A Quick Word about the Bunessan Show!

It would be impossible to talk about the last week without adding in a brief word about the Bunessan show on Saturday. The sun was shining on the white tents strewn about the fields surrounding the Bunessan Primary School, and everyone was in good spirits as they milled around eating cake, looking at the livestock and horseriding, watching duck herding, perusing the craft stalls, listening to the Mull Pipe and Drum Band, and watching the men compete in the tossing of the sheaf. Camas made a fair number of entries to the show this year, but while we spent the day congratulating some of our friends for winning awards for carrots, scones, and lemon curd cakes we sadly didn't have any awards of our own to celebrate this year. Oh well, next year's entries planning will commence ASAP, so watch out 2012 Bunessan Show!
The day capped off with an AMAZING ceilidh in the Bunessan village hall, so we all put on our dancing shoes and literally danced till we dropped about 1:45am. Needless to say, it was a LONG walk down the track in the dark at 2am, but well worth the amazing day that was had by all.
