Edinburgh

We ended staying in Edinburgh as a way to get between the Faroes and the Outer Hebrides. You cannot fly directly from one to the other – no matter how hard you try. So a nice couple evenings and a day in Edinburgh were ahead of us. We stayed near where we could walk to things and saw some lovely vistas and architecture.

We had no trouble finding good things to eat (food in first shot a little nibbled because Mary could not wait for me to take photo!), both a snack at a coffee shop and, later, dinner at an Indian restaurant.

We decided before we got there that we would at least look up yarn shops in Edinburgh. As it turned out, with all the walking involved, that was all the shopping we did (with the exception of finding a phone store for me to switch out my Faroese sim card for my phone to a UK one).

Here is one photos of some of the yarn. As soon as I figure out what I want to use for what project, some of it is destined for a beautiful garter ridged shawl.

It looked like the weather might be changing so we headed back to the hotel and retired early to make a very early morning flight (actually two flights!) to the Outer Hebrides.

I wonder what we will find there?!
