Nathan's and my 1978 Scotland Adventure

They say that the beginning is always a good place to start, but deciding what is the beginning can be quite a trick. Nathan had been talking about going to Scotland for a long time. But we started talking in ernest sometime after I got to Seattle. In 1978 we made the decision to go. Nathan came up to Seattle in late-May, we did some galavanting around here and up on the San Juan islands and then caught a plane to London. The day we left Seattle, in fact as we were getting ready to leave the house, a barn swallow swooped in through the front door and did a few turns around the living room. I was thinking "How in the world are we ever going to get this bird out of here." But almost as quickly as he came in he headed back out again. I took this as a good sign.
