There truly can be too much spagetti squash! This garden plot is near my little garden. My garden has absolutely zero spagetti squash- one of the few winter squashes I don't like to eat-yuck! Perhaps this gardener has left them in the hopes that they will disappear?
Taken at World's End Pub in Edinburgh Just when I think I have posted all the pics from Scotland- I come up with yet another. These packets are condiments. From the left we have vinegar,ketchup,mayonaise,tarter sauce and mustard. I think? At home our condiments are just covered with the makers name and not quite as appetizing or appealing as these cute little packets.

On our last full day in Edinburgh it was so rainy we spent a few hours just looking at the exhibits in the Early People Gallery in the National Museum of Scotland. It would take weeks to see everything in the entire museum.
Flodden Battlefield Monument Russell with battlefield behind him. You can see the monument far off in the distance on the left.
Russell's brother Rick insisted on our going to Flodden Field just over the border of Scotland and England . We obliged and we're glad we did. Thanks to Rick we had a nice adventure and saw a bit more of Scotland and a tiny bit of England. We took a train from Edinburgh's Waverly station to Berwick upon Tweed. Then a bus from Berwick to Coldstream and finally a taxi (we called ahead) from Coldstream to Branxton. We spent two hours at the battlefield of Flodden and then the taxi picked us back up and took us back to Coldstream. We had a pint at a nice pub and wandered til it was time to take the bus back to Berwick and the train back to Edinburgh. Nice day-thanks Rick!

Today we will explore along the Leith River,
go to the Museum of Contemporary Art

where there are galleries.
Eventually we will find an Italian Restaurant for a nice lunch.
