Mortonhall

From Holy Island we drove north along the coast, into Scotland, making our way eventually to Edinburgh and the Mortonhall Holiday Park, our home for the next several days.

 A Highland bovine in the Mortonhall complex; this is what a
hippie longhorn would look like


Mortonhall was a large baronal or ducal (or whatever) estate
in years past; now it is a holiday park, holiday homes,
condos, a golf course, tennis, restaurant, lounge, farm,
and, yes, a crematorium; diversification is everything these
days.


Tenting out of a Porsche; I love the style; Vicki and I did it in
the 80s out of a 911; I still relish a moment in Colorado when,
the battery dead, she actually pushed the monster to start it,
while I sat in the driver's seat, laughing hysterically; she was
afraid of it; with good reason;  but I now prefer our current rig;
when camping
One sees all manner of rigs; this world-traveler is from Switzerland
