Last Thursday night saw posh frocks and kilts out in force for the annual St Andrews Night Ball in Awali. This year, like all years, it was held in the Bapco Club in Awali and music being supplied by the Glencraig Dance Band. The toast to St Andrew was given by Nicol McLaren, the leader of the Glencraig Dance Band.
We had a great night with almost 200 in attendance. There were several invited guests, one of whom was HE Jamie Bowden, British Ambassador to Bahrain and his wife, Sarah.

Also at the ball were my parents, who are out here just now and who celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary last Friday. More of that later, however at the Ball they were presented with a bouquet of white and gold roses. Like the good daughter that I was I forgot to take my camera to the ball. So this photo was taken on the morning after the ball.
