enjoy the cultural village- they have experts presenting from sword fighting to cooking to dancing to weaving, with a lot of wonderful artisans participating. It’s gorgeous up here and the weather’s been stunning
