Breakfast: one cheese roll, one chocolate donut, both from Greggs. Delicious!
Now that's finished, I'll get on with the day. The light streaming in through the cracks of our hotel room curtains would indicate that it was a sunny day today, but light can be deceiving. Once we hit the pavement it was a little gray. One of those days where you aren't sure if you need a jacket or not. Lisa and I both had one on standby, and we both used them.
The cast was starving so we took advantage of the tasty but frugal 3 pound meal deal at Sainsbury's. Lisa and I exceeded our 3 pound limit, but just barely. And only because we always live on the edge like that. We all enjoyed our sandwiches on Grassmarket street and I heard Josh say "I really, really love Chris Clark" to Lisa, but he actually said "I really, really love croissants." Oh well, anyway. I love you, too, Josh. I get confused with croissants all the time.
We had a wonderful visit to Edinburgh Castle. The view from the top is spectacular, and I love the tour guides, even if they are Dutch and not Scottish, as ours was today. At one point Nate claimed to have a "BS in Edinburgh Castle" and gave us all a fascinating and completely bogus tour of his own.
We stopped for a few minutes at the Tartan Weaving Mill and Exhibition, but it's a little noisy and busy in there so we went to Primark, where things are never noisy and/or busy. Actually, we went to H&M first, which used to be so cheap in my mind and now, thanks to Primark, anything over 5 pounds feels like an extravagance. Clothes lasting longer than three months? What's the point? But, oddly enough, I did find that the third floor of H&M affords the most magical view of Edinburgh castle:
Outside Lisa wanted to take a duo-selfie, which we did.
And then we got photobombed by this clown.
