Well folks I know I said that I would post National Day Parade comments tomorrow, but can’t wait. We set out from the chalet in the rain paraded down to the bus giving the locals a taste of the Scottish Pipe music. No long walk to the village this year thanks to our bus drivers Nigel & Phil for taking us up. The boys enjoyed some local hospitality in free sausages which they cooked at the open fire. During the wait for the start of the local festivities the pipes & drums of our small band entertained the waiting crowd.
During the local dignitaries speech he once again welcomed Adelboden’s friends from Scotland 1st Viewpark Boys Brigade and thanked us for our kind donation to a local charity and wished us a enjoyable stay and a quick return in two years. Once the local entertainment was complete we joined the local parade and led the rest of the world in the parade. Parade over we headed up the long winding road to the chalet and hot chocolate and stories of the day.
