queen's diamond jubilee weekend

It's the Queen's Diamond Jubilee weekend, celebrating her 60-year reign and everyone's out and about. The small Scottish towns we drove through today had flags flying on their main streets and quite a few townhouses in our Aberdeen neighborhood have red, white & blue decorations. We're watching the Thames River Pageant on television and I must say, I'm glad we're not in London this weekend; it's pouring on the royal family's barge!

Flags in Aberdeen on Union Street.

Today is also Aberdeen's International Street Fair. B and I made a stop and scarfed down a bratwurst and some Spanish paella. We love that the street is lined with so many interesting stands. This month's street fair featured Dutch flowers, homemade garden furniture and jewelry, a cheese and olive stand, sausage stands, French crepes, and more.
