Today, we spent a good portion of the day at the Seattle Scottish Highland Games. We caught several of the games competitions, as well as a performance by the Seattle Knights.
The weather was absolutely divine - low 70s, and overcast till about 3pm, so there was no danger of overheating. If only the weather will hold through next weekend, and the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Festival. *fingers crossed*
It was a bit cool, but I broke out some summer finery, my hand-tatted barefoot sandals by TotusMel on Etsy.
We got to watch the hammer toss:
And the caber toss:
That gent in the right corner of that shot, with his arms raised? He got the flip all three times he tossed. It was a sight to see!
The munchkin defended us from a pirate:
There were shaggy ponies, oops, I mean Irish Wolfhounds!
(There were actually real shaggy ponies too.)
And there were kilts. Ooooh, were there kilts!
We came home, fired up the grill, and stuffed ourselves on cheeseburgers and corn on the cob, and I'm now in my regular spot on the sofa, listening to The Swing Years on NPR and indulging in some blood orange soda. Have I mentioned lately that life is good?
One little old necklace for the evening:
Lucky Stars Green Glass and Sterling Silver Choker
