We just got back from the Stone Mountain Highland Games. I particularly enjoy going to Highland Games because my high school was called the Headland Highlanders and we dressed in highland clothing and had bagpipes in our marching band. Today, we enjoyed hearing bagpipers,saw athletic competitions, and wandered around the clan tents.
After the Parade of Tartans we went to eat. Let’s see…should I have sheep brains or fried fish and chips? It wasn’t a hard choice. After lunch, we walked along the tree-lined paths to see the clan tents and the vendor tents. Today in attendance was my brother, sister-in-law, niece, and mother. My nephew was also there with a friend but had scooted off to parts unknown at this point. There are either ancestor ghostly orbs or water drops on this photo. Not sure which. What do you think? Any Ghostbusters out there? Ha! We made a quick trip to the Kerr hospitality tent. Super friendly folks. The family motto is Sero Sed Serio which means “Late but in Earnest.” Gotta love it!
I loved this clan tent with the faux castle.
I wish I could have gotten a better picture of the field of tartans. I couldn’t get far enough back to get them all in but this will have to do. The tartans were very beautiful as they fluttered in the breeze.
We went to the fields and watched the heavy athletic competitions and then, sadly it was time for the official closing ceremonies, but we’ll be back next year.
