Glasgow, Scotland 

We docked in Greenock, Scotland. Greenock is a sleepy port town. There didn’t seem to be much going on even though it was 10 am. We headed toward the train to go into Glasgow.

We saw some beautiful flowers in a park we walked through. 

On the way to the train, we ran into the guy and of course Tim had to take a picture. 😄
  

Once we made it to the train station we had only 2-3 minutes to catch the train. Tim found a woman with a handheld ticket machine. She walked to the train, printing the ticket as we went, so we would make the train. 

On the train a lady sitting behind us asked us how long we were in Glasgow for and we told her just for the day. She handed us a piece of paper and said she had written out some places she thought we should visit. That was so nice of her. We found most everyone was really nice.

  
  

The train station in Glasgow was very beautiful.

  

I thought this sign in the train station  was funny. Notice the sizes. 


We took the lady’s advice and headed toward the shopping district. 

  

  
We found a Starbucks and an Apple Store.  

  

  

We found this police box that was green instead of blue, not sure why, maybe because we were in Scotland not England

  

We also saw this cool building that a coffee shop was in. 

  

We then walked to modern art museum that was ok, but had a cool statue in front

  

Then we found a nice square with benches to have lunch in. 

  

It was very cold, but we found a bench out of the wind.

  

We saw a Jamie Oliver restaurant 

  

From there we walked to a giant park 

  

and then Kevingrove museum and art center They had some cool stuff inside.

  
  
(This was a trophy from a boat race)
  
(Suits of armor and spears)

  

(A dog made of boots in the children’s section)

From the museum we headed back to the ship. 

Once we were back in Greenock we saw this sign…….

  

Unfortunately it was closed. I would of loved to gone inside. (My maiden name was McLean)

Next stop Southampton, England, then on to Italy
