Well, we didn't spot any royalty today, but we did wind up touring around Edinburgh castle for the better part of the day. The weather was finally cooperative for once - sunny and hot! Edinburgh castle is fascinating. There are so many nooks and crannies to explore. We were there for a solid 5 hours and felt like we still could have browsed around some more.
Headed on over to Andrew and Chris' place for dinner after the castle tour. Delicious pasta with chicken and garlic bread Mmmmm! The perfect dinner after such a long day of walking!
Sara, Kev, Dad and I went on one of those haunted ghost tours tonight. It was good fun and quite educational - a lot like the one I went on last year of Greyfriar's graveyard.
We found ourselves in the underground vaults for most of the tour. Quite a creepy place and apparently one of the most haunted in Europe. I didn't see anything but I did feel quite dizzy in the one room, as did Sara, and Kev saw a woman walk behind him in a red dress.
We Googled it later when we got back and apparently
We thought this old man looked like Dad in 20 years or so. Hilarious.
she's one of the ghosts people see milling about so that was pretty cool. The tour offered us a free drink at the pub once we were done so we headed on over to The Hive which turned out to be the club I went to last year with the South Africans! The music was still fantastic but it really wasn't Dad's scene so we had our free drinks and left after about 45 mins or so.
All in all, I'd say it was a pretty productive day. We're aiming to be ambitious and climb up Arthur's Seat tomorrow morning. We'll see how that goes...
Hope all is well at home!
