    1. that top is one of my faves! And the highland games here are great fun! Seeing we don’t have those wonderful sites like you over yonder, Victoria BC carries many old traditions from her forbears and the days of the old Queen- like high tea at the Empress Hotel! Thanks so much my friend!

    1. thanks so much Linda- btw I read your link you gave me and I have to tell you that I have heard that story of the nephites etc. very interesting which of course remind me of the lost tribes idea. Did you read my latest One four challenge Mayan post? Fiction of course but I find them so fascinating and have done a fair bit of reading as well as exploring!

      1. Glad you were able to check it out. Yep, the lost tribes are a whole ‘nother interesting story! Do you remember where you heard about the Nephites?
        I don’t know how I missed it but I went back and caught your previous post with One four. Fascinating story! You should write a book! 😀 ❤
