Stockbridge duck race 2018

The 29th annual Stockbridge duck race! Hundreds of wee rubber duckies racing down the water of Leith. (All done for charity).
I like to pretend that the ducks are alive and super competitive racing hard to the end. 😃
Photos aren’t that great, as the wall of the bridge is high and I’m wee 😉

Edinburgh Castle Summer Sun

Another beautiful day out, and Jings it’s warm!

Edinburgh has a lot of green open space. Princes street Gardens, I also was sitting under a tree in the shadow of the castle, watching the world go by, it’s a very popular place and It’s awfy Bonny.

But it Wouldn’t have always been like this, up until the 19th century this was the castles northern-defence – aka the Nor’ Loch, and by all accounts a disgusting cesspool – it was polluted with wastage and where the guilty(?) were punished.

In Chains

You know the weather is getting better when fire tricks gets swapped for the chains. 😉 – with the festival just around the corner some street performers have already arrived.

However Todd Various is here all year – his sleight of hand tricks are really impressive. – often found on the Royal Mile, near St Giles’ Cathedral

Filming at Portobello Beach

The BBC are filming something on Portobello Beach tonight – Along with the bonfire they are also playing The Doors, Light My Fire … I’m assuming it’s something to do with fire.  – Probably some rubbish that will be on BBC 3 at some obscure date/time. – nevertheless they better tidy up after themselves.

The adverse weather continues, it gives a lovely opportunity for picturesque photos.
but as the snow thaws, it becomes slippery and slippery … be careful out, the old colloquialism ‘Brass monkey weather’ comes to mind. 😉
