Boxing Day Geese

These beautiful geese were seen and heard over Scolty today . The climb was tough and the descent worse but somehow they made it all worth while .

Black Kilts Pipes and Drums .











'Europe', that source of much political muttering is also a rather wonderful place.
Within the land mass of so many countries one finds an admiration and appreciation for 'foriegn ' cultures, especially in the world of music and dance . Yesterday at The Berlin English Church Christmas bazar ,this group were performing Scottish pipe and drums music . The lighting is poor due to my cam but never the less , enjoy.
All the musicians are German . The link to their website is:-

Not Quite A Wandering Minstrel.

Whilst out and about on Friday I saw and heard several street musicians .Usually it's the accordion players who get me dancing . However this well known guitar player ( sure, he travels Europe) kept appearing at each station . Here in Mohrenstrasse U Bahn the marble made for great acoustics .My singing is not quite Ella F but hey who cares ?
