We stayed in a wonderful furnished apartment on E. London St. This is the view from the apartment's living room--or maybe the master bedroom. It's hard to say what time it was; it got dark around 3:30 each afternoon. Actually, this photo may have been taken early in the morning. Husband is an early-riser, even on holiday, and he always enjoys going on little jaunts before the rest of us wake up. He might have taken this before setting out.
He always someone/something photogenic on his walks. He usually manages to find some coffee and a newspaper, too.
Look! It's the site of Conan Doyle's birthplace. He led such an interesting life.
Now for the coffee: Artisan Roast on Broughton St.--some of the best coffee in Edinburgh, supposedly.
Husband certainly liked it--he bought a bag for us and one for a friend.
Cheeky! This is a reference to The Elephant House, the cute Old-Town Edinburgh coffee shop where J.K. Rowling used to write. The Elephant House is featured at least a couple of times in the Sunday Philosophy Club series by Alexander McCall Smith (is it okay to mention that I considered stalking him while in Edinburgh? Just kidding! Sort of.).
More soon from Edinburgh!
