Edinburgh Photo Tour

Last evening my husband and I went over to Edinburgh for an event at the Parliament. We took the early train to get in a bit of shopping. Princess Street Gardens, a public park at the foot of Edinburgh Castle, was decorated for the holidays and playing host to the German Christmas market. The krapfen (a doughnut made from sweet yeast and dusted with powdered sugar) were particularly good on a cold damp night.

After a jaunt up to the castle gift shop for gifts, we did a mini pub-crawl down the Royal Mile, before making our evening engagement at Holyrood. It was a fun, festive outing and just what I needed during the holiday season.

What a luxurious way to shop for Christmas presents. Beats the mad dash at the mall any day.

Cheers!
