More Holiday Snaps and a Little Tea for Tuesday

Hello again everyone

I would like to share some more photographs from mine and Wee Man's Edinburgh holiday.
I don't know about you, but when I'm on holiday I like to have the odd treat or two, and Edinburgh was no exception.

There's a fabulous Cafe called Mimi's and on the recommendation of my son and his girlfriend we met them there.
I completely forgot to take any photos at all of our lunch or cakes as I was so in awe of the place.. But I did capture this one on the way out. I had a slice of the lemon meringue cheesecake on the top shelf there. It was so light, it was almost a mousse! 
Oh, and I did get this photo of my coffee to show Elizabeth and the T gang (phew!)

 The whole place is beautifully decorated and has cosy nooks with soft lounge seating and low tables.
I definitely recommend everyone to go there! 
After lunch we went for a walk along the 'shore' and saw lots of swans. I can't say I've ever seen so many in one place before. Quite a few of them were still cygnets, but practically grown.
I also saw this quite near our hotel

And on another day we went to a place called Dynamic Earth

Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience which invites you to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Through a series of interactive exhibits, state of the art technology and even a 4D encounter you will feel the heat of a bubbling volcano, face the chill of polar ice, fly across the globe before crash landing in a tropical rainforest. As if this wasn’t enough, Dynamic Earth is home to Scotland’s only 360 degree full dome film theatre. (from their website
It is one of the most interesting places I have ever been, and much to my delight, Wee Man enjoyed it too. 
We will go again. 
Perhaps the most amazing thing there, for both of us, was a real iceberg!! 
Not a giant one obviously, but real all the same.

Well now, I hope you have enjoyed seeing more of our holiday snaps, and you haven't fallen asleep by now, hehe.

Thank you so much for popping in.
Do take care, be well and be happy.
{{Hugs}} Mo :o)) x


  1. Wow, your vacation photos are always so interesting. I like off the beaten path places you won't find on most itineraries, and this looks very, very interesting. And of course, I LOVE cheesecake! I would have gladly joined you.

    Dynamic Earth sounds like a very interesting place. I really enjoyed the iceberg and learning a bit about it.

    Thanks for sharing your vacation photos, swans, Dynamic Earth, your cheesecake, and your coffee with us for T this week.

  2. Looks like a great place, thanks for sharing the photos, the cakes and coffee look wonderful. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  3. So much to see! Great! Thank you for sharing!
    Happy T-Day !

  4. Looks like you had a GRAND vacation! Dynamic earth sounds like something we would enjoy seeing.

  5. Such wonderful adventures you had.
    Really fun seeing the photos and Mimi's does indeed look like a delicious and special place...yum yum yum!
    Happy T Day to you and Wee Man oxo
    p.s. I would have been beside myself with all of those swans...they are a favorite of mine ♥

  6. I always enjoy seeing photos of someone's vacation-it may be the only way I get to see a place. What a charming bakery and I too would have indulged in one of those treats! Dynamic Earth sounds like a fascinating place to visit-glad you and wee man enjoyed. Happy T day!

  7. Me fall asleep with such an interesting post? You must be kidding! I thoroughly enjoyed you taking me on a wee trip through Edinburgh. The cakes are to die for and the cafe looks really nice, the interior I mean. No wonder it has won awards.
    I like the sound of that museum/experience. I have geology as hobby so anything like that I find interesting.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Have a fab Tuesday and a good week,

  8. Thank you for sharing some more of your Edinburgh vacation. The cafe and desserts both looked too good to pass up.

    Dynamic earth sounds amazing! The iceberg would be fun to be up close to. We saw icebergs in Alaska and I always remember the deep beautiful blue of the ice! Now you will have me looking at travel brochures of Alaska and Scotland!

  9. Interesting about Mimi's as we had it recommended to us a short while ago, must pay it a visit. And visit Dynamic Earth too, sounds like fun.
    I see you've changed your header again, absolutely love it, great cat and flowers. Now how did you do it, I wonder, it looks a bit waxy(?).

  10. I'm definitely thinking I'd have enjoyed that lemon meringue cheesecake. And the setting! Sweet!

    Seeing a real iceberg would make for a special time :)

  11. wow...a wide variety of sights to see...such yummy treats at the Bakehouse...loved the shot of the wall art. ;) and I certainly didn't expect to see an iceberg on T day! what fun...and glad you had a nice holiday! happy T day! ♥

  12. The cakes look yummy. I can see that you have had a lovely vacation.
    Happy T day

  13. Ooh you have made me long to visit Edinburgh again. I love Scotland. Next time I visit I will definatly go to Mimi's for coffee and cake.

  14. Looks like a wonderful time. Happy T Day! :)

  15. I like the iceberg it looks like a whale and I definitely need to visit Mimi's if we ever get up there.
    I was at Park Farm last week with Auntie G and told her what a nice time we had all had. Sigh !!! Xxx

  16. I'm back, just to say your new header picture looks great xxx

  17. I really enjoy traveling with you and Wee Man. :-) Happy T-Day, Mo!

  18. Oh yes, I loved seeing more of your holiday snaps, I want to go to that café right now! The iceberg looks amazing and so does the beautiful globe. I do love the sign on the café wall, how appropriate.

    I too, love your new header, I know I saw it on FB but I love the way you did the neck of the cat, you captured the way they look when they are out investigating things (or hunting I guess). Love it! Hugs, Anne xx

  19. Love your photos and that café is so charming!The lake is adorable too!Happy T Day! :)

  20. Sounds and looks like a fabulous trip! Thanks for sharing. Who would have thought, an ice burg?!I'm drooling just thinking about that lemon cheesecake!lol
