I delivered the Lanarte Cherries cross stitch which was well received by the recipient and now hangs on her wall...how nice! This meant a trip across the pond to Scotland where...
|For a special person on a milestone birthday|
|"Hill House" Helensburgh,Scotland|
|Ross Priory 1693|
We came across this hedge driving over the hill homeward. It was on a narrow farm road and I couldn't resist stopping and taking a picture...out in the middle of nowhere you might say. I would love to know who is responsible for this work of art. It sure brought a smile to my face.
We actually started our trip in Argyle. One of our favourite places in all of the world. When you visit the same place again and again the surroundings are familiar and you settle in quickly
|Cottage at Walled Garden|
|View from the cottage|
|Moody view of Loch Melfort|
|Of course the drive in and out of Melfort Village is filled with amazing views across|
the loch and the one lane road means you drive slower and take it all in.
|Daily trips to Oban to pick up fresh fish|
|Lunch from the Shellfish shack eaten right on the pier|
|Charles Rennie MacIntosh's Willow Tearooms on Buchanan Street|
|Piper buskers on Buchanan Street|
|The Merchant City 18th century architecture is amazing as are the restaurants |
and bars in this area...shopping is great too.
Next time I want to see Charles Rennie MacIntosh's Scotland Street School and House for an Art Lover. As I said I couldn't get enough of Glasgow on this trip...until next time Scotland.
It's a beautiful life when your heart is home!!
