Stanton and the views of Edinburgh from the castle.
View of Edinburgh castle with my pathetic attempt at the "balance beam."
It took a lot of peer pressure, and begging from me, for Stanton to take these pictures. (But once he saw the "Braveheart" ensemble and assortment of weapons he was more than happy to play dress-up!) I love them!
Day 2(April 29th)- After taking the red bus tour around Edinburgh we traveled to St. Andrews where the men stressed out over their upcoming golf game. I'm not sure any of them slept that night.
Her majesties- Princesses Amanda and Marianne
Amanda, Lisa, and the views from the top of the William Wallace Monument-pictures do not do it justice.
Day 4( May 1st)The men golfed again, while the women explored the castle and cathedral ruins at St. Andrews. Then Stanton and I left the group and traveled to London.Me atop the tower at the St. Andrews Cathedral
Day 5( May 2nd) Stanton and I took the red bus tour and enjoyed all the major sites of London. Then we finished the day off by riding the London "eye" ( a huge ferris wheel with views of the city) and taking in an Alfred Hitchcock play. London is great. Someday I want to return so I have time to go to the Shakespeare Theatre.
On the red bus!
Stanton at the Tower of London
Me and Buckingham Palace
Day 6( May 3) We saw a few more sites in London. I particularly LOVE "Harrods" department store. Then we flew home- to real life.All in all it was an amazing trip.- and of course, my kids were much cuter upon my return than when we left them. (Funny how that happens.) I recommend Scotland to anyone considering it. I can't wait to go back. Hopefully it won't be another eleven years before our next trip!
