Re-grouting old tile floor

I want to re-grout my bathroom floor tile. The tile around the perimeter of the room has come out. What is the best way to get the grout into the joints where the tile floor meets the tile wall? I've seen a lot of shows on how to grout tile but the seem to always show people grouting the center of the room and not the sides.

I prefer to caulk this area rather than grout. Over time the grout tends to crack at this joint between the two tiles. If you look at some countertops where there is a tile backsplash and a stone countertop, the grout tends to crack here too.

If you prefer grout, just work the grout in with a small rubber margin trowel or even your fingers.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think the caulk may work well for this application.
