Bonnie Scotland



Edinburgh is a beautiful city. I remember it vividly even though I haven’t visited for years. (It somehow fell off my radar, usurped by Glasgow.) It’s unique features include two extinct volcanoes, one of them right in the city centre onto which Edinburgh Castle is built; a fact I was unaware of until today.

I have a meeting there tomorrow. It’s a trip I could do easily in one day, but I’m going to stay overnight and spend Friday enjoying the city. Fingers-crossed for sunshine and no rain!

Next week, I hope life will be more-or-less back to normal, after the chaos of moving. I’m hungry to get back to writing and catch-up on blog reading. Bet I’ve missed tons of great stuff!

Travis - will do! :)

I've never been to Scotland - isn't that awful! And despite the fact the Glaswegian accent is one of my favourites.

Enjoy the trip. :)

Did Druids show up to sacrifice the town's dumbest virgin? [Golden Girls reference.]

Oh, I LOVE Ediburgh! I've only been there once, and it was years ago, but I'm dying to go back someday. Hope you enjoyed your meeting and your stay there. :-)

Mary said...

Cate - that is dreadful. ;) You MUST go!

Conduit - thank you! It was an all-round success.

Natalie - LOL! I didn’t see them, but would not be at all surprised...

Caryn - isn’t it great? I found it even better than I remembered! Hope you get back there, soon.
