Exploring!

In the past two weeks I have been back to England, had a city break in Edinburgh and returned home to the US. Its been an eventful few weeks with a grand total of 5 flights! I thought I’d share some of the photos with you now that I actually have some time to sit down. I hope you are all having a great weekend!

Like the gunners who once fired this cannon, I was trying to get a good shot.

      1. No, I didn’t. I was there by myself, and only for 2 1/2 days, so I opted for the tourist bus on day 1 (doing the hopping on and off thing), and then for exploring by foot on day 2. Maybe next time πŸ™‚

    1. It’s those coincidences that make life so much fun! Both cities are wonderful places. I think you’ve been to all of my “must visit” archaeological places by the way and I’m jealous! Reading through your posts on Skara Brae and the Ring of Brodgar at the moment. πŸ™‚
