Since it is a relatively short drive across the Forth Road Bridge, many of those who live in Dalgety Bay work in Edinburgh. Since Laetitia’s pervious group had only done a few of the many things to do in Edinburgh, she decided to go back there. They started the day by going to the National Museum of Scotland and the Royal Museum next door. For Lunch they went to the Hawes Inn, overlooking the Firth of Forth. Robert Louis Stevenson was a native of Edinburgh who is said to have returned there and stayed at the Hawes Inn when he wrote his novel Kidnapped. The story is about a young orphan whose next of kin has him kidnapped and shipped off to the American colonies to be sold into indentured servitude so the uncle can steal the lad’s inheritance. In the novel, the scene of the kidnapping is the Hawes Inn.
They returned that afternoon to Dalgety Bay and visited Swallow Craig, the second of the town’s streets listed in Rude UK. It is a cul de sac near the Inches, visited the day before. There was nothing in particular about the street or the events of the day that inspired a limerick so she simply made one up.
When Daisy went to Swallow Craig
She took advice from her friend Meg
To glide through the town
In a red evening gown
That was split up the side to show leg.
