Do I Hear Bagpipes?????

Home from the beach and it was wonderful...we had beautiful weather...one evening there was a thunderstorm, but I loved it...I love to watch lightning storms at the beach. Mom thinks I'm a bit nuts!

We were sitting on the porch reading, waiting to go down to the beach to watch the sunset and I started hearing bagpipes...yes, bagpipes. I really thought I was hearing things, but then other people were saying "Did I just hear bagpipes?"...grabbed my trusty camera and went down to the beach...there he was...he played one song after another...the sun was going down...people were requesting songs and the sun was falling fast...until it melted right into the Gulf of Mexico.

Here's mom...enjoying the beach...now those of you that have been reading my blog for a while will remember that this is just like her picture from last year....different book. She hates having her picture taken so this is the best I could do.

I'll be back to tell you about the books I read...there were some really good ones!

I just got back from the beach, too, but we didn't have anything as awesome as a bagpiper! How fun.

Glad you had a good time at the beach. I also love watching thunderstorms! The bagpiper provided entertainment too, I love it! Looking forward to hearing which books you read while at the beach.

A delightful ending to "the perfect day", huh? Beach time is looking just wonderful. What's Mom reading?

Oh my gosh a bagpiper on the beach - it just doesn't get any better than that! I got chills just reading about it!
I'm with your mom - I wouldn't want my pic taken in my bathing suit either, lol. Bless her heart!

Bagpipes at the beach? I would have had to follow the sounds too. How nice of him to provide a free concert experience.

what a wonderful treat-bagpipes at sunset! Glad you had a fun time. I feel the same as your mom about beach photos of me- No.
