And so, following on from my London Snapshots was the second leg of the journey. We returned to Newcastle from London late on the Thursday evening only to revisit the station the next morning for another train journey. This time north-bound, up to the beautiful Scottish city of Edinburgh. The good weather continued and again, my camera did not make too much of an appearance. We stayed in a beautiful hotel (more on that later), ate and drank, wandering around the city in the sunshine before heading off to Edinburgh Zoo the following day. Unfortunately, we missed our 'Panda Appointment' but I still enjoyed seeing the good-looking animals in nice outfits, ie the flamingoes and zebra!
