Links in Scotland

It wasn't the Old Course at St Andrews, but we can say we golfed in Scotland. I love being able to spend time with my Dad doing something we both enjoy. I wish I were a bit more competitive for him but he doesn't seem to mind. With my few extra hours during the day this Fall, I should be improving my golf game.
The golf course in Edinburgh, Braid Hills, was interesting. Most courses in Ireland and Scotland are walking, there aren't any golf carts, this was one of them. And I can see why, there would be no way a golf cart could navigate this path.

And hills, oh my. We really got a workout on this course.
And some great views
Thanks Dad

Explore Dream Discover

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~Mark Twain

I am constantly thinking about things to do. All of my kids will be in school this Fall. And while I won't have loads more time for myself, there will be a few more hours in the day I would like to occupy with something new. Maybe college courses, piano lessons, volunteer work, creating a family travel website, are just a few ideas. What are some of things you look forward to doing or starting when the time is right?

Good Candy, Fun Name

I have so many travel blogs to write and pictures to post but even the thought of it is exhausting so instead I bring you these: Curly Wurly They are reminiscent of the Marathon bar from long ago but without the waxy chocolate. This chocolate is creamy and with the caramel is very, very yummy. I don't know if these are available in the States but if you see one, try it. If you can't find them and think you might need one, let me know.
