The Crathes Vintage Car Rally was here again on Sunday, and it was an absolutely beautiful day. As usual the cars drove up, parked around the roundabout and Residents in the Home were mostly sitting out in chairs in the gorgeous sunshine, watching as the cars came up, and then after a period of time, watching them drive round the roundabout and away again.
I went over and spoke to a number of my friends among the Residents, and later Daddy took me round and we inspected the cars, all of them were much older than me! One of the young boys with the cars was Finlay McLean, so we were introduced to each other and I had a good look and sniff round the car.
I suggested to Daddy that since the rhododendrons and azaleas were in full bloom that he should invite some of the drivers to go up and view the main Alpine Garden. He did so and a number of them went and when they came back they said how stunningly beautiful they were.
