The Scottish Border

27 April 2011

Looking at the map I realized just how close we were to the Scottish border. There was no way we were not going to take a trip across the border and explore a little of Scotland. I have always loved the bagpipes since I was a wee lass. My mom had always dreamed of going to Scotland. This was a dream come true on some many levels. As we drove up a hill on a deserted winding country road we saw it. Scotland. I was shaking with excitement and tears began to call. A lone bagpiper crossed the road and began to play. I called my mom back in Canada. There was no answer so I had to settle for leaving a message. "Mama…the pipes…he is playing the pipes. We are crossing the border and going to explore Scotland."

It was the perfect way to enter Scotland and it lived up to all of my dreams.
