Bob and Dion for playing in Weed at the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden on Nov.

Great showing over the whole arena. It was greatly appreciated by all of the Veterans I talked to.

If I missed any event or person, please let me know. It wasn’t on purpose.

One more event on Friday Nov 17 at Simpson Univ. for the 1st year celebration of the opening of their Veteran’s center.

Correction

Well, the buses did not run today. We were not able to go into Elgin and the Abbey.

Took a beautiful walk down the Spey river to Cregallochie and visited our old friend Joe at the Fiddich Inn. Joe celebrated his 88th birthday yesterday. What a pleasure to see our old friend.

Our Last Free Day in Scotland

Hard to believe this is our last free day in Scotland. Tomorrow, we leave Aberlour to head back to Glasgow.

Today, we plan to visit the Abbey outside of Elgin. Pluscarden Abbey is centries old, and still an active Catholic Benedictine monastary. It is the only midevil monastary in the UK still being used for it’s original purpose.

1 of 2 posts missed.

Inverray was a stormy time, but beautiful area. We were able to meet the Duke of Argyll. visited with Stuart and Sabina and had a great BBQ.
