Proper Cornish Kilted Walk
Some say the weather is warmer down in Cornwall.
I went out for my first proper Spring walk today.
In a gap in the showers I went for a Kilted walk wearing a sweater and anorak. no scarf or gloves.
Loverly sparkley sea. Temp just above 50.F
Recent high wind and months rain in one night.
Nice and warm in my 18oz box pleat government tartan.
Box pleats certainly keep the wind out of my Kilt.
Met one of my friends who had found a Garter top which I lost last week. Bought some old books on paintings of wildlife in the Highlands and Victorian Photos of Cornish Harbours.

Few tourists about . Average weather for the time of year.
Nice to get the pleats swinging properly again.
Afternoons are better than the

Some how an Indian tried to ring me so he could contaminate my system.

Lady at dance claimed to be a dressmaker . She did not realize 18oz Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Ex RRS BOX PLEAT Black Watch was different to Modern Locharron 16 0z Black Watch. KIltiekid.....3.4.16.

EX RRS Black Watch Box Pleat looks lower Quality than Locharron.
Marginally thicker than Locharron.
As I understand from Tartanpleats Knowledge 18oz is actually 1 oz thicker than 16 oz. Leaving before system crashes Kiltiekid....3.4.16.

Box Pleat is stiffer than Knife edge pleats so air conditioning system does not work in cold dance hall. Dancing in Argyll Jacket and Waist Coat with full room heating on. 100 yards from the beach and Atlantic Ocean, with the sea boiling white foam , Kiltiekid....3.4.16.
