to Edinburgh!

Did you know? In just over two weeks, Chase, Felix and I are going to Edinburgh! Our friend mary is studying there and has kindly offered to put us up for a long (five-day) weekend. I cant wait to visit Edinburgh Castle, which sits atop an extinct volcano, and I would love to walk out to Cramond Island, which is only accessible at low tide--though Im secretly a little afraid of getting stuck out there with Felix! Can you imagine?! The Camera Obscura is a safer bet, I think--or even better (due to free admission) the Royal Botanic Gardens! Of course, staying with friends means were free to spend our travel budget on sightseeing... but, really, we plan to spend it on food! Edinburgh sounds like a good foodie town, and Id love to try some of the more upscale dining (the menu at Timberyard sounds delicious...) but as well have Felix with us, well be on the lookout for child-friendly eateries; both the haven cafe and urban angel seem to fit our bill nicely, and Id like to try the dogs, if only for my sisters sake. But what Im secretly looking forward to the most is shopping at I. J. Mellis cheesemongers, then choosing from more than 40 different varieties of sausage at crombies butcher shop, and taking a picnic to either of the Princes street gardens--I just hope the weather is still nice enough in October! Keep your fingers crossed, everyone!
