The Royal Mile is a succession of streets forming the main thoroughfare of the Old Town and it runs between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. I took the photo as we were walking towards the palace, the sun had set and we had some lovely colours in the sky. Edinburgh’s Old Town is beautiful, the buildings are full character and history. Edinburgh is now one of my favourite cities, along with Florence and Paris.
We went to Edinburgh a few years ago, we didn’t stay for very long because we had Penny with us. The few hours we spent there were not enough to be able to truly appreciate how beautiful it is.
Last weekend, we spent three days in Edinburgh and yet feel we did not see everything it has to offer. We spent most of Friday at the zoo, both hubby and I had been looking forward to seeing the pandas, in the evening we went for a meal at Kyloe Steak Restaurant & Grill. The meal was amazing, it had been a long time since we had such a great steak. We spent Saturday morning at Edinburgh Castle and walking around the Royal Mile in the afternoon. Most of Sunday we spent it at Holyroodhouse Palace.
The theme for my first week of the 52 Project was Valentine’s Day and as I mentioned on last Friday’s post, I found it difficult and did not capture what I was hoping to. The picture below was taken in the gardens of Holyroodhouse Palace. The picture is of a couple of friends walking side by side, valentine’s day is not only about love between couples but also about friendship.
