Not Mr Fawkes...

Up early - this the view first thing...


Out around 7:24 for the four mile walk...


...to the top of the hill...


...and down...


A man was out, trying in vain to clean up a pot of paint he'd spilt on the road...


Onwards and over the main road at the Zoo...


Along the cycle path...



...past the golf course...



...along the road that leads to Anne's mum's.


Third time of spotting this wee chum - a bit blurry today...


...to Murrayfield...


...and along the main road - the only point with heavy traffic - but on the other side of the pavement from the road, was the Water of Leith....


Into Roseburn...


...and down to the water...





..through the woods...



...under the bridge...


...and up the forty or so steps to the road on said bridge...


Into the Georgian West End...



...past the cathedral...


...and the "Venetian" tower...


...hitting my target in 77 minutes...


At lunchtime, an order fulfilled...


...and walked on into Dalry where Swedish House Mafia did their bit for St Columba's Hospice...


...and Paul McCreesh did likewise for the Cats Protection League...


In the evening to the sixth floor of an office overlooking the castle, guests of the Fund Manager tenant...


Drinks and a lovely buffet of chilli chicken, followed by spectacular views...









...for this year's Fireworks concert, featuring the music of Prokofiev, Bernstein and Shostakovitch, in a 50 minute programme of choreographed beauty...




  
















Those were 20 of the best of around 150 pics taken...

Home to watch Rheostatics from Saturday night in Dundas Ontario...


The wonders of the internet age...

Highlight of the Day : Fireworks...
