She had a morning of sightseeing – Edinburgh Castle, along the King’s Mile, St. Giles Cathedral, Holyrood Palace. She shopped in the afternoon with the DeLongs. She walked back along George’s Street. After dinner she played bridge with Lois, Lib, and Mr. Lewis, with the Dr. and Mr.Thomas looking on. She drank beer. She gambled with the Beatons. She had a whiskey so she felt very happy.

Another long day riding in the coach. She liked riding up front part of ye time. They went to Dove Cottage of Wordsworth and De Quincey, a very pretty garden. They road around Lake Windermere. She notes the usual things – boats, islands, beautiful cloud shadows, foxglove, rhododendrons. They stopped for a cold lunch at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Grassmere. Afterward she “putted terribly” – (was there a miniature putting green attached to the hotel?}
More riding in the coach to Keswick. A delicious tea at an “old fashioned” hotel with china all over the walls, big vases, pictures.
She and Lib and Lois went downtown – they got bridge tallies and prizes for the big party planned for later. They dressed up for their big 6 course dinner. They played 3 rounds of bridge, then trades and professions.
She, Mr. Thomas, Lib, and Lois walked down to the lake. Great to get out and walk. It was very dark – seemed romantic.
