Yesterday we once again left Inverness and headed south towards our stay in Edinburgh. The plan was to go to Aberdeen for a day and than head on south. we dearly wanted to visit a couple we met on the road in Ayr but found ourself just running out of time. Suddenly time is realy catching up with us and all of a sudden we are in a hurry. Yesterday on our way down we came across a village named Falkland. Just had to stop and walk around the village, very attractive to look and rather old. Stayed a little too long but it was well worth the stop.
Today on our way to Edinburgh, we visited St Andrews, the home of golf. Just had to go there, always watch the British Open and have admired the course
Time to head for the big smoke and book our site. We had to book ahead this time, due to the festival held here at the moment. Just as well we did as the park is full for the next three days, also it is a long weekend this weekend so it's a double whammy.It would be nice to be able to stay here untill it is all over but unfortunately we have to move on again on Sunday. Tomorrow we will take a look at Edinburgh and discover what the fuss is all about. Hopefully the sun will shine.
Rick and I have come to the conclusion that there are 3 things that are stressful in the UK. We call it the 3R's. Roads, ( very very bumpy ) Round-A- Bouts ( they are everywhere ) and Rain .
The man of the house is happy tonight, good TV reception and he is watching the soccer. All he needs now is a cup of tea and he will be purring for the rest of the evening. Got to go, have to put the kettle on and make tea. See you tomorrow.
