Gilbert lake Association
Sunday, June 10, 2018:  Edinburgh, Scotland, about 7-1/2 hours north of London, England. 
The imposing statue is of Scottish philosopher Adam Smith.
Yes, this is the land of kilts and bag pipes......unicorns too!  That's right, real men wear kilts.
St. Giles' Cathedral where Mark and Paula attended church that morning along with friends Paul and Teresa Hirst.
A very awe-inspiring ceremony, but no photos were allowed. 
More streets of Edinburgh. 
Suddenly there was a huge parade of demonstrators.
They were asking for equal rights for women.
Many hundreds were there making their point.
They were quite determined to get their way and even brought men in to help.
Imagine that, women wanted the right to vote.  The next thing they'll want is to drive cars! 
Paula could only take so much of this so she opted to cool off with some real Scottish ice cream.
Then a bubble blower showed up to delight kids and adults alike.
He had a real zest for doing this right.
The sights of Edinburgh.
Evening brought lights and invitations to come in.
The pubs are a real gathering spot.
Many of the local establishments have live music.

Quote of the day:    The only problem I had was with the brogue in their Scottish voices.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
