Saturday 22 April. It is the last free day before joining ‘the Tour’. I can see our total 5 days in Edinburgh will barely scratch the surface. As it should be.
Should I save today’s best for last? No. My favorite visit today was The Writers’ Museum located in the Lady Stair House and devoted to Sir Walter Scott, Robert Burns, and Robert Louis Stevenson, all Scottish of course. Ah, to write, and to read. Would the world not be a better place if we did more of both and less of other things?
The museum is mainly a good read of information placards about the authors, accompanied by small possessions of theirs like walking sticks, books, quill pens, and more. I must add some of each of their works to my reading list. So much to read and so little time left. (Decades is the plan…)
What was second best today?
Dinner at Fishers In The City, 58 Thistle St, Edinburgh. Reservations are a must. We booked online before we left the States. Two hour time limit. Reservation canceled if you do not arrive within 15 minutes after your rez time. Or so they say all that. We arrived and left within the parameters so we don’t know. Drop dead delicious, with outstanding service. Oh, and bring your bank manager. It’s a bit pricey but less than we’ve spent on many another dinner for two. It was darn well worth it.
What else today? 6 1/2 miles walked, including to dinner. From High Street and North Bridge to Charlotte Square to St. Andrews Square to Calton Hill and back to High Street. We’ve walked about 18 miles in the first three days.
