The Death March Gains a Whole New Meaning

Glasgow, Day 1, Part 2


View Joe and Susan's 25th on ORWAT's travel map.

Our afternoon death march headed in a whole new direction, with a walk to an actual Necropolis. But, it started with a visit to the Glasgow Cathedral. We discovered some lovely parts of the Cathedral:

And, then we visited the parts of the Cathedral that were used for the filming of the Second Season of Outlander!!!!:

Then, it was time to visit the Necropolis, which offered its own interesting sites, along with beautiful views of the Cathedral:

We then walked along endless parts of the city, stumbling upon the acting school where Sam Heughan went to school:

We had a lovely early dinner. I had halibut and Joe had the venison stew:

And, then off to the Pot Still we went! The Pot Still is a fabulous whiskey pub. We tried several whiskys. I'll include information on those later, maybe tomorrow. But, we also had a lovely chat with Bob and his wife. Their godson was married at Memorial Church 15 years ago, ten years after we had been married there! We had a great time with Bob and his wife, whose name escapes me, and their friends.

So far, Glasgow is great!

And, we are still married!

Slainte Mhath!
Susan

p.s. Please don't correct my grammar. Whisky hate grammar.
