We headed for Scotland on July 4th, 2017, after months of anticipation and preparation. Very fittingly, we flew on a Boeing 747, which my dad had been a part of building starting in 1967, which brought my family out from Atlanta, Georgia to Seattle, Washington. We stayed near the airport that night and met the CCNA Tour Group the next morning in the Galsgow Airport, where wegot on our bus and were on our way. First stop was the legendary Loch Lomond! "Oh, on the bonnie, bonnie shores of Loch Lomand," was brought to mind as the mist kissed the hills above the lake, and a bright sunlight shown through the clouds. A lone swan and several ducks were getting their morning snacks near the shore, as we strolled along the pebbled sandy beach. Cottages with charming flower pots flanking colorful doors, framed in iron hardware were available for a rural Scottish getaway!
