Edinburgh Festival is back again, which means traffic, traffic traffic, and some very grumpy hours having to drive through town. The traffic management system of this fair city is beyond horrific!
Although I find the whole festival thing quite tedious these days, a good girlie night out was had at "Forth on the Fringe".
Gin a necessary accompaniment to a good night out.
Gin in Tins.
2nd row seats.

A walk up Ben A'an made for a lovely day out, even though we got a bit wet in the rain. A short and steep walk that is well worth it for the views at the top.
Not sure if he was hungry, but definitely a caterpillar.
Day out, home cooked dinner, drinks and a rainbow. What else does a girl need?
Lunch at my Tay spot.
Harbour at Granton.
A day trip west to Culzean Castle. The drive through is quite far but well worth it for a walk along the beach and then up to the very picturesque castle and gardens.
A bonus for the day was seeing an adder soaking up some warmth on a piece of rock, before it slithered off into the grass.

This weekend has been busy with running and mountain biking and more rainbows.
Happy? I think so.
