Haggis Rocks!

Well, you don't have to agree with me. LOL
Yes, I ate haggis at the Scottish Festival.
When the vender suggested I eat my haggis puff with some steak sauce, I only put a dab at the corner. EWWWW.

I like my haggis straight And they make the BEST fish and chips there. Sure it's a bit pricey, but we budgeted for this. I look forward to this every year. This is the third year in a row we've gone.

And I got my airbrush tatoo too.

I took some awesome pics of the caber toss and the weight throwing contest. Can you imagine throwing a metal ball weighing 65 pounds, overhead behind you, up and over a 14 foot height? Yep, that's what they do. Well, try anyway. Tee hee

Did you ever see the bicep width of these guys? Hmmmmm.

OH and did you notice? Under the kilt? Just a regular ol' pair of athletic shorts. *sigh*

Like I said... it's HARD to throw that kind of weight backwards. HOW do they train for THAT?
Whoa.
Is it any wonder these are my favorite things to see?

Okay, what exactly is haggis?

I love watching the caber toss. They look so much like a telephone pole and first time people going to the games look so weirded out. Now, I love pasties, but you can not get me to eat haggis. You are far, far braver than I am. *G*
Kinda disappointing about what's under those kilts, huh? *G* Still, it's cool watching them heft that weight over their shoulders! *G*
Glad you had a good time!
