We made it back to the apartment around lunch time and had a quick bite to eat, before heading out again. Mom and I explored the part of the Royal Mile that our tour didn't cover yesterday, while Jeff and the kids took off in the direction of The National Museum of Scotland, where Mom and I later met them.
We picked up KFC for dinner and then feverishly packed up all our belongings in preparation for our early departure tomorrow. Edinburgh has been a blast, and I'm so glad we got to spend some time in this lovely city!
|The outside of the Edinburgh University School of Divinity...|
|...And, just inside the front gate.|
|I had so much fun exploring Edinburgh Castle with these two!|
|The Mons Meg is a 6 ton canon that could, at one time, launch |
one of those huge cannonballs about 2 miles!
|Looking down on the city from the castle, toward Calton Hill and the Forth.|
|A tribute to Sir Walter Scott|
|So much to discover at The National Museum of Scotland|
|Fun at the museum|
|Clay was very excited to find Mr. X at the museum.|
(Mr. X is a character from a story Jeff made up to tell the kids.)
The Queen's official residence in Scotland

I don't even know what to say about this!
