London, Friday

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.

London, Thursday

So today was a bit of the enigmatic tourist kind of day. We purchased a hop-on-hop-off ticket to one of those double decker bus companies and jumped on to go see stuff around the city.

London, Wednesday

Afternoon in London, we got in around 3 and dropped off the bags at the B&B. It is an odd one. There is literally a shed in the flat Which is currently housing the girls!

Edinburgh to York

This day the bronchitis finally got ahold of me. Spent the whole morning finding a GP to get a prescription. Keeping the girls up way too much with the incessant coughing.

Edinburgh, Monday

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.

Edinburgh Scotland, Sunday

This was an absolutely wonderful day in Edinburgh. Sunny and beautiful and my girls came into town, a bit bedraggled, but in high spirits as they always are. Such great travel companions.

Edinburgh Saturday

After a week teaching in Glasgow, some relaxation in Edinburgh is in order. I seem to have come down with a bit of a chest cold this week and am having a tough time sleeping with all the wheezing… Went to the pharmacy and got this for it.
