Repeat, having passed a couple.

Devised 16th March 2013. This is a teaching dance for our influx of beginners who were having dificulty with figures of eight across/on the sides. Plus I had just taught poussette. Portsonachan means \port of peace", and is a Hotel on Loch Awe where Kristin and I stayed during Easter 2012. The setting is quite lovely, and we had a great time, while experiencing a rather surreal (but friendly) hotel experience involving lost bookings, cold water, delightfully eccentric Spanish waiter, remarkable furniture and many other adventures.
