Watery Wednesday in May

A bit of a preview, I hope, of a Mothers Day beach walk with my son and his girlfriend and dog. My aim was to gather large stones for one of my constant landscaping projects. We put stone high on the beach and marked it, then came back later by boat to pick it up and take it back to his truck.

 

Since playing Laura Smith's wonderful version of My Bonnie, and Alan saying "I think I prefer "My Bonny" song by a traditional Scottish folk group", I am on a mission to hear a version like that.  Youtube offers only children's versions which is how I learned of the song but not by a Scottish group that I have found.  Here's one by a British band though:

 

 

 Another one that sounds English to me:

I don't suppose Mitch Miller is Scottish?
Mary MacADNski: Ha ha ha!
Such lovely colors! I'll look forward to our walk!
I'd never heard either of those versions before! I like the Laura Wright...

The stone will certainly add colour, Mary
Doesn't anybody mind you taking rocks off the beach Mary?
Mary MacADNski: Not unless it is in the National Park.

A rather elegant composition here, Mary.
I watched an interesting programme on television about the history of American folk music. There were some great clips and songs by the Carter Family.
Mary MacADNski: A am a folkie at heart.
I'm just amazed, as always, at just how red the stone is round your way. You obviously haven't got beach wardens to stop you taking the stones away.
Mary MacADNski: We cannot remove it from the National Park or take too much elsewhere.

Lovely colours - you are lucky you can get some of it to take to your garden.
Mary MacADNski: I need the beach at home...
you framed this perfectly between the rocks on one shore the high hill on the other... and you have many friends just across that ocean Mary....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I hope to meet everyone. I often think we could facetime if you have the I-products.
