(Yeah, I've skipped a day for the moment - the entry for yesterday's tour of the Scottish Highlands is taking a bit longer to put together than I anticipated, so I'm skipping ahead and will hopefully finish it soon)

And just fifteen minutes before midnight it decided to rain, this was not perfect. It ...

... Zealand army band, and marching girl team...precision marching.

I was seated next to a guy from somewhere in England with the broadest cockney accent I have heard...couldn't understand a darn thing he said all night...I nodded and grinned at the appropriate times, but I think he saw through ...
