About that dancing along the Clyde…

Well, after posting that story about the dancers on the river Clyde in Glasgow the other day (see here) I decided to take a look at some of the other pictures I took that day, including about another half-dozen that included those dancers. And they are not only the same dancers in every picture but several of them are wearing black tee-shirts emblazoned with the name and logo of their dance club: Glasgow Lindyhoppers. I had thought originally that this was impromptu dancing by strollers and bikers on the River Clyde Walkway. But no, it was all planned! Well, good for them. They were having fun with their favorite pastime and getting some fresh air at the same time and and others were enjoying watching them.

Here are some more pictures of the dancers:

Here’s the color version of the monochrome photo that was my Monochrome Madness entry the other day:

You can find more info on the Glasgow Lindyhoppers at their website here.

I’ll show a few more pictures of my walk along the River Clyde later on this week.
