Clare’s Visit Part 2: St. Andrews and a Drive through the Highlands

Clare did most of the touring around St. Andrews on her own but there were a few times where I took a break from working and we got to hang out together.

One thing about living in a University town is that there is always a party or something happening around town. While Clare was here we went to the bonfire on Castle Sands for the Summer Solstice.

I love living around all of these ruins.

When Clare and I were discussing her visit I discovered that you can feed the meerkats at the aquarium. I decided to do this for Clare’s birthday gift. It was pretty amazing – although the mealworms in the bucket were not dead, as they appeared, but moved the second you put your hand in the bucket. There is also one meerkat, named Cumberland, that we were warned sometimes bites. Thankfully, he’s cross-eyed so easily distinguishable.

Meerkats!

They know it's food time!

Clare asked for me not to put her picture up but this one is so good that I couldn't resist.

One meerkat, named Chip, is trying to get into my pocket while another is burying my shoe. I didn't mind.

Dragged Clare to Balgove Larder and almost had to drag her back out.
