Och aye, the weather

20 Leopold Pl, Scotland, United Kingdom
The weather gods have just not been with us since we left London.  It was cold and damp in York and now in Edinburgh we’ve already experienced cold winds and rain.  It was sunny on the train ride, but alas, it came to an end before we arrived at Waverley.  
We knew it was going to be a rough ride when we got to the station to learn the earlier Edinburgh train was cancelled.  Everyone from that train was now traveling on ours.  So much for the reserved seating...we had to find seats wherever we could.  And the luggage...piled here, there and everywhere.  But in spite of all that, it was a relatively easy ride.
We arrived at our hotel and immediately got checked in.  Now, picking hotels for these trips is always a crap shoot.  Some turn out to be great (like our hotel in York), and some turn out to be interesting (like this one here in Edinburgh).  When the room is clean and the price is right you can overlook a lot of quirks.  We can’t wait to see what our ‘breakfast basket’ will consist of in the morning.
After a late lunch we had a stroll down the Royal Mile.  We succumbed to the elements and headed back to our rooms early to get out of the cold and rain.  It’ll be early to bed...after a few cocktails and snacks...cause tomorrow’s gonna be a busy day...unless the rain keeps up...
Sorry folks...not every day is funny...

Thought you’d be staying at the place we were at last year especially as it won the trip end award.


Apparently rumour of it’s winning a “treeny” inflated the prices so much that we didn’t want to pay!
