When in Edinburgh, you can see the Castle from almost everywhere within the city. Very quickly, you rely on seeing the Castle for your orientation.
So, of course I had to climb up Castle Rock and see the city from above!
Here's me, sitting on a cannon. Behind, you can see what a cannonier (did I write it correctly? 🤔) saw, when he was getting ready to defend the castle. Archeologists can't exactly say when the first settlements on the Castle Rock in the midst of Edinburgh were, but humans may have already lived here in the 7th century 😱 Long way back! In the 14th century, the first Castle was built up here, then they added more and more buildings over the centuries and eventually it became this massive fortress. For years and years, the English and the Scots fought about it. ⚔🛡 In more recent centuries (20th, 19th for example) it was used as a war prison.
If these walls could tell stories, right?
Also: Safety first, when climbing onto old war artillery, kids! Thanks to my travel buddies for keeping me safe when I have to get the right shot for instagram 😜 (see pic 2)
For today's #plushiewildernesswednesday , I'd like to tell you about my recycled cape. It started off life being a top my Pet used to wear. It apparently, ahem, shrank in the wardrobe *wink*. My Pet asked Cousin Gellika Pet if she wanted it, but she didn't. I did, however, and put my paw up for it. I then got my Big Pet to create this tailor-made cape and the rest of the material has been kept aside for other crafting projects. And that's the end of my little story. Xxx
