It’s time to wind up the Edinburgh portion of this trip, and what better way to do that than posting a bunch of pictures? You guys like pictures, right?
A statue commemorating a Skye Terrier who was so loyal to his master that he (supposedly) spent 14 years by his master’s graveside. There are books and films made about Greyfriars Bobby. I flicked through a children’s book that had been written about him and it was pretty cute (despite the graves and death and stuff).
On our way to Stirling we stopped to look at the Forth Bridge. There’s a restaurant across the street that makes references to the “Two Bridges”. [I forget the name of the place, but it definitely had “Two Bridges” in the title.]
Yeah, I walked that.
There are “gold” bricks in the ground that you can stand on and be thankful that you’re not being executed.
A statue with really shiny toes. The statue is David Hume (I do not know of him, but I want to read more about him now), and the toes are shiny because of students rubbing it for good look.
And yes, I touched the toe. You never know when you’ll need some good luck – especially when you’re travelling across the UK.
