Last week Craig’s boss, Dave, and his wife, Veronica, invited us to stay with them in their cute home up in Northern Scotland. Their house is in the Highlands. The Highlands are very famous in Scotland for their beauty. Their house was about ten minutes away from the big Loch Ness, where Nessie lives! Their home was in a cute town called Inverness. Dave and Veronica used to run a bed a breakfast and she is a gourmet chef so we were treated very well. We had so much fun staying with them for a week! It is absolutely gorgeous up there and we feel like we got the real local Scottish experience. We went to Loch Ness at night and saw this gorgeous castle all lit up.

We drove along the coast to a beautiful old lighthouse in a little fishing town. I wish I had taken more pictures but unfortunately I only took one of Craig with Dave and Veronica and the rest of the pictures I got on line…there better than anything I could have taken. It was just so gorgeous, especially with all the fall leaves!

After spending the week up in Inverness we were happy to get back to our little home in Edinburgh. We just LOVE this city. We feel so comfortable here and at home. We spent the weekend eating at our favorite restaurants, walking around the city, saw a movie, and we went and saw the broad way Spamelot at the Edinburgh playhouse! It is based off of the movie Monty Python and the Hold Grail, it was hilarious!
We are loving our crazy little life here in Scotland but are definitely getting a little homesick for our friends and family back in America. We will always look back on this time in our life as some of our best memories but nothing beats the good ol’ USA and being around good friends and our family. We are off to Amsterdam for the weekend! Happy Halloween everyone!
