    A fun day, good weather. Only spent time at temples and Kellie's Castle as I had done "Old Town" a few days before. Loved the slower pace. It allowed for a greater appreciation of the temples and their history. No rushing about trying to get it all in. Simon was an excellent guide and very willing to engage in conversation and answers all of my many questions and curiosities.
