Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week 41 Scotland

Xui is on business in Aberdeen and Roland Poland heads north to the Moray Firth to visit his two cousins (through a friend of his father's), Heidi and Lottie, who stay at Redmoss.  He is joyful at being reunited with some of his family and being introduced to Finn, Whitney and Jeffrey.

He has a great weekend enjoying the outdoor pursuits and is sad to leave.

He writes to Malcolm,
Hi Malcolm,
Been to Redmoss to see Heidi and Lottie.
Great girls - they say Hi by the way.
Seen the dolphins and seals on the beach and I can
tell you the water is freezing.
No wonder Jeff and Whitney always wear thick woolly coats.
Finn is OK, but a wuss - a bit of a mammy's boy like you.
Got to go - rabbiting again.

Here are the pages we made in his travel book.

Robert Burns, the poet, the glorious scenery and the Moray Firth dolphins all feature together with traditional Scottish dancing and bagpipes.

The postcard uses a stamp by Stewart Gill together with a background of sponged inks.

Thanks for visiting and I do hope you enjoyed this rather long post.  Please do go and see what our other
travellers have been up to. (link in sidebar)
