Nearly the end of August already!?

We are booked for both our Michigan trips - christmas and May/June.  I've yet again changed my plans for my 60th birthday in February.  We have several trips next year so I think I'll go for a late deal city break.  Any place that's not freezing.  Leaning toward Barcelona.

Taking a break from my 365 project.

Flowers & birthdays

A few more of my recent shots.  Hit the 6 month mark on my one year project!




Today we had lunch for Uncle Hugh's birthday.  We were joined by
Hugh's brother, Dan, and Dan's wife Ellen.  A very enjoyable time, as

Danny and I took an overnight trip earlier this week so we could visit the newly refurbished National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.  We were impressed!  Since it's school holidays now for both Scotland and England, it was very crowded.

We travelled back to Glasgow to spend the night, and the next day visited the brand new Riverside Museum of Travel and Transport.  I enjoyed it but Danny thought it wasn't as good as the previous Transport Museum.  I'd never visited so couldn't compare.

We walked the pathway to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum which is fantastic.
