We had an extremely successful February cruise to the Caribbean, and everyone just loved the fact that it was a fourteen night cruise, and we also missed a huge snow storm !

We have no other group tour plans for this year, but we are in the final stages of completing the arrangements for next February’s cruise, and I can tell you that while the gentlemen always look terrific in the kilt, I am just dying to see the ladies wearing their grass skirts ! Three guesses where we will be off to, and I’m sure you will get it right first time !! We will send out the detailed information when
all has been finalized.


The photo album has been updated to include the February cruise, so have a look.

As far as other dates are concerned, I’m back at the Fergus Highland Games on August 10th to M.C. the tattoo for the 20th year. It’s been my pleasure to be involved in the tattoo since it’s inception. The Fergus weekend of August 10-12th is one of the highlights in the summer tourist calendar in Ontario.

Thanks for listening!
