As much as I enjoyed my jaunt to Gdansk last week, it’s always lovely to return to Edinburgh. This time I was blessed with clear weather on my approach to Edinburgh airport and I managed to capture some lovely aerial shots of the city.
I was then immediately blown away with a lovely sunset over Granton Harbour as I took an evening stroll. I spotted a seal in the water for the first time, but only had a little camera with me and the result was so grainy, I’m too embarrassed to publish it!
Friday saw me try out the food at the newly renovated Peacock Inn at Newhaven. It’s beyond recognisable from the old version, but the fish is still as good as ever.
With the sun blazing on Saturday, I headed down to the Borders for the day on the motorbike before warmly welcoming my Australian relatives to a very sunny Edinburgh. As the sun shone on Sunday, we ventured to Ecofusion and a stroll around Arthur’s Seat. It seems half of Edinburgh were up at the top, but it was the most glorious day for April and I loved that people were out and enjoying the sunshine after the long, cold and snowy winter we’ve had.
This week sees me spend time with the Aussies and to continue to show them around town and what Edinburgh has to offer. Of course, it will involve a lot of eating and a slice of cake (or two).
