We stopped in at a tea room we had found the day before and had an early lunch. You have to look for this place along the Royal Mile (near the Scottish Parliament Building) if you ever come this way. It is called Clarinda's Tearoom and it is a teeny tiny little tea room run by two lovely young ladies and is so homely and looks like granny's parlour. They served homemade sandwiches, soups and other meals and had the most amazing trolley filled with homemade cakes, scones and slices......YUM! We both had a grilled cheese sandwich and something from the cake trolley. As well as tea served in vintage teapots with mismatched cups and saucers.

We still had time to visit some of the free museums on The Royal Mile. One of these was the People's Museum but we were disappointed to find it closed at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon so onwards towards the Museum of Childhood. This was very interesting and rather creepy in some ways......I speak of the dolls room. All those vacant eyes following your every move....made me think of a horror movie.
