Old Westbury Gardens Annual Scottish Games

The Scotts sure knows how to throw a party. August was Scottish Games at Old Westbury, there was Caber TossPutting The Stone, and Tossing The Sheaf, yes I know, I too had no clue what either of those activity were, had to Google each. Shot put which I am aware of is similar to Putting the Stone.

The clear winner for me was the Caber tossing, never knew it could be done until I saw it with my own eyes, both male and female attempt the tossing of the taper telephone pole tall log, and the contestants did it with such gusto.



Not to be out done the flowers at Old Westbury were beautiful

Adventures First Half of 2017

Early March 2017

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

NYC tour





Empire state building.






The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum




When in NYC shopping is not far from my mind, so I visited LV and got myself a present.




Later in March my BFF and I dance to Uncle Charlie in concert.





Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
