Much of the morning spent listening and ripping...

In the aftermnoon, out to Cramond in the hot, hot sun....









 



Lovely coffee and scones at a new cafe...







The two ladies sitting outside turned out to be my mum's old neighbour Janette and her auntie...

A natter was undertaken - mostly about the loss of sister Pam - although Janette also told the story of how, as a teenager in the mid fifties, the tall man by whose passing of her house every morning she used to time her departure for work was, in fact, Anne's dad...



As we left, the tide was coming back in...



Back home and a stroll around the building site nearby...





Trees appear to have been saved...







In the evening, started watching Eurovision but gave up to watch a new Swedish detective two parter on BBC4...

Watched the voting for Eurovision though, with Sweden overcoming the politically motivated point awarding by winning with a genuinely popular song - though it didn't do it for me...

As ever the original version is better than the performance was on the night...



To bed...

Highlight of the day : A new cafe at Cramond...

I like cramond. Nice to see the pics. Did you stay on Eurovision long enough to see the Russian grannies. Made my night

Glad you like the pics

Watched the 1st 12 songs - at that point, I had the Russian Grannies at the bottom of my scoresheet...
