Last day in Edinburgh

Not a great picture, but we're finding these signs up around town.
It's our last day in Edinburgh.  (pronounced ed-in-bur-errrrr by the locals)

We took a bus to Holyrood Park, home of Arthur's Seat.  After an abortive attempt at climbing Arthur's Seat, we settled for a walk around the crags.
Imagine, snails everywhere.

We found this 1.5" snail a foot up in a gorse bush!

Lego Kid in his element - running.
This trail ended up being to wet and steep to make it to the top for all but him.

Back to our favorite PieMaker for the yummiest cheap lunch in the city.  Seriously, if you're in Edinburgh check them out.

Another trip to the National Museum of Scotland, this time to see dinosaurs instead of Scottish history.  While it's not worth visiting Edinburgh just for this museum, if you're here it's lovely.
Apparently LEGOs have been around a lot longer than we once knew. 
Mini-figures are hidden in among many of the exhibits. :-D

I know it's geeky, but I loved this funky radiator. 
This museum is just a neat old building.

And, of course, it wouldn't be a family holiday if we didn't check out a local game shop.  The Game Hub was a nice place to check out.  We enjoyed our game and drinks, but it still doesn't hold a candle to The Haunted Game Cafe back home.

Excellent lattes and a game of Dixit
