I know the 4th of July was almost a week ago but since this blog is a record of our experiences here in Scotland, I’m going to post a few pics and memories.
We had a great group of friends over. Our cookout was nearly defeated by British weather but in true rebel fashion, we decided to forge on and have a cookout in our living room. Burgers, hot dogs, slaw, baked beans, strawberry rhubarb pie, and gooey butter cake ensured we all got a taste of home.
Scotty flew a couple American flags from the balcony! Not sure what our neighbors thought of that – we’re already the weirdos who actually spend time sitting out there.
All in all, the 12 of us (Americans and of our neighbors from the north) had a fun time reminiscing about 4ths spent in America, favorite American foods, pastimes and other good memories. We even got a bit of a personal freedoms lecture from one of the Canadians! The irony was classic.
