• In and around Edinburgh

    Today Bill and I figured out how to get around, for the next few days.  The terrible traffic and impossible parking situation dissuaded us from renting a car.  We visited the train station, and made plans for tomorrow, but there wasn’t enough time today for a train venture.  So, we took the bus to Rosslyn.

    Waiting for our bus to arrive.  It is a constant stream of busses, all day long.

    We finished up the day with my favorite dessert, and a walk through the Edinburgh Christmas festival

    Oh, how I love my Toffee pudding, especially with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.  Yum!
