It’s amazing when you think about it. I lived in London, England for a couple of years. I’ve visited Scotland numerous times during my military career. My family and I have visited England for two vacations totaling over a month of tourist time.
So, it truly is wonderful to arrive in Anchorage, Alaska and see that the 30th annual Alaska Scottish Games are being held on Saturday. Gotta go…
I got Big Red’s boo boo fixed at SafeLite before heading out. It was a typical Scottish day – overcast, cool, a bit windy. The only thing missing was the horizontal rain.
The games were being held at the Eagle River Lions Club Park in, well, Eagle River. Just a few miles down the road. I got there pretty early for me (9am) and watched some individual competitions in bagpipe:

Of course, there was dancing:
and good food:
Lots o’ good highland music:
