Another Trip Down Memory Lane

I like to mix this blog up a lot. It jumps around from art to ramblings to photos of Scotland and back to Canada lol

Today we have some pictures from the first year that I was here in 2005. I was looking through these pictures trying to get ideas for drawings, found a few of the skeebies that might make cool drawings.

Here is the war memorial in town. Its a bit of a hike to get up to it one way but there is an easier round the back way if a person isn't up to the hill *raises hand :p

Part of the path to get to the memorial. I had a friend see this picture and say "Oh my god, you live in the ***king Shire. o.O" Looks like it some days :p

The view from the top of the hill. We had to cut our hike trip short as a storm was coming. And coming fast. Hey you can see our flat :p The views from here on a clear day are gorgeous. You can see the Airlie Memorial Tower when its a clear blue sky.

So we leave Forfar and unto Glamis Castle.

John's family had never been even though its only 10 minutes away lol I had to cut the castle tour short as I wasn't feeling well but we spent the day walking around the gardens and looking at the Skeebies.

Next day trip was to the Arbroath Abbey. Was a really interesting place. I would love to go back one day and just take hundreds of pictures of all the gravestones. Some of the detail on them is amazing.

And the Arbroath cliffs. Can get really windy, but its a nice day when the sun is shining.

There was a chick sunbathing topless on the cliffs so all the guys were almost pushing each other to get a look :p

It was very hot that day so we needed ice cream :p No he didn't eat all of this, I think I did :p

And a skeebie taking amuch needed rest :p

Back with art tomorrow :D

Fab photos - can see some great drawings coming from these. I like blogs that are a bit of a mish mash of everything, much more interesting to read :-)
