Scottish Highland Games - Vista, CA - June 26, 2010

We went to the Scottish Highland Games and Gathering of the Clans on Saturday. It was a lot of fun, but very difficult to get any good pictures. We did get to sample some meat pies, and listen to Scottish and Celtic music. There was a piping and drumming competition, heavy athletics (throwing the hammer and stones, tossing the caber, etc), some Scottish dancing, and our favorite to watch, the sheep dog trials.

The San Diego Triumph Club had a few cars lined up in one corner, including these 4 beautifully restored TR-3's.

The only decent picture I could get of a bagpiper was this one at the dance competition. It's hardly creative, being centered like that, but it will have to do. At least one shot in this post will have a Scottish look. As for shots of the dancers, operator error on my part pretty much made everything there unusable.

The sheep dog trials were fun to watch. The dogs were great, and sheep looked almost crazed.
