Lift Home

From a cold grey haar this morning to very wet and warm this evening.  Ferry Road, Leith.

Newhaven Road

Looking towards Calton Hill and the just visible Salisbury Crags.  The cold this morning is making things misty.

Our car park garden at work is coming along nicely.

Seafront, Newhaven

Well, goodbye spring. Looking towards Fife across the Forth. (It's out there somewhere in the cold, wet, grey mirk).

In East Lothian, the Parish Church.

Otter Ferry

Last day of Easter holidays, had to go all the way to the West Coast to get the sun. The Oystercatcher, early evening but still warm enough to sit out, even with a strong wind.

In Fife at St Andrews Old Course.  This is the Ladies Putting Green known as The Himalayas. Not the flattest of playing surfaces.

Victoria Park

Leaves and blossom on the trees and really quite warm in the sun today.  Hopefully winter has gone.

The local municipal Bowling green is open again. Summer must be coming.

Welcome to the Pentlands

Forecast was for high winds but dry till late afternoon.  Wet from 9AM on and very windy. Looking towards Edinburgh through the mirk with some "Sunshine on Leith". The sign is new, very cheery. The firing range under King's Seat in use. Usually never used on a Sunday. Extensive new tracks being cut, not very scenic.

Another sunny day and to the Botanics for a change from the park. It was indeed windy but obviously not in the shop. A bit paranoid about safety. So we went across the road instead to, what else, Inverleith Park!

Friday, 11 April 2014


The park yet again. The phone just can't handle the contrast.  Must get back to carrying a proper camera.

Thursday, 10 April 2014


Looking south east from the roof of the Waitrose supermarket.  You can just see the Castle and Arthur's Seat on the horizon.

Water of Leith

This is the new flood defence wall outside the B & Q store in Warriston Road.  In this section they have created a raised walkway for pedestrians.

At Inverleith Pond, another nice evening.

Day Lights

The night shot of St Andrews Square as it appears in daylight.

The death has been announced of Margo MacDonald one of the great characters of Scottish Politics.  A good friend of Leith she frequently open the Leith Gala.

Miserable Mound

From the top deck of a No 11 bus on Princes Street.  Looking toward the Mound and the National Gallery.  Not a nice day.
