Much travelled Bostonians
I spent Thursday in the lovely company of Stephanie and Ken Watson and their young son, Jake from Rhode Island USA. Stephanie had been to Edinburgh some years ago, but the boys were first timers. So as we passed each historical reminder of how the Scots had helped shape America, the wow factor was running high. The day had started unpromisingly, weatherwise, but it developed into a perfect day for touring. The Guildford Arms and the super staff there, again did us proud and the food was up to the usual high standard. after lunch we headed down to Holyrood Palace then up the Canongate and the high street to the Royal MacGregor for the farewell dram and to book the Watsons in for dinner. A lovely day, new friendships formed and we’ll be reunited again in the future on either side of the Atlantic. New England seafood, here I come!
