Miss Wendy and I arrived at night and had a terrific meal at Howie’s Waterloo which included a divine cullen skink and gave me the chance to say ‘I’ll have the pheasant’ which is not too common for me. In the morning we started with the Old Calton Burial Ground, which I visited on my very first trip back in 1980. I even took another picture of David Hume’s grave which I have in a yellowed old snapshot. They were dismantling the Christmas Market next to the Walter Scott Memorial, but this lovely caravan was still there waiting for me — but Wendy talked me out of rolling it away.
Golly! Just looking at the Howie’s menu is making me drool! Haggis! Selection of Scottish cheeses! Shetland salmon! Do they do kerryoots as far as New Jersey?
Glad to hear you’ve been having fun in Edinburgh. Too many years since I’ve been there.
I wish I were still there. Got back to NY last night. Classes begin Wednesday 😳 and yes, drooling too. It was delish.
