The Walter Scott Monument At Night

Ann and I spent two weeks on Scotland in October, 2012.  I put some (like, 700…) of the photos from that trip onto a digital picture frame that sits on the counter in our kitchen.  Lately I’ve been seeing those photos and thinking I need to go through them again, if for no other reason than to share with a Facebook page I contribute to sometimes called “Scotland From The Roadside
This is one of the first photos from the trip, our first night in Edinburgh – The Sir Walter Scott Monument on Princes Street:

David Hume’s Golden Toe

David Hume is regarded as one of the principal authors of the Scottish Enlightenment.
This statue is one of the most prominent fixtures along Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, the cobblestone street that winds from Hollyrood Park to Edinburgh Castle, thru the heart of the “Old City.”
Visitors rub the big toe of the old sage’s foot, so that over the years the green bronze patina has been rubbed away to reveal one big, shiny toe.

Visitors to #Edinburgh’s #RoyalMile will rub the big toe of #Enlightenment philosopher @DavidHumeQuotes statue for luck.
