T-Rex at Tartan Day

T-Rex and Brian went to Tartan Day which is a Celtic Heritage Festival that was held here in Columbia for the first time. They had the typical Highland Games activities such as the Caber Toss and Hammer Throw. There were plenty of Kilts and Bagpipes to be seen.

Brian's favorite were the sheepherding and the duck herding. He had never seen the ducks being herded over bridges and through tubes, and was very impressed with the dogs.

The Hammer Throw, this guy was a little off target and amost Brained one of the contestants competing next to him.

T-Rex's fencing coach (on the right) attends a lot of these things and gives demonstrations as to how the swords (etc) were used in that time period. T-Rex enjoyed watching him perform.

But the highlight for T-Rex had to be the owls. It was too windy to fly them, and the falcons, for their demonstrations, but she got to hold the owl.

Don't you just love the look on her face? I was teasing her and asking if she was going to take falconry lessons next. She replied, "I don't know." gulp. I wouldn't put it past her.
