Scottish Games and Festival - Woodlands, CA.


We are in Antioch, California for a week at the Antioch Fairgrounds.  We will visit San Francisco again from here as well as Sacramento, Vallejo, and Pittsburg, Ca.  Saturday we drove to Citrus Heights and visited one of Debbie's former co-workers, Peggy Reid. Peggy was born in Scotland and goes back every year, so she was all for accompanying us to the Scottish Games.  We saw the opening ceremonies, the judging of the drum majors, saw highland dancers and listened to Scottish music and bagpipes.  We also saw some of the games, such as the caber toss, weight over bar, hammer throw and other sports.  It was a great day.  Please see some of the movies I took.
