An afternoon at the Northeast Florida Scottish Games

We went to the Northeast Florida Scottish Games & Festival at the Clay County Fairgrounds in Green Cove Springs today even though it threatened rain. (Aren't we the adventuresome couple?)

We took a small jaunt down a road that ran straight to the river before we traveled on. Here are a few pictures from there.

One hurricane too many


The highlight of the day for the men (and my man in particular) was the games. Here are highlights of some of the action. This was a test in pure brute strength.

And this brings me to my favorite part of the fair. Men in Kilts. Who knew they would be dead-sexy? No one ever told me.

The women dressed up too, but not sure as what.


I love this guy. He plays on the front porch of the Cracker Barrel we go to. Here he did Celtic music, but at Cracker Barrel, he is does good ole country.

I feel like I was there

eek. I love boys in kilts too! That one was gross though... men don't wear mini-kilts. I like how they posed for you.
And the river pics were great. Oh.. i told R that "Those guys are throwing those telephone polls" and he said "Cabers". He knows the word. And he wore a kilt. 2 reasons i married him.

@barefootnikki, I remember his kilt picture...he was darling!!!

Why were they all in kilts? Was it some Scottish day commemoration or something?

Simply loved it Annie. I do have photoblog and post my pics in aminus3.

@hillgrandmom, yes, it was a Scottish Fair.

@priya, Thanks! I took a look at aminus3. It looks wonderful, but I couldn't find you. Do you host your images there from Lens N Eyes?
