Photohunt : Plaid

The PhotoHunt for today is Plaid. A plaid is a cloth made with a tartan pattern wrapped around the waist and cast over the shoulder and fastened at the front. The literal Gaelic meaning is "blanket". Not sure if a kilt fits the theme.

New Zealand is a country of diversed ethnicity. The Maoris came, then the Pakehas meaning foreignors. Among the British stocks are the Scottish. My Sisiter-in-law Karen originally from Christchurch has Scottish ancestry. Dunedin proudly claims to be the the most Scottish city in New Zealand.

A kilt is perfect!
I would think that plaid blanket would serve to keep them warm... if a bit breezy!
Happy Hunting ~
