    Robert, leaving aside the significance of the Quaich for a minute, can I just say that this photograph is beautifully composed.

    Great pics Robert. Such an excellent welcome for the quaich, all the way from Victoria BC via Japan and Tasmania and now in the beautiful French Alps.

    May I have the Lady's work table, please?

    I'm looking forward to seeing some Alpine snow in the Quaich.

    Chrystel is on holidays for a few more days, so you will have to wait to see the quaich on the working table. Here are a few with the Saltire !

    A simple Quaich Story...

    Here I was, alone with our Quaich, for Chrystel is taking a week off...







    Having successfully recorded three new titles in one day instead of two as initially planned, I had this extra day...

    I therefore decided to jump in my car and drive the Quaich to where Chrystel was with her fiends and the bairns.

    Here is Chystel with her friends, not expecting me at all !






    The girls were hanging out in the garden... a typical summer's day...






    Chrystel was helping out a friend with his brand new kilt, explaining how not to pin down the upper apron with the kilt pin...






    A fire was made from dry vine stock for the B-B-Q, and all was peaceful...







    Suddenly a sound came from down the road ! Louise jumped and looked at her mother, shocked in surprise, questioning her with her eyes ! “Yes, that IS your father ! ...







    The family was reunited for a day !






    ...reunited around the Quaich !






    More to come...


    Best,

    Robert
