July 29-30, 2017 Seattle Scottish Highland Games and
FB Outlander Fanatics of Washington Gathering.
We have been going to the Seattle Highland Games (off and on) since the mid-late 90's... Our first trip was with the kids in about 93-95, we tented on the North side in the field. It was hot but we enjoyed ourselves a lot.
The music, the dancing, the games, the sights and sounds of it all was very thrilling. My BH and I had lived in England in 1973-1976 and drove up to Scotland several times. BH's grandfather had immigrated from Scotland and so the culture was vivid in our family.
Last year, I took the Beast (1990 Ford Econoline Okanagan Conversion Van) and camped on the South Side... Loads of room. This year, I decided to take Lillie and I don't regret it. We set up camp, I brought a canopy that I knew I could set up by my self... The sounds of the games & music flooded the entire area.... AWESOME.
Here's Lillie in her campspot setup...
I got to meet up with my Outlander FaceBook group where they had a booth decorated and promoting Diana Gabaldon's Book & the Starz Series of Outlander. We had just finished watching season 2 these past few months. OFOWA group had large cutouts of Jamie & Claire and a nice table display. They had a scavanger hunt each day and a prize basket for the winning drawing. I donated two Outlander Charm bracelets that I had made for them.
I had my "Little Piece of Heaven" in a campspot to go to when I needed a break from all the walking around and Highland Fun. It was a totally Fun weekend.
Of Course.... I MUST have Flamingo & Flowers...

The Outlandish Display Table... Loved it.
The Ladies of the Booth were friendly and fun to meet. Our FB page creator Wendy, was there all day with her accomplices. We gathered at 2:30ish for a group picture of FB members... there were over 32 members there and included in the group pic... several gals missed the photo-op, so I think we had a good representation of Outlander Fans.
Loved the Weekend... <3 Suzy
