I'll be your candle on the waaaaaaaaateeeeeeeeerr!One of the many things "Scots invented"...they claim to have come up with literally everything. I don't question it, because it is fun to indulge them.
While we were strolling down the street, we heard bagpipes in the distance. This is not an unusual occurrence, however these pipes were getting closer. We turned around and saw a father escorting a bride through the city behind a piper. She looked bashful but obliging :)
I have always been fascinated with cemeteries. I've never really seen them as eerie. It always seemed sweet to me that most graveyards were just outside a village chapel or cathedral. Citizens enjoyed having their loved ones nearby. I think it's a lovely idea. But...ask me again when accidentally walk through a graveyard at night by myself. I will most likely think it is still lovely as I briskly run as fast as I can away from the vampires.
The sentiment David shared with me about Rugby loyalties goes "I go for Scotland and any team that plays England."
The detail!!! Again, I hope that I continue to stand with mouth and eyes gaping at the marvelous decorative details and not become jaded by ALL of the beauty that surrounds me.
I love this family.
So I leave tomorrow for London. I have a loose itinerary to work from. I have a lot of things to see, and after that I plan to meet some couchsurfers in the area to have a drink and share travel stories.
Then I am off to Paris on Wednesday!! I am hoping for some sunshine...I'm about done with the grey, gloomy UK. Insert Beatles song: Here comes the sun.
Thanks for sharing this trip with me, my loved ones. I hope all is well in every one's world. Please send me notes about how you are and what is going on in your worlds!
