Scotland #8: Cawdor’s Not-So-Secret Garden

Scotland #1: Welcome to Edinburgh!
Scotland #2: The View from Arthur’s Seat
Scotland #3: The View from Scott Monument
Scotland #4: Going Forth to Forth
Scotland #5: The Beauty of Fife
Scotland #6: Whisky Fail
Scotland #7: Defeat at Culloden

After our visit to Culloden, we made a quick stop at Cawdor Castle – not to see the castle, but the beautiful gardens. The grounds boast two gardens – the Walled Garden and the Flower Garden, and we enjoyed photographing both of them. There isn’t much to say other than – it was really colorful and lovely!

Oh Canada

I haven’t been doing much traveling lately since we are in the height of election season, but last week I stole away to spend the Jewish holidays with friends in Toronto. Dan and Daveeda are some of my favorite people in the world and I wish I could pack them up and take them with me wherever I live. But until they agree to that arrangement or I figure out how to teleport, I’ll have to settle for trekking to Canada every once in a while.

We spent most of the holiday doing what we Jews do best: Praying, eating, and sleeping — and then eating again. But we spent one day taking the kids to Edwards Gardens, a beautiful botanical garden in eastern Toronto.

It was a beautiful fall day and it was just nice to be outdoors and explore the gardens.

And then the kids decided to take a bath in the river, which was a lot of fun for them and a little less fun for the adults.
