Ever heard of the Loch Ness monster? Do you believe old Nessy exists? Is it a he or a she? Is he or she good or evil? Even if you are one of those who only believes in what they can see, I hope you will enjoy this little fantasy song. The people and events are real. Arin is my eldest and when she was young, we took a trip to Scotland and this song was written in a train, when all had become a bit much for her.
Some people look forward to being grandpa's. I am not sure I ever expected to be that old, but now that the time has come, I am looking back and my daughter Arin and I are also both looking forward to the new arrival, soon to join us on our journey. She is in fact a girl, I believe. I am glad you are here to share some of these wonderful memories and the excitement with me.
Donna, Arin's mother was an adventurous creature, who among other things, loved to travel. So off we went to the UK, up to Scotland, then across to Bergen in Norway and down through Sweden to Amsterdam in Holland. I look forward to sharing some of the other interesting things that happened, also captured in song, on another occasion. This song and blog however is all about Arin and London and the train trip to Scotland.
It was really a lot of fun. After all, who of us does not enjoy traveling, especially when you are young, even if you do have to sleep in a car some of the time. When you are young you can do that sort of thing. But of course, it can be taxing on a 2 year old.
Sadly, Donna passed away a year or so ago. Our journey is important, because we are all on our way to eternity and there are no return tickets.
Since starting this post, Arin has had her beautiful baby and I will see her for the first time today.
