          Today (aug. 1) was our first day in the theater (c venues). I started my day at 5:30 am for a tech rehearsal at the theater at 7am. We had 4 hours in the theater (7am-11am) ,for the first time, trying to fit in all aspects of our show. Sound was the most crucial. We have one of the fathers running the sound board and both Paul and I working with instruments that we have never seen. So the fun begins.... Upon arrival we find out that all of the equipment provided for ...

          Woo hoo!!!!!!

This week I hope to try some Monk Fish. Most cook it wrapped in 'Parma Ham' (Prosciutto) so may HAVE to give that a try... so hard but someone has to do it!

          Any hu! Enjoy the 'snow' pics and cross your fingers for me for more...

          ... castle. It was realy enjoyable and funny with the Captain being very quick witted, and with a broad Scots accent he had the crowd in his palm.

          This arvo we took an extended coach tour around Edinburgh and that was excellent too.

          Tomorrow morning weve got to get to Waverley station to pick up the hire car and head off to Huntly, which is about 4 hours north of here.

          Regards to all,

          ... we looked through several souvenir shops before going back to the first (isn't that always the way...) and getting him a Royal Stewart red kilt - he loves it. Everyone on the bus thought it was great and told him to wear it to dinner tonight.

          I got a teddy (hehehe) wearing a kilt and playing bagpipes :) Teddy Family, meet Angus.

          4:30pm now. At our hotel for the next two days - Kings Manor Hotel. About to get ready for the Scottish Dinner Show tonight. Hope it's ...

Once in the cloud the winds picked up and the mist not only dampened our hair but our spirits too. Desperate to make it to the top we kept on going sure that the summit was just around the corner (we could only see 30 metres ahead). Eventually after about an hour in the clouds we reached the top, it was an emotional time and was probably a very similar feeling as what Sir ...
