Glasgow for the Eagles Concert (July)

I travelled to Glasgow in July with my hubby and we stayed in a lovely hotel overlooking the SE CC on one side and the BBC Scotland building on the other. The weather that weekend was fabulous so we decided to go for a walk into the city centre on the Saturday morning. Well imagine our surprise when we couldn't get across the road for hundreds of marching bands. We timed it badly as we had to stand for ages watching the bands and their followers. It was the Orange march. We eventually got to the shops and I have to say I was well impressed. We shopped for hours stopping only for lunch. I am quite lucky in that we both enjoy shopping (well I think he does too). We then went back to our hotel for a quick shower and change and off to Hamden Park for the Eagles concert. The concert was opened by Paul Carrick who was absolutely amazing and then on came the Eagles. To say they were impressive would be an understatement. It was hard to believe they were live as they were absolutely pitch perfect. The only disappointment was they finished dead on 10:30 with no encore.

We then went back to the hotel for something to eat and a few drinks.

Next day (Sunday) we had a late breakfast and took our cases to the station, (daylight robbery for the left luggage service) and off to the shops again. This time we bought a saxophone which my hubby had always wanted. Another piece of musical equipment to gather dust in the bedroom no doubt, but hey life is short! We caught the train back in the evening after a lovely weekend.
