After our walk around the city our second day there, we all drove* out to Tantallon Castle in East Lothian, where Brett and Liz met with their photographer again. This castle was built in 1350, and to be able to go explore and walk through most of it was mind blowing. Anthony enjoyed popping out of windows way up high and yelling down to us until we figured out where he was. After Tantallon, Anthony, Amy, Rachel and I went to Dirleton to try to see another castle, but we got there too late and it was already closed to the public. The next best option was to go have our first beer at a Scottish pub. We did, and it was delicious.
*We rented cars while we were there. It was our first time driving on the opposite side of the road, with all the different street signage, and it. was. terrifying. To begin with anyway. After we got the hang of it we were zipping around town like we were locals lol.

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, Anthony and I traveled to Scotland (Edinburgh to be exact) for our friends Brett and Liz's wedding! It was such a great trip, and their ceremony was absolutely amazing! And being part Scottish myself, it was a wonderful opportunity to see where my ancestors came from! We took so many pictures while we were there, which I will share with you in the next few posts.
The photos above are from our first day there. Anthony, two of Liz's girlfriends, and I went on a little walk around the neighborhood where we were staying, while Brett and Liz had a meeting with their photographer. The city of Edinburgh is so old and beautiful.

A work friend of ours lives up in Tejon Ranch with his wife, and occasionally have gatherings at their place for deep pit barbecues. This past time we went up, he also decided to break out some of his aged beer bottles and have a tasting with all of us. We were so excited, because a lot of the beers he had (specifically Stone Brewing Co.'s early Vertical Epic bottles) you can't find anymore. So to be able to taste the aged ones was a real treat! Here are some of the photos I took that day.

"Dear normal day. Let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I can, for it may not always be so.
One day, I will dig my nails into the earth or bury my face in the pillow
or stretch myself taut or raise my hands to the sky
and want, more than all the world, your return."
