Auchindrain Update

Ceilidh dancing, Open fires and Spinning at the Open Day

A real barn dance!! Music by Myles, an amazingly talented accordion player. I called the dances and we had an excellent time reminding the Scots and teaching the French some Reels, 2-steps and Strip the Willow. Based in our Dining room of Stoners Barn we danced and chatted, laughed and relaxed after several days of hard work.

We toasted potatoes, sausages and marshmallows over an open fire. Mixed results on the food quality and a few sausages fed the fire. Fortunately we had all brought a little something to share and nobody went without.

During the day we had lots of visitors coming to see both the results of the Dig and the demonstrations on site. I was spinning and had lots of fun teaching both on the wheel and with the drop spindle. A great day with lovely people, informative demonstrations and the food was pretty good too.
Today we are on the Halfway mark of our camp and I am looking forward to seeing what we will get up too next.

Until then Bx
