The weekend started with a stop at the Alma Scottish Festival - a yearly tradition for my family. There, I purchased the COOLEST wig/hat combo ever:
I look horrible in it. I mean, really bad. And I love it. It's amazing (as long as I don't catch my reflection). I just love the looks on other peoples faces when they see me in it. It's like they just smelled a fart. Best $7 I ever spent.
My dad bought a bag of these. I tried one, and I think I am now set for life. I definitely don't need to eat any more.
We also saw many many bagpipers and drummers, who formed a huge massed band. A smaller group is seen playing here:
From what I understand, the traditional way to wear a kilt is with a backwards cap.
The rest of the weekend was spent in Ludington with family. We took a boat ride to some sand dunes, hiked the beautiful trails of the state park, ate at the best ice cream place ever (House of Flavors), we had a ladder ball tournement, walked out to the lighthouse and so on and so forth. It was super fun.
And this is what the stop and go traffic looked like on the way home. Looks like we weren't the only ones having a great time "up north!"
