The total trip along the Sunrise Trail, and return to Harbor Light Campground was a total of 208 kilometers (129 miles).
The first Antigonish Highland Games was in 1863. Its location was in a park with most activities in a track infield, with a few vendors on the perimeter. There were no food vendors with Scottish food, so we ended up with fish and chips. The Sheaf Toss was interesting because of the equipment they used to raise the pole. The dancing competition was in a band shell. They had the Caber Toss. There were Drum Lines and Pipe Bands Practicing. Then the bands had to compete. The Farmers’ walk was a competition that we had never seen in Highland Games in the USA. The contestants had to walk 100 feet carrying two pieces of “farm” equipment weighing 200 lbs each (that is a total of 400 pounds). After the farmers’ walk, they had a final “tug of war” competition.
We made it back to the house for 5:00 Sunday Cocktails, so all was well for today.
Hugs, and Type at You Later!
