Scotland Wrap-Up

Hello dear readers! I'm home from Scotland and excited to share a few more photos from my trip. Again, I was visiting my father, who lives in the Northeast near Aberdeen. I was able to get down to the west coast for a bit, but mainly stayed in the northern village of Gardenstown and surrounding areas. I hope May finished up well for all of you! Cheers - Sarah
