The Scottish highlands

According to Gary, Ed, and Dave, our Scottish advisors we met at a local pub, these were the cities to visit to see the best of the Scottish highlands, and Scottish history. We were certainly not disappointed.

hi dallas!

i've been following your adventures and living vicatiously though your stories and pictures - it sounds like you've been having an amazing time!

it's such a coincidence that you've been to that resturant we ate at in Montreal... i definitely want to go back, it's one place i visited on my trip that i could've used some more time in. so i may take you up on your offer sometime =)

good luck with all the moving and keep in touch!

gorgeous darling.. !

glad to have you back safe, though it doesn't appear likely there will be a reunion before your montreal departure.

your life is too busy and exciting! i was just talking about you to a friend of mine yesterday actually, because he's looking for a female singer to record with.. don't know if it's possible with your out-of-province status, but i thought you might want the compliment anyways!

xoxo

"dusk on the river ness" and "high waters" are stunning! I really like the last one of the silhouetted dancers, too.

Salut Dallas!

ah, jonquiere feels like it was soo long ago now :)

Anyway, great pictures (....finally remembered your blog address)... & can't wait to see the pics from Paris! I'm itching to get back there and le morvan/burgundy someday soon.

Enjoy your move and the rest of your summer in Montreal. I hope everything starts off well at Concordia for both you and Brian.

keep in touch.
