Scottish Beach Party!

Though it's far too cold to actually don a bathing suit, this past weekend, we had a little beach barbecue just outside Edinburgh at Tyninghame. We brought a miniature, disposable, fairtrade barbecue in a box (did you know they make those?) to cook sausages and roast marshmallows. And of course, I continued my education about things that actually live in nature. 

We drank cider, but wished we'd brought a bottle opener (or ANY utensils, for that matter) when we hurt ourselves trying to get the things open. Charlie, one of Scotland's leading environmentalists, may have gone for a long run in his boxers and crashed a wedding up the beach (or maybe he just ran around the other side of the rock and sat down for a bit.) The highlight of the day was our spontaneous gymnastics competition. I won points for my cartwheels and round offs. 

But the main event was clearly the family showdown between Torcuil & Iona in the most challenging of all feats: the headstand. There was some debate about who actually did the better headstand, and to be honest, I still can't decide. 

So I put it up to you, dear readers. Who had the better headstand? I can see a few things-- I mean,  Torcuil's overall posture is straighter, but he clearly hasn't learned to point those toes or keep his legs straight. He is, however, 6 feet tall. Iona has great point, but is bent at the hips. What do you think?

  1. Definitely Iona, Torcuil's upside down plie is impressive but Iona's posture is the best


Why Stop Now?
