Dunedin, Florida: City Daily Photo Theme Day!

Dunedin, Florida: City Of Dunedin Pipe Band Kilts Bagpipes It's for real! The City of Dunedin Pipe Band is the real deal. And what a sound! I was fortunate to catch this group practicing near City Hall on a recent weekend. So I was able to take a more informal photo of them. It is an amazing thing to see and hear a real live, seriously competent Pipe Band. If you get the chance, don't miss it!

Dunedin, Florida: Downtown Dunedin Entrance Main Street Visitor Center This is the other thing that Dunedin seems to be well known for... their wonderful, engaging downtown area. The City of Dunedin has worked hard to create a inviting and welcoming downtown area. The Downtown Merchants Association also work hard to make this wonderful downtown experience a reality.

There are over 130 blogs participating in Theme Day today. Please take a moment to check out the list below. Click on any name to take an armchair tour of that city. Have a great time!

  6. They were probably deported from Scotland for playing in a public place. Can you imagine explaining bagpipes to an alien? "Well, we get this animal's stomach, shove a few sticks in it, blow in one and squeeze the air out the others". Is it any wonder it sounds like it does? The original purpose was in war to strike fear into the hearts of the enemy. I say it does a good job.
