National Gallery

Down at the Royal Academy collecting paintings from exhibition.  A Fire Engine in attendance at the National Gallery with the punters evacuated to the bitter cold.  The ones with coats in the cloakroom huddling in the Royal Academy. ? Well it certainly wasn't burning down.  Weekend in Ullapool and no internet so no posts.

Junk Pile

Dalton's scrap yard on Salamander Street in Leith has new flats being constructed next door.  The scrap pile has diminished and it looks like a move to the docks where this very large pile is growing.

Traffic Control

The workmen are back and bits of Ferry Road near us are again being dug up.  We now have a 4 way control at the busy junction with Newhaven Road and our street is closed off.  The queues can be enormous and the delays long.  Only anothr 3 months to go!
