We really didn’t think it would be so wet! The sky kept showing promising patches of light grey during the afternoon. We had our waterproof jackets, but we really should have bought ponchos to go over the top! Well we didn’t, so by the time an hour had passed of sitting in the drizzle, our jeans, bags, shoes and socks were soaked. Oh well, as the Brits would say. Nothing was going to stop the show and it was fabulous.
I tried to take half decent pics, but it was slippery and the iPad wasn’t cooperating! I was starting to think we’d have a better time relaxing at home watching on the tele. But then the bagpipes started, and the drums, the kilts and sporrans were swaying and I was happy.
There were bands from the USA, New Zealand, Switzerland, Mexico and Peru (I think), as well as massed pipes and drums. Highland dancers and a modern Scottish group. They packed a lot into 90 minutes, it was a very well oiled production, so glad we finally enjoyed it live, rain and all!
