London to Edinburgh

It was time today to say goodbye to Auntie Sandra. It had been a wonderful and fun week with her (as usual), but now we were headed north to Scotland for the next leg of our tour of Britain. We boarded the train to Edinburgh at Kings Cross.
 Our first class tickets were a deal: for just a little bit more, we had lots of room and free food and drinks for the entire ride. Keep the tea coming. And much less stressful than flying. 
 Granddad picked us up at the station. He and Debra (and Ben, the dog) had driven down from the Highlands to meet us at Auntie Karen's and Uncle Chris' house in Edinburgh. We were all looking forward to stretch our legs a little (yes there was some rain), so Granddad took us on a short walk over to the Museum of Modern Art to show Sophie the giant sculpture of a baby. Sophie was mesmerized. 
 I just hope she does not have any nightmares.
 So no sunshine?
 For dinner, Karen drove us to the Sheep Heid Inn in Duddingston for some good Scottish food. Delicious.
On the drive home we enjoyed some magnificent views of the city from Arthur's Seat in Holyrood Park. 
First impression of Scotland - very nice.
