Saturday March 20, 2010 7 days left
Despite the fact that I’m not Leaving this weekend, just leaving (temporary without the capital) I felt like Brittany’s last day was mine too.
We enjoyed a final falafel, strolled down the Royal Mile one more time, went into Parliament, again (I thought our last day was Thursday…) and I explored the visitor’s displays for the first time.
Then we headed up to Holyrood Park to climb Arthur’s Seat. The last time I was in Holyrood Park is was a GORGEOUS Friday afternoon, Ian and I skipped out early to take a walk, but unfortunately neither of us had a camera although we did have water, tissues and semi-appropriate footwear. We walked along the crags, decided to save the trek up Arthur’s Seat for another time. Today was the day.
It was a fantastic afternoon. We gradually made our way to the top (we weren’t resting, we just weren’t in a rush, obviously) spent some time frolicking on a grassy knoll and then at just about dusk made our way back to cook a fabulous final dinner and watch the always excellent Boondock Saints.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from our hike:
the tippity top!
All of Edinburgh, at our feet!
