The chaps have been getting in to the spirit of Burns Night by playing some Scottish jigs on their accordion and bagpipes. I’m glad they’ve got the hang of it now, they were making a terrible racket when they first started practising!
The Domos were delighted today when I suggested a hike up to Loch Humphrey – the lake in the hills above where we are staying. They all wanted to come, and decided they wanted to get dressed up for the occasion – perfect for this week’s 52 Weeks Theme, Dressing Up.
This is Humphrey, a lovely tartan Saussie Dog who lives in the cottage where we are staying near Glasgow. He gave me and Leo a piggyback for ages, we had such fun. And Mr Duck met a new friend called Art, too!
Today was our last day in Scotland. The Domos came with me to Bellahouston Park this morning, to visit the House For An Art Lover. It was designed by famous architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1901 but not built until 1996. They loved the big piano in the Music Room, dancing out a Scottish jig on the ivories:
After absorbing so much culture, we decided to visit another famous Mackintosh location – the Willow Tea Rooms in Sauchiehall Street for some sustenance. As usual, Scotty, Sunny and Tarty were more interested in the delicious apple pie and cream than their surroundings!
Tarty, Scotty and Sunny found this cool bench in Dunnon which appeared to be floating. They were happy to pose for my weekly picture for the current 52 Weeks theme, Repetition.
