This was an ABCA Conference in April 2011

Edinburgh Scotland (here is the National Anthum-click pause when required)

 

Above you see the map of Scotland and a little of England and to the west you see Ireland.

We arrived on the 1st of April-no joke.

When you see this means that there is a video

We immediately left on Saturday for Glasgow to see Mamma Mia (yes, again!).

On Sunday we did some visiting, well, I went up to Arthur's Seat as I did not have the opportunity last time. George and I challenged the hill while Linda and Sharon went wandering around.

Sunday night Sharon and I had a "meet and greet" at the Edinburgh Castle. It was an event, spectacular as could be expected.

or if you do not have access to the video player, click here for a pictorial review (less the music)

Do not forget to pause the Scottish National Anthum.

I still had conferences to attend and that left Sharon and George with Lynda to visit a little. At night we went back to the Castle and I took this night shot
