Whistle stop tour of Edinburgh

After a couple of very rainy days, today was forecast to be dry, so we headed for a day out in Edinburgh. In no particular order we:

●  Walked the Golden Mile - both directions, very touristy
●  Saw the castle from many different angles - but not inside
●  Spent a couple of hours on the Royal Yacht Britannia - dressed up as a sailor to pour a pint whilst saluting
●  Said hello to Greyfriars Bobby - he turned out to be a cute little Skye Terrier who guarded the grave of his master for 14 years
●  Saw the debating chamber of the Scottish Parliament - no sign of Alex Salmond
●  Stared through the gates of Holyrood Palace - home to the Queen when she visits the Scottish capital
●  Hiked to the top of Salisbury Crag - amazing views over the city
●  Ran most of the local Parkrun - couldn't cross the finish line as I didn't have my card

Phew, what a day!
