On my travels with the writing group we spent a day in Inverness. Inverness is the governing body of the highlands and where the River Ness begins.
Laura and I walked along the river to the botanical gardens, where because of the cooler weather in the highlands, the azaleas and rodidendrons were still in bloom. After our walk and a few purchases, I met up with Dave and C.J. for lunch. They recommended the Cullen Scink. I had seen it on a few menus but like Haggis I hadn’t have the nerve to try it. But based on their recomendation, I orded a bowl and licked it clean. It’s made with smoked haddock, potatoes and onions and tasted like a smoky clam chowder.
I walked out of the restaraunt and straight into these wee Scottish dancers.
They start them young in Scotland.
Next I browsed the Victorian Market on my way to the Hootenanny Pub for live music. If you like the acordian, then you will love this place. There were tables of regulars and they got us up dancing.
I was ‘delighted’ to here there from several of my fellow travelers that they have “cute” videos of me dancing too.
