Seen on The Royal Mile
The view from our hotel
We stopped at St. Giles' Cathedral, which was undergoing renovations, to hear organ music and see the beautiful stained glass windows. Our real destination was at the other end of the Royal Mile: Edinburgh Castle. Even if you're not a fan of history (don't tell Mr. D), this place is packed with interesting information, diverse exhibits, and breathtaking views of the city. It's difficult to not find something that suits your fancy from war memorials, the Crown Jewels, Great Hall, and even soldiers' toilets!

The group made its way back to the hotel once it started to drizzle. We are about to hit the town for what will surely be a delicious dinner (haggis, anyone?). After many hours of flying, walking, and learning, the gang will be ready for a good night's rest. Early to bed for this crew!
