Gotta Love Haggis!

The day started off with a late wake up call and some very runny eggs. We cannot understand why all the high fat and deep fried foods but it seems both of us have had enough. Well, that is what our bodies are telling us at this time. From this point forward, I pledge to you friends, that we will be taking the time to slow down and enjoy a real meal. Not some fish fry on the corner or some small pub on the Royal Mile of Scotland. From now on we will be sitting down and enjoying what Scotland (and Ireland) has to truly offer.
With that said today we not only ventured to the one and only Edinburgh Castle but also shopped some along the Royal Mile.
Haggis, yes Haggis, was tried at dinner with the group and I must admit that it didnâ€™t taste at all like I thought. It was something between duck and rabbit; although the consistency was a little strange. Unfortunately, I decided to eat a cheeseburger and chips (fries) â€“ hence the comment about no more fried foods.
Last was a Literary Pub Tour across Edinburgh. The accents on our tour guides were so thick that it was often difficult to understand them but it was great fun either way. Of course, they did mention J.K. Rowling; this was met with a great applause from the group and a round of laughs as we are gitty with excitement as we count down to the 7th and final Harry Potter book.
Tomorrow greets us with a leisure morning in which I will watch my wonderful husband leave the hotel and be whisked away to Dudingston Golf Club in Edinburgh. I, myself, will be holding the hand of a friend while she gets her tattoo later that afternoon, then Greg and I will go a local place for some great (and healthy) food, and then onto the midnight release party for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. Oh how I canâ€™t wait for tomorrow!
