We got on the lift (elevator) in our hotel in Edinburgh. Several more followed us in. As the last person stepped into the lift, the elevator said, “Get out! The lift is overloaded.” It’s a good thing we got on first. 😉

Royal Yacht Britannia

While in Edinburgh, we toured the Royal Yacht Britannia, which is permanently harbored here. It is a beautiful, historic vessel. We were surprised by all the Corgis that appeared in many places throughout the ship.

Edinburgh, Scotland

We took a bus ride around Edinburgh. It was a bit rainy, which didn’t make for the best pictures. But we got a view of a beautiful, unique city.
