The Perfect Pour! The March of the Penguins, A Smooth Creamy Stout. Yippee! But what do we pair with that? Duane had a Steak and Ale Pie that was to die for. Who knew Pie could be that good? Pie, usually steak and vegetables in a pastry crust. It is basically a “Pot Pie” but really, really delicious! After something that yummy, what next?
Sticky Pudding! This, when you get a chance to try, will be one of the best things you’ve ever had in you mouth. No, really, just scrumptious!
Now, all we have to do is stay awake until 10:15. . . Which is, for you international readers, 2215! Paula hasn’t been up that late for years! I think we’re going to miss “The Gorms.” Damn!
This is NOT Hollyrood Palace, but it is the fountain that is outside Hollyrood Palace. This palace, as you certainly know by now, is the home of the Queen when she is in this part of the world. Normally for some formal event like “Knighting” someone. They had pictures all over of when Sean Connery and Gordon Ramsey were “Knighted.” I would guess It is a dynamite place to spend a day or two.
And just when I get you all excited about seeing a real Royal Palace they tell us to lock our cameras away. . . Too bad for you! It was a lovely home, and just so you know, the Queen has a dynamite palace. She may not spend much time here, but when she does, it is Royal!
This is about all we got for a photo. Rather ordinary for a palace, but it was nice inside.
This is just one corner. Inside that little round section is a staircase that will wear you out! There are no lifts in this place, so we climbed!
I know how much you enjoy a good, solid, colorful stone wall, so I offer this for your “Wall of the Day”moment. This Wall has a secret door built in. . Nice huh?
This is a much better picture of the castle we visited yesterday. Remember that one? They wouldn’t let us take pictures there either. We are saving so much on Film we can have two bottles of wine tonight! Wahoo!
We did go to the National Museum of Scotland today and took no pictures worth sharing. Sorry about that, but no matter how much we enjoyed this massive museum you would have hated it. It was full of Old Museum stuff and you know how Old Museum Stuff is simply not Photo Worthy. The picture above is simply a photo of Edinburgh from the roof. We love this city!
They said, “It will last You FOREVER.” . . . Duane said, “Yes, but my forever is probably not going to require me showing up in a Kilt!”
But then Duane saw this particular outfit and dropped his pants! His new Kilt Suit will be done in just a few weeks. As it turns out, that 600 Pound Price is just a starting price and does not include the shirt, tie, shoes, socks and jewelry. It also does not include the guy that ties the tie, so Duane stopped the sale before it got out of hand.
