What wanted to do

We continued searching for Willie sculptures like we did the previous day in Inverness. It was vastly different day weather wise to the previous day; very wet! As I was in Edinburgh all of last August (See posts from last year) I felt I had done main museums and without the purpose of looking for sculptures it would not have been much fun, wandering in the rain. We saw 36 of 60 big sculptures in Edinburgh and 27 of the 86 wee (little) sculptures in Edinburgh. For lunch, we sheltered in Tates restaurant for haggis, tates and neeps tower with randomly rocket on the side (See Wonderwall360 instragram for picture). I liked the texture more than when I tried haggis as part of a breakfast last year in Edinburgh.

What I did

The ship anchored off shore of South Quernsferry which is where Forth bridge is.and then we were shuttled ashore by smaller boats including the ships lifeboats.

It was good to see the Forth bridge up close and the other two bridges close to it as not been that close before.

It was a very wet day and without the sculpture trial, would not have walked around as much as did. As it was I was very determined! We only stopped for lunch on Royal mike where had Haggis with neeps and tatties and a creamy whisky 🥃 sauce.

Would I return

Definitely the August festivals, still have their appeal, I would like to see more fringe shows and possibly book festival events. Maybe one day I will go round the whisky 🥃 experience. If I went this August, I could bag more sculptures!

So many wonders of the world to write about on my blog wall. I'm an Oasis fan hence the using wondewall as blog name.
