1988 England & Scotland
This trip centered around a stay with a couple in Dunoon, Scotland during the Scottish Highland Games. There were five hundred bagpipers competing, and at the end of the competition there was a loud, drunken parade down the main street of the village. All the pipe bands prancing and playing and hold up their trophies. Pictured above is also parade watchers from a second story window. We also went to York by train from London where my ancestors came from. We strolled along the wall (of the walled city) in the evening and visited the "Shambles", a very old part of the city which is leaning in on the street to the extent that the glass in the windows are bending.
