Another day, another vacation recap 🙂 .
Today’s post is all about our day visiting St. Andrews. This was one of my very favorite days on our trip!
Happy Friday, friends! Here you go…
Andrew and I decided that Ashby is at that “weird smile” phase. My other kids went through it too. We were like Ashby, what is that face?! She would then smile genuinely and say “I don’t know?”. Hahahaha! We got up early on this day and ate breakfast before taking the train north to St. Andrews, Scotland.
On our way to breakfast, we saw this. I love super random facts like that!
Ah! I love my sweet Kensington so much! How is she almost ten?!
We enjoyed our breakfast at Conti so much that we went back the next night for dinner (because that menu looked really good too!). We ate and then headed off to…
…the train station! We bought tickets for the morning train to St. Andrews. We were pumped!
We love a fun train ride!
These two started off sitting next to each other for the ride. It took just a little over an hour to get there.
…and then this was my seat mate 🙂 .
The train ride out there was BEAUTIFUL! We all decided that we didn’t spend enough time in Scotland. We could have stayed there the entire two weeks. Next time, we’re going back to see so much more of this gorgeous country.
How big does Madeley look right there?! Oh my word! She looks so grown up writing in that journal.
We arrived! St. Andrews was the prettiest little coastal town. It boasts many famous things such as probably the world’s most famous golf course where they play the British Open every five years, the major university (where William and Kate attended and met!) and the castle. The town was so cute too!
We walked around the university to start and then headed to…
…St. Andrews Castle. My kids LOVED this castle!!
We spent so much time exploring it!
We were starving by the time we were finished at the castle, so we headed into town and ate outside a tavern/pub restaurant. We loved all the people watching as we waited for lunch!
After that, we strolled the streets of St. Andrews and of course, stopped for ice cream…
…we were having the best day!
I had another cappuccino and a piece of yummy cinnamon cake!
We walked over to the golf course and admired the history. This is what they call the Old Course. It’s uber famous 🙂 .
We loved watching the golfers come in.
This is what some of us think about golf.
Later that evening, we took the train back to Edinburgh. It was a wonderful day!
Okay, I’m going to leave it there for today and recap more next week!
I hope you all have the BEST weekend!! See you Monday! xo
