Door of the Day: Along the Royal Mile

Door of the Day: Along the Royal Mile

RoyalMile-Edinburgh-rusteddoorpull

Here’s a simple door-pull on a red door along Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. The gold is chipped and peeling, telling us this passageway is well-traveled.

There are many fascinating doors along the Royal Mile. Perhaps my favorite is the one labelled “Lady Stairs Two Close.” Not sure what it means. Do you? Let me know!

This is an old and rusted handle from Alnwick Castle in England. There are many amazing doors here, including some that lead to dungeon cells.

Alnwick Castle is famous for being the filming location for Hogwarts broom-flying scenes in the Harry Potter movies. Quidditch matches are played here and you can also take broom-flying lesson—which we did, of course (we were the only adults in our group). I passed with flying colors—in the sense that colors flew past me at an alarming speed.

My instructor, Professor Bottomley, explained afterward that I should stick to writing about brooms instead of trying to ride them.

Despite Professor Bottomley’s advice to writing about brooms, there is no broom flying in Zoone—there are easier ways to get around . . . like on the back of skyger! (Though, perhaps my old flying instructor would be pleased to know that I’m currently working on a book about magical brooms.)
