Tuesday 13th September - Edinburgh

Every day seems to be a big day - and today was no exception.  We walked along the Royal Mile and found a nice cafe for breakfast - very warm and able to sit outside.  Eggs Benedict swimming in Hollandaise Sauce.

We had bought tickets for the castle in Stirling when we visited there castle.  So, off we went to the Castle, along with the millions - just so busy, we did the rounds and enjoyed it, but didn't linger too long, just too many people everywhere.

We escaped and walked back enjoying some street performers along the way.  I was keen to go into St Giles Cathedral, which takes pride of place on the Royal Mile.  The interior was breathtaking, I had to pay the two pound and where a sticker for the rights to take photos but worth every penny.

We then went off "the mile" and over the bridge for some non tourist shopping.  Successful purchases for the grandies :)

We had skipped lunch so opted for an early dinner at a little cafe beside our apartment - very nice then back to the room.  Took a leisurely bath, and a nice cup of tea.

We had a face-time with our Townsville family as they were starting their day.
