After lunch on Friday, we took in some light entertainment in the form of "Spinning Yarns", a mixture of singing, fiddling and storytelling based upon a young man's experiences growing up in Newfoundland.
INSIDE THE MAIN CASTLE GATE HERITAGE TENT
We expected to meet our cousin Lloyd Ross at the Heritage Tent, but our paths just never crossed. His friends, Donna and Donald McAlpine, managed to catch up with us at the Highland Games in Blairgowrie, Scotland, to express Lloyd's regrets.
We did see a few of the workshops, demonstrations, displays and lectures ... including the Northumbrian pipes and spinning pictured above.
SLEEMAN'S HIGHLAND PUB "SEVEN NATIONS"
Before our departure on Saturday (to tend to CAT back home), we visited the Highland Pub to listen to songs by the famed "Seven Nations" group.
