The Scottish Highland Games at Stone Mountain, GA.

 Hello Sweet Friends,


I wanted to share with you an event that my
husband an I have attended for the last 5 years
now.
Both my husband and myself come from Scottish
decent. We love to visit the highland Games when they come to the beautiful Stone Montain
Park, out side of Atlanta.
this year was the Highland Games 40th. anniversary at  Stone Mountain Park!
  This is the famous Stone Mountain. there is a beautiful carving on the side of Robert E. Lee and General Sherman.



 While you stroll through the many Clan booths and wares people are selling, you can find a booth where you can purchase a beautiful costume. I love this picture so much of the elderly lady adjusting the beautiful costume
for the young lady, as the mother looks on!
















 I always have to stop by my clans booth to visit this lovely couple. The husband is a Mac Dougall, My maiden name is McDowell and so we come from the same cThe bagpipes always sound wonderful to me. At the end of the show, the bands come out on the parade ground and start playing. There are always awards for the days performances, highland games, dances and best pipers.

We had a wonderful day and can't wait till
next year!!


















This is a picture of me...My dear friend Cindy had given me some Dragonfly earrings recently
and wanted a picture of me wearing them.
















Wishing you All a Blessed day!!

Love to you All

Susan
