I was very lucky to get a trip to Edinburgh last weekend. The main reason we went was because Mr H wanted to see the Tattoo - a bucket list thing! Coinciding with our trip was the Fringe Festival which is huge fun. Every corner you turn around there are street performers, shows and comedy. Add in a meet up with one of my great friends, and fellow author Tabitha Rayne, and it really was a superb trip. Here's a few pictures...
Performers at the Festival.
Flyers advertising the many shows...
More performers (clouds I think!) - I love the expressions on the guy and his kid walking past!
The Beehive Inn - we got a perfect upstairs window seat and enjoyed indoor and outdoor performances.
Comedians - Moses Ali Khan and Richart Pulsford - had me giggling :)
View from our window seat in the Beehive!
A stroll to find dinner - we ended up at TigerLily with this horse as our view - lush!
A wander to the castle for the Military Tattoo
Drinks and hugs with Tabitha!
The next morning we had a trip to the Book Festival which was exceptionally good!
Finally a bit of souvenir shopping...
And a Gin Fizz in the sunshine before heading to the airport.
And my favourite bit of the whole trip.... this... it makes the hairs on the back of my neck tingle.
