Visited the town of Falkland today where we went into the Falkland Palace where Scottish royalty once lived. Amazing old furnishings and really helpful staff who were in each room and gave us a really in depth dialogue about the Scottish royal family. Lots of gossip, well I guess they were normal people. Saw the famous Royal Tennis Court that was where the original tennis of today started. The game was played by Mary Queen of Scots, which was radical in her era. The game in those days was almost a cross between tennis and squash. Met Maureen's two grandsons and they came with us to the airport. Flew to Amsterdam this evening and head off to New York tomorrow. Wow finally getting to New York and seeing Noelle and Shannon in Chicago the next day.
