Each of the forty-nine members of our WDAV tour group wishes you a wonderful day from bonny Scotland, and it’s great to be able to report that everyone made it here (though not without some adventure in the Philadelphia airport) and everyone seems to be in good health and even better spirits.
Because of weather problems in Philly the day we departed, some of the people who were meeting us there and flying on to Scotland with the group almost didn’t …
After months of planning and anticipation, forty-nine hearty (and hopefully hardy) travelers are on the way to “The Land of the Mountain and the Flood,” to Scotland, as WDAV sponsors its ten-day journey to that wonderful land.
Most of the group departed from Charlotte, of course, but three of the travelers joined the main contingent in Philadelphia. They’re family members of Grant and Caroline Sharp (members of WDAV’s Gladys and Rom Sparks Society), and they came to Philadelphia from Albany, NY, and Atlanta. Once the whole group had gathered in Philly, it was on to Glasgow, where we were to be met by our tour gurus, Luther and Marilyn Wade.
