I'm sitting in the St. Andrews public library after just having lunch at The Doll's House. Joan was right -- it was delicious and affordable. Now I feel a sense of closure from our last visit here!
Our lunch at The Doll's House.
This had been recommended to Nathan and I when we lived in Edinburgh, but we hadn't been able to find it when we visited St. Andrew's.
Standing in the entrance of New College, Nathan's old stomping grounds.
A pretty little street behind New College.
On the Royal Mile
The view from the castle. Trudy's camera had a miniaturizing effect -- pretty cool!
St. Margaret's Chapel, inside the castle. This is the oldest building in Edinburgh.
St. Margaret herself.
Taking a short rest inside St. Margaret's Chapel.
An overcast morning turned into a beautiful day, at least briefly!
Graffiti on one of the dungeon doors.
The American flag in the upper left corner was carved by a POW during the American Revolution.
Cloudy skies return.
Our view from the train. The little white specks are sheep.I gave my paper and talked to a couple of interesting fellows, including one who is a ph.d candidate at the University of Durham in Christian ethics. He's a graduate of both Biola (2003) and Talbot. I told him that he's exactly the kind of guy we're looking for in our department right now! He's only a year into his ph.d., but still, by the time we actually hired someone he'd be in his 3rd year. He asked for my e-mail and so maybe we'll keep in touch. Wouldn't it be funny if we found Kimlyn's replacement at the Harry Potter conference??
