Southern Californians, How much do you love our beaches? the beautiful pacific? Our beloved dolphins and whales ?  How can you and I support  and protect what we love and enjoy so much?  Well, a viewing of a documentary “The Transparentsea Voyage” has a final showing in San Diego  August 23rd & 24th will definitely guide you in the right direction.

Following the marine mammals that traverse our seas and communicate through sound & song, The Transparentsea Voyage takes the viewer on a sensory journey behind the making of 23 songs in 23 days all while exploring by sea and land, one of the most populated coastlines in the world, Southern California…

The Transparentsea Voyage highlights the efforts of a group of athletes, musicians, celebrities and artists on a campaign aimed at focusing attention on coastal environmental issues. Witness the trip unfold through the creation of song as this “behind the music” look at focused activism offers an insight into how a deeper connection to our planet changed and educated the participants involved as well as those that followed the journey from around the world.

Red, White and Blue

These patriotic colors can inspire wonderful interiors

light and airyWe love the crisp white, against the textured sisal rug complimented with our Americana inspired colors.

Achieve a dressier look for the color palette, by adding accents of black and a symmetrical layout. We think the hounds tooth rug works well in this  space.

Scottish Highland

June 22 & 23,  2013         9:00 – 5:00       Brengle Terrace Park ,                Vista CA

san diego scottish highland games

When celebrating in times of peace one of the Highlanders’ favorite pastimes was    the tainchel. For these “great hunts” very often several clans would combine. Chieftains    would send word to the clansmen that such an event was planned and when and where    they should assemble.

After a successful hunt a great feast and celebration would be held. Then the rival    clansmen would test each other’s prowess at various sports – running, jumping, wrestling,  or primitive forms of weight putting with stones, or divided into roughly equal sides  vying against each other in a very early form of camanachd or shinty. Lastly the    clansmen would vie with each other in piping and in dancing, the pipers taking it    in turns to demonstrate their skills and the clansmen to demonstrate their agility    and neatness of movement by dancing complicated steps to the pipe music. These relaxations   were in effect the forerunners of the modern Highland games.

Great family fun come out and see for yourself
