Devised for Mike and Eilean ...

Devised for Mike and Eilean Yates, formerly of Shelby North Carolina, in February, 2013. The Yates' have been a pillar of dancing in the Carolinas for decades and also been involved in the dancing at the Loch Norman Highland Games almost since the beginning.

Beyond dancing, Mike's passion for viewing solar eclipses have taken them all over the world. You can detect that in the Promenade Chain progression (thanks, Mary!)
