scotland--day two

Yesterday we explored the magnificence of the mind of man at the Falkirk Wheel. Today we spent hours surrounded by the majesty of God's creation.

We packed coolers with food and loaded up into the vans to head towards Loch Ness to find Nessie!!

Our dinner guest--A Highland Cow

It was a gorgeous drive! We were surrounded by mountains and lochs for the 3 hour drive. We stopped and had a picnic for lunch and dinner. Pictures do not do the beauty justice!!!
The picture above is of Loch Ness. Even with Emma calling Nessie's name, we never saw her. Emma is sure she saw Nessie's trail as she swam around the Loch.

Emma calling for Nessie--OVER AND OVER AND OVER!!!

On the way home, Steve, Michaela, and I (Emma was in the Ostrowski's van) stopped to enjoy some scenery. While we were pulled over this lovely deer was eating the grass. We were no more than 3 feet away from him.
