The Great Egg Roll of 2010.....

I havent been at home for Easter in a long long time...and whenever i suggest to people that we go roll our easter eggs....i normally get blank stares.
But this is my family tradition,( i think its mainly a Scottish thing.)
We felt tip our eggs, and go down to the local beach and throw our eggs down the hill.
The winner is whoever s egg last the longest....

My mum sent me some pictures from the ,'The Great Egg Roll of 2010"

The Egg Contendors....
a list of their names was also supplied (see if you can match them)...
The Hulk, The Joker, Superman, Japanesee, Hey Arnold!, Gramps, Betsy-Lou, Harry Potter, Mister Invisible, Lovey-Dovey, Two Face, Blue-Man, Doom Man

The Rollers (in age and height order)

Mum and Dad join (half) the clan

Of course there is always the expected tears when the first egg breaks.....
and lots of training has gone into the ability to run up and down the hill to retrieve your egg against Edinburgh's strong winds....
Georgia and her egg Betsy Lou were the victors.
Georgia's technique and Betsy Lou's hard-headedness were a winning combination.
As can be seen from her expert egg-rolling poise....
Maybe some time soon i'll get home for Easter and challenge them....


  1. Oh my goodness, that seems like so much fun!

    We just hunt for eggs. When you're twenty-two and twenty-four like my sister and I are, it's a little silly to race all over your house looking for them, but it's still so much fun!

  2. Brilliant pics! Wish I'd painted an egg and rolled it now - haven't done that for years... :)

  3. this looks like so much fun!!!!
