Here are a few photos from a trip we took last week.
We headed west, to Glasgow, to visit the Museum of Transport in it's new home by the river.
Trains, trams, buses, motorbikes, boats, more trains, more cars......
It really is a little boy's dream day out.
Alasdair recognised Postman Pat's van, even with the old style livery....
....and the other boys recognised Professor Z, one of the baddies from Cars 2 (which we also saw last week - excellent film, by the way!)
I liked the sense of humour whoever set up this display of a South African steam train had...
But it's not just transport in the new museum.
There were a few fabulous dresses from the 50s on display.
And to top things off, there was a display of some old toys.
I don't imagine that big Stormtrooper above ever belonged to anyone, but I had the dark haired Sindy doll in the photo below, only my one had a pink tutu.
Back in the days when I loved my Sindys, I loathed all things Star Wars.
I didn't imagine then, that one day my life would be full of all things Star Wars!
Gaelic word of the day:
deideag (jay-jag) - toy
there should be a grave accent on the e, but it's not playing ball tonight, ironically!
