Catching up from St. Andrews

We have been very busy, but un-connected to the Internet from several stops along the way.  Sorry for the skipping…it’s not up the standard set by our friends, Blair & Dennis, for sure.

The excitement of the engagement is still with us and we were treated to a champagne toast the next night at dinner…by our two Scottish guides – Alistair McDermott and Ronnie Berri.  They are special friends now and would be excellent for anyone as “experts” in Scotland and all of its facets.

The locals can’t believe this weather (sunny and 70’s).  It had been raining and in the 40’s for 3 weeks before we arrived.

The scenery is breathtaking each mile and we have spent the last two days traversing the Highlands from Fort William to Inverness – hikes in wilderness areas, along seashore beaches (wait ’til you see Pebble Beach), excellent cuisine (even the lunches are treats for the palate and the atmosphere, too) and lots of history of this region back into the 1300’s.

We have just arrived to a three day stay in St. Andrews (the University goes back to 1500 or so) and golfing on Friday at the Jubilee Course there, right alongside “The Old Course” overlooking the North Sea.

Thanks for following us and for the delay in my reporting.
