Edinburgh, Scotland

This morning Christy and I took the train into Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. We enjoyed some yummy pastries while talking and reading during the 1 hr 45 min train ride. The weather was anything but constant the whole day. It was everything from cold winter weather (we had to put gloves and hats on), to sunny spring weather where we took our coats off and enjoyed the sun! Welcome to Scotland Christy!

The day was filled with a historic visit to Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. We saw the Crown Jewels of Scotland, and I even lost my camera! Which someone was kind enough to take to lost and found! We ate some delicious Fish & Chips in a local pub, and enjoyed a bagpipers tunes of Scotland. I loved the day with Christy so much, and hate that she is leaving in the morning...she is off to Rome on a moments notice, and she's ready for more adventures!!

Enjoy the Pictures of our day!

My friend Christy


  1. It's a long time since I have been up to Scotland/Edinburgh but I really want to go back. We were supposed to be going in May..but changed our minds and booked flights to Gran Canaria instead for a week. Hopefully I will get to Scotland this year! Lovely photos.


  2. Those blossoms are so beautiful! Looks like so much fun! :)

  3. So pretty. I love the blossoming trees. Looks like a fun time!

  4. LOve you photo's Mary! It looks like you guys are having fun!

  5. I'm so glad you and Christy had some fun, quality time together! I bet you really needed that. And oh my, Edinburgh is gorgeous!!!!!!

    Justine :o )

  6. Wow! That is incredible! These pictures make me want to travel! :)

  7. I took some pictures of that exact same drift of pink petals in the graveyard!

    I'm online trying to find out what kind of tree that is. Cherry? Plum? My hunch is that the pink ones are plum and the white are cherry, but I have no idea really.
