Sketching in Edinburgh

One of my biggest joys is discovering a place for the first time. This summer, that place was Edinburgh. I had never been to Scotland before and I did fall in love with it. So much beauty everywhere. And history. And atmosphere. Swoon....

We stayed at the beautiful and humbling Royal Scots Club, founded in 1919 as a tribute to those who fell in The Great War.

 The view from our bedroom window. Heaven.

There was so much to do, to see, to take in... The Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace... and everything in-between.

 The Royal Botanic Garden was a peak experience. We were happy to spend the better part of a day there.

 There were culinary adventures as well. After all, it is Scotland!
