August 19th
Bob says good-bye at 5:30 am. He watched the clock all night. His Cab arrives at 6 and he's off to the airport.
We gradually movce into the day again and begin to pack for Scotland. Auntie Margaret arrives at about the same time as Ali Cam and the boys. It's 2:30 before we leave and we have been told it;s a 6 hr drive but we are off, 5 in each car.
It rains most of the drive up, but the countryside is beautiful, stone walls,hills and sheep.
We find the hostel in Dalguise "The Stanely Nairne Centre" having booked the whole place and there is plenty of room here for everyone with far too many rooms and beds to chose from. What a great place! Six showers, huge fridge, freezer and kitchen. Games room with pool table and ping pong. large common room, and outside badmiton and soccer feild. And the veiw is spectactular! We are home for the next few days. Dad has figured this is the 14th bed they have slept in. It's 13 for us! Ciders all around and we are off to bed.
August 20th
In seach of food!
We head back into Perth in search groceries. We find the 24 hr Asda (Walmart) and with two carts of food and a 285 pound bill (570 dollars) we head back to the centre. Really it sounds like a lot of money but when you do the math it's less than 10 dollars per person perday, as there are 10 of us!
Lucklly we have ample room to store everything a rareity in the UK.
Dad cooks us a wonderful meal of roast lamb, mint sauce baby potatoes, peas and yorkshire pudding, We are truly spoiled YUMMY! Becky and Ty do dish dutie and we retire with full belly's. Tommorow Stirling, Edinburgh and the Military Tattoo!
