I was unable to write while in Scotland, so here is a somewhat detailed post about what we did. After ariving in Edinburgh Airport, we departed in the big, green Coach for Holyrood Palace. This magnificant "castle" is the residence of the queen when she is in town. We spent about 3 hours their befor heading to our hotel for the night. we stayed in the Ramada hotel on Princes street in front of the Scott monument in Edinburgh.

Yesterday my dad and I took a road trip to San Fransisco to see a game. it took about 6 1/2 hours to drive up there. on the way the GPS stopped working, but we arrived safely. the stadium was really neat. we saw a few home runs, and Cincinnati beat sf 5-2. the drive back home was relatively uneventful, and took about 6 hours.

B Beavers Today I am writing about beavers because they are a good example of diligence and perseverance. To see a beaver building a dam, symbolizes ambition and that hard work is necessary to achieve your own goals. Beavers are fat furry animals that are generally found in North America and Canada. They are known for their "danger signal": when startled , a swimming beaver will rapidly dive while forcefully slapping the water with its broad tail. This creates a loud "slap," audible over great distances above and below water. This noise serves as a warning to beavers in the area. Once a beaver has made this danger signal, nearby beavers dive and may not reemerge for some time. Beavers are slow on land, but good swimmers that can stay under water for as long as 15 minutes. Frightened beavers rarley attack a human. Beaver meat is generally served in restaurants in the Northern US.
