Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter
For our last full day we rose early and took the train from Edinburgh to St. Andrews. The plan – Mike golfs while I explore St. Andrews.
Once we got there Mike was like a kid in a candy store. We were not sure if he’d get to play at all with the 50km hour winds we had the day before but the golf gods were on his side. The sky opened up for the four hours that he golfed. Sun was shining and he was able to golf the old course!
The old course is the original over 600 year old course where the Open Championships are held, while the new course is over 100 years old.
Mike and his caddie Nick who has been a caddie on that course for 50 years.
I dropped off Mike and explored St. Andrews…
Did a little slo mo chariots of fire run on the beach (where the movie was filmed).
Then stopped in for a tea at a little cafe that boasts being the place where William and Kate met (for coffee).
Then I explored the ruins of St. Andrews castle…
I wandered the cute streets of St. Andrews before I met Mike back at the 18th hole for a pint.
One last morning view from our place in Edinburgh and we are off for our journey home.
Your Grandpa golfed there and he was thrilled too..
