Our last day in Edinburgh we spent a bit more looking inside…windows and alleys at least. On the walk up to the castle, the sun bestowed us with its warming glory – hot!
We walked through Greyfriar’ s beautiful Kirkyard to see Bobby once more. He was a Skye terrier born in the middle of the 19th C. His Master died when Bobby was only two, and legend has it that he stayed by his Master’s grave for 14 years. A Lord payed the city of Edinburgh to build Bobby a little house and to feed him. He was buried close to his master in 1872.
Many people came to see him while we were there. The little ”hut’s” name shows some of the Scottish humour…it’s really inside the gates!
Some ”insides” too on the way…
Colourful clothes and tartans, but also a soft pink and blue tartan made especially to the memory of Princess Diana.
I love signs, and Scotland and Edinburgh has got many of those – my camera was full of them…This one close to Camera Obscura.
And – there my dream came true…to be divided into two and able to do double the things I would like to do, help, visit, create, experience…a.s.o….
Just inside the gates, they were preparing for the Tattoo. This year we didn’t make it, but hopefully next year we will be able to see it!
We’ll be back next year – for the Edinburgh Tattoo!
