Let me tell you this...that Edinburgh is one freakin' old city! Not having ever watched Braveheart, I'm not up on all that Scottish history. So, we took a 2.5 hour free walking tour. I'm sure we walked much farther than that today, though.
We anchored off the coast Queensferry, Scotland and tendered into town
I don't know what it is about me and Sandeman's walking tours. The last time I took one was in Brussels, and it rained so hard we had to bail at the midpoint. It rained again this afternoon, but I had my trusty dollar store rain poncho to keep me dry. Coincidence? I hope so.
We heard lots of history and interesting stories from our American guide. Yup, you read that correctly...but sometimes when you take a tour by a non-local they actually know more about the place because they've had to study harder
Oh, and did I mention there was ANOTHER bus accident? Yesterday we were ON the bus. Today we were standing BESIDE the bus. Coincidence? I hope so!
After the tour and the requisite souvenir shopping, we headed back to the ship. Another sea day tomorrow. Maybe it'll actually be warm enough to enjoy some of the pools and hot tubs on the top decks.
Coincidence? I hope so!
