Pub Culture



Last night I meet a few of my favorite girlfriends at the local pub for a few glasses of wine. It was a most wonderful evening. For the past three days we have had glorious warm weather, sunshine and blue skies—not always the norm in Scotland. Growing up in Texas I took for granted little rain and warm weather on a daily basis. In fact, by September I was praying for cool, crisp days.


As you can imagine, we were not the only ones at the pub looking for an outdoor table. I had to circle like a hawk waiting for people to leave. But it was well worth the wait to sit outside, sip cold white wine and catch up with friends.


I must admit that I quite like the pub culture that exists here in the UK. It’s an integral part of the British culture—a place where you can bring the dog, go alone to read the paper, gather to meet with neighbours and gossip with friends in a relaxed atmosphere. Cheers!
