Visiting Edinburgh


We spent a few days in Edinburgh last week.
I loved it! It's a beautiful city.
We enjoyed the sights.
We had good food and a few cold beers.
Something warm might have been more appropriate
because the wind from the sea was quite cold
despite the beautiful spring weather.

We took the train to North Berwick on Saturday.
We visited the Scottish Seabird Centre
and had a lovely lunch. After that we took the bus
to Tantallon Castle.

I will share more photos from Edinburgh
over the next weeks.
