Last week was a school vacation week and we went to Scotland. It was a great trip. We avoided the cities for the most part and spent some lovely time first on the Isle of Arran and then at Loch Lommond. Scotland is a beautiful place. It was very green with lots of rolling hills and space. We’ve lived here for so long that it’s easy to forget how a little elevation variation can be so beautiful. We did a couple of nice walks, visited a distillery, ate lots of pub meals, and rode on ferries. Add to that a yummy Indian food experience, delicious scones, a good friend, a surprise ice cream stop, and a super used bookstore discovery – you’ve got yourself a perfectly lovely week.
