Hi, we did manage our trip to Edinburgh on Tuesday it was a very cold frosty day the bus had been late due to someone taking ill but fortunately we have a park and ride so we can sit in the car till the bus appears. It was a quick run through as there are bus lanes on the motorway. after a quick coffee and toast we headed off to Princess Street Gardens. The frost was still on the ground as the sun does not get high enough at the time of year. We walked along past the National gallery we did not visit as we will be going back in January for the Turner Exhibition. We came to the German Market and had a look at all the lovely candles and decorations they had brought with them. We carried on and looked done on the Ice rink that has been built for the festive season. I was very tempted but having had a lot of back pain lately I thought I would be sensible and give it a miss as it is 45 years since I skated. I hate being sensible.
We then crossed the busy road and visited Jenners which have been Edinburgh's no 1 for ever. It was bought by House of the House of Fraser a few years ago but it has stayed unique. The Christmas light are always a sight to behold as you can see do put the pictures up to full size. Shortly after this I felt a bit unwell and we headed off to the bus station to catch a early bus home. I must say I was a bit disappointed maybe I expected too much. This is about the third time I have tried to write this so here's hoping. Till next time.
