Whilst on this trip, we met some folks who I had only known via the interweb: Clare (NNF), a fellow Indie author (Trinity and Reapers Rhythm); Suzanne (NNF), a book blogger; and Dee (ONF), a friend for the last decade who I had never met in person. We had a great time visiting... but it was not enough time spent with any of them before we had to part company.
While in Scotland, I spotted Nanny McPhee perched on a kerb on the Royal Mile, taking the air with her jackdaw. Yep, that Nanny McPhee. I just had to snap a photo or three, and then we chatted for a few minutes (SuperNNF) before I put 50 pence in her cup and walked away.
So, as much as it was a trip of meeting, it was also a trip of parting--a string of bittersweet memories that inspires me to make that trek again. And again.
