Edinburgh, Scotland: Day 3

Monday, June 11, 2012

For no real reason we stayed up until 4:30 the night before which meant waking up for our 10am check out was not going to happen.  It only took us an hour and a half longer than it should have, but we struggled the rest of the day to not fall asleep on our feet.  We had to drop our keys off at the office which was a bit of a walk but it gave us a nice view of the city.

After getting breakfast we walked along the Royal Mile until we reached Holyrood Palace.  This is where the Queen stays when she is visiting Edinburgh.  The palace was beautiful but what I loved the most was the gardens.  Wishing for a garden like the Queen is a bit a of a stretch, but I do hope that I can someday have something that nice on a much smaller scale.

Because we were all so exhausted we spent the rest of the day sitting on benches and in tea shops just enjoying each other's wonderful company.  Our flight left Edinburgh around 9:20 and by 11:30 I was back home and in bed.  Not bad for a weekend getaway!
