BUCKET LIST........ Scotland

A new country, all alone, and with time on my hands
Yes.......this kind of JOY!

Scotland, I love you!
It's aabout seizing the moment and giving pleasure the often can one do that? Without guilt?
I found this country to be everything I imagined and so much more, it fed my soul. The architecture.......
The music..........
The tartan, everywhere, even here, in a taxi
The daily rainbows matched my mood, the sheer joy of making a dream come true

Have to love a monogramed rain gutter, well perhaps if you are a King, one has that privilege. King George V, to be specific

The dark rugged stone matches the moody weather

See what I mean.......rainbows..........
A day of sheer freedom, to me that is, was taking the time to rent a car for the day and heading to the countryside, to get lost, and being ok with that, well with a sophisticated GPS, one can easily take the back roads
Trees draped in "velvet", a magical place indeed
Given the chance, would you be comfortable with "getting lost?"
Leaving yourself open to new sights, smells, sounds, the whole bit, fosters creativity and calms the mind enough to allow inspiration in. No phone calls, demands, or deadlines

I loved the fence AND the stone wall, the colors.........

    Gotta run and monogram my gutters!

  2. One of the place on my list, too. Just gorgeous pictures, thanks for sharing!

  3. Debra,
    I have longed to visit Scotland, this will have to hold me for now. What beautiful vistas and how fun to rent a car and get "lost" on the back roads of such a wonderful destination. I've also heard the people are amazingly friendly.
    It sounds like your fall has been filled with great travel.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! Would love to be there right this very minute!!

  5. Sounds wonderful! Love that picture of the cute!

  6. I loved Scotland, such a beautiful country and beautiful people! Your photographs are really good, too. They capture the spirit of the place so well.

  7. This is one country I've never visited, your post makes me think I should just "book a ticket and go."

  8. There is no place like the bonnie highlands of Scotland. My family is from there and I was lucky enough to attend the Glasgow School of Art after high school. It is a magical place and I go back as often as possible.

  9. Loved your post—beautiful! Now I need to travel.
