Edinburgh Day 2

After our morning cappuccino, we headed up to Edinburgh Castle. Despite the massive crowds, we enjoyed the Castle and its sweeping views. Jim was pleased to visit the National War Memorial and to find the name of his great-grandfather, who died in France in World War I, in the register.
We headed to the Scottish National Museum. There we checked out some mysterious carved stone balls that date to the Neolithic era. These balls, found in Northern Scotland, are about the size of baseballs, and are intricately carved. Their function is a complete mystery.
We spent the afternoon relaxing and catching up on our blog.
