Scotland, 2012

Saturday night we attended a beautiful, traditional Scottish wedding in the school chapel at Glenalmond College (very Hogwarts, n'est pas?)

We had venison for dinner, followed by sticky toffee pudding in the school's grand old dining hall, and I sat next to a fellow named Rupert who told me stories of having been dropped off at boarding school at the ripe old age of 7.

On Sunday we took a turn around the gardens at Gleneagles, where we spied this giant golden eagle, who looked like he might have fancied Axel for breakfast. Then it was a long rainy drive down to England, where we arrived at Will's parents' house late last night.

There was a slight hiccup with our flight (which may or may not have involved us trying to check in at the wrong airport), so we ultimately decided a road trip was the simplest option. Our Scottish sojourn was a little harried thanks to getting sick and travel issues, but we are now showered and rested in London and glad to be mostly in one place for the next 3 weeks.
