The last day in London… ;-( . We started this one out with the quintessential plan. Visit the London Tower to find the Raven Master (known formally as the Yeoman Warder Christopher Skaife of Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress, the Tower of London and member of the Sovereigns Bodyguard of the Yeoman Guard Extraordinary), take a slow double decker bus out to Herrod’s for some up-scale shopping, and finish it all up with a short stint in a pub drinking a bit of the old ale one last time.
The full day in Edinburgh. A lot of touristing around. Love this city.
Edinburgh Castle Greyfriars This is kind of a famous locale for two reasons. First, the story of Greyfriars Bobby, a terrier who supposedly went to his deceased owners grave, every day, for 14 years.
This past week, my grandmother, Gussie Dyer, passed away. She had a long and fruitful life and went on surrounded by her family and smiling away. Having grown up on the other side of the continent, our visits with that side of the family were wrapped up in vacations and long-distance travel.
On the last day, we wanted to get just one more view of the City. As part of the “Paris Pass” museum stuff, we were given a river cruise. We should have probably done this earlier as it showed us some sides of the sights that we would have most likely visited on foot.
