our eyes kept drifting to the scott monument while we were exploring – and we decided to go check it out. we paid 4 pounds each and started to climb the stairs. y’all. those stairs were ridiculous. up certain flights there would be drop off points to see the city at different height levels. we kept climbing the circular stairway and the higher we got, the smaller the opening got. when we reached the top i was totally freaked out – i actually had to turn sideways to get through the opening and we were up HIGH! it was insane. insane but beautiful!
feel free to laugh at our video from the climb! (this wasn’t even the tallest spot)
after our death-defying climb we did some shopping at primary (yes, it’s as awesome as you’ve heard it is!) and shoveled food down at Shandwicks Oak Tree – delicious sweet potato and back bean burger for me and lando got a fiesta burger. we made our almost hour walk back to the house and crashed for the night. i would say we averaged at least 10 miles that day of walking (probably closer to 15-20).
the next day held yet another lovely adventure…stay tuned.
