... it started lightly raining before we went on. As soon as we started it began to pour sheets of rain. The kids were incredible as they sang and danced in the rain. I played guitar and both I and the guitar were thoroughly soaked.
The only time it stopped was when we sang "WALKING ON SUNSHINE", it started right back afterwards.

Our last stop was just inside the Scotland border at Gretna. This was a popular stop for young people to elope when you had to be 21 to marry in England
Arrived at the hotel around 5:30pm.
After a short break we headed out for dinner at a quaint little Italian place for pizza.
On our way home stopped at a local pub- The Queens Arms. Had a very nice 12 yr old single malt whiskey called Dalmore 12.
