    ... Charles's honeymoon. A staff of over 200 were onboard and the private staff of the Queen also traveled with them. This wasn't just a "yacht" but resembled a small cruise ship.

    ... tea, reading the paper, and having dinner. At 19:00 I headed a few blocks away to The Beehive Inn Pub, where the Literary Pub Tour was starting at 19:30. The tour was 2-hours of great fun and entertainment. It consisted of two actors who took us to three different pubs and explained how the areas nearby related to the literary greats of Edinburgh.
