Day 16 – Edinburgh

My past felonies have caught up with me and I was seized and cast into the depths of Edinburgh prison! Actually I paid something like £14 for the privilege! It was an excellent adventure and a mixture of spooky effects, short rides, dark voiceovers and torture.

I escaped uninjured and hope the accusations don’t stick!

But I get ahead of myself. I set off to find breakfast on the bus with a £4 day pass – finding myself heading to The Southern Cross on Cockburn St.

Ah, the architecture of Edinburgh! I love it.

I also loved my first decent flat white in a while:

Then it was on up the cobbled streets of the Mile enjoying some sunshine and festival crowds.

Lest I be enjoying myself too much John Knox, founder of Presbyterianism, scowled at me from the Cathedral frontage.

Further down the Mile I walked and merely by accepting flyers thrust at me received this many by the time I reached The World’s End.

Best of all I encountered this superior owl.

Walking back towards the railway station I passed Edinburgh prison, which is how I found myself incarcerated.

I purchased some salads and fruit from a supermarket to eat back in my room and lay down for a restorative rest.

This evening I’ve been back to the Vue complex for dinner and a movie, and am now sipping tea and biting down on shortbread.

Goodnight all!

    Good yarn, lass. I’m glad they let you out of the clink. There was probably grafiitti on the cell walls from my Midlothian Cowan forbears. That is a remarkable owl, and I think the owner has a somewaht similar superior owlish look about him,

      You know I hadn’t noticed the owl owner look but you’re right! Like owl like owner!
