Inspiration and a festival coming

I can’t begin to tell you that my energy level and enthusiasm are taking flight with the good weather. Goodbye SAD syndrome for now!! I’m even out in the garden!!

The old Manor

Another walk through the grounds at Craigflower Manor which is now the home of the Victoria Highland Games Association. Celtic music, Irish and Scottish, Highland dancing, crafts and caber toss, plus the battle of the pipe bands from all over Canada will be at Topaz Park this weekend.

Many an intrepid Scot explored and settled in BC giving many places their names. It’s pretty obvious when you see the turn out of kilts at this event.  Can’t wait!  I’m sure I will feel homesick for Scotland and Ireland!!
