Scotland on a Saturday.

October 9, 2010  |  Featured Posts

This morning we were in Edinburgh – all three of us had hair appointments and the dog was being clipped.

National Art Gallery

The art gallery sits on the side of Princes Street where the gardens run the full length with the break for the gallery.

Going up the mound.

The mound runs up round the back of the Art Gallery and meets the Royal Mile.  The Royal Mile is the street that runs from Edinburgh Castle at the top and Holyrood Palace at the bottom.

Warming Up.

When we went to our usual baker shop we walked past this pitch where the players were warming up for a rugby match.

That’s it for today.  I’ll be back on Monday with poem of the week and details of my next giveaway.  I’m going to include a non stitching item in the giveaway for a change.

Thanks for stopping by and for the continued comments, they mean a lot to me and I appreciate every one.  Enjoy your weekend.
