... bartenders were very kind, and I ended up talking with them for a few hours. Stephen and Lauren finally arrived a few hours later and sat with me at the Whisky Rooms. This restaurant was beautiful on the inside and the bar had a moving latter that they would climb up and down to reach top shelf alcohol. My favorite drink I had there was a 28 day aged negroni that was out of this world. Stephen drank a whiskey that they let age in space... literally. It was ...

... we were delayed for half an hour or so due to some signalling issues. Ah well, can't win them all I guess! At least I was comfy while we waiting, although the train did fill up a bit there, so it wasn't quite as quiet as it was to begin with.

There is the sword, a sceptre and of course the crown, lying on a pillow under bright lights. The jewels sparkle brightly along the rim of the crown. What catches our eye more than ...

... up. Logan and I looked like wet cats with soaked hair plastered to the sides of our faces, soaking wet jeans and wet shoes. We now understood why every Scot in the area wore rain boots...all the time! It was also a strange hour, too early for dinner, too late for tea, didn't make sense to track down the car and check into the hotel to only leave again to grab food, so what better option...find a pub! We continued to strike out on places to drink ...
