Scotland Day 1

After a very long day of traveling up at 4:00AM I arrived in Scotland. Cold, wet, drizzly, and damp Scotland. The "norm" for summer here!

I'm traveling with Jess and Erik but staying with Susie and Dom (the sailing crew) in Musselburgh which is a suburb of Edinburgh. They recently have moved into their first new home. Jess's parents met us at the Glasgow airport Thursday afternoon. They traveled from Ireland where they were visiting friends.

Friday will be a packed day. Susie is finding out the sex of the baby in the AM. Very Exciting!! Then we are going to do some shopping - Hooray. The best part of the day will be this evening. Susie is a manger at Virgin Active Health Club. A proper health club. At 6:00pm I will be taking my first spin class since January. I CANNOT WAIT!

After the gym we're heading to a restaurant called "The Shore" which coincidentally was recommend by the greatest spin instructor I know Sharon Shriner. She was in Edinburgh for work and posted restaurant recommendations on her blog. Another spot she posted about is StacPolly which is owned by a member of Susie's gym. What a small world!

Well, don't leave us hanging - what happened in Scotland Day 2? Is Susie having a boy or a girl?

Not been to "The Shore" before but I've heard it's one of the one of the better restaurants in Edinburgh. How was it? I'd love to know before I make a booking...
