The view from the Baxter Hostel was lovely this morning – I sat at a bay window while enjoying a bit if coffee. My check out time was around 10 am, so I spend my time planning out my day and taking in the cool air from the open window.
Once I got everything squared away with my new hotel, I ventured out for a bit of late morning breakfast. I stumbled upon The Rosehip. Everything here was lovely – the staff was quite busy and didn’t hold the egg or toast, but it was easy enough to remove them myself. Once my plate was cleared, the server noticed and apologize for the confusion. Really, it was no bother, I just felt bad tossing it, but at least the photo of breakfast came out looking beautiful.
The remainder of my day was spent walking through the National Gallery of Scotland – There were about 14 rooms moving through varied parts of history. You’ll find no photos of the painting on my blog as I prefer not to photograph such powerful pieces – they are best viewed in person.
I must have spent two hours in the gallery just reading the panels and taking in the pieces. Upon exiting I was greeted with a beautiful view of the Gardens at twilight. I must admit, autumn truly is a beautiful season.
