For the last 3 days I have been back up in Edinburgh to the Fringe Festival, helping flyer, poster and drum up the crowds to my friends play – Firing Blanks. (Underbelly, 3:35 if you’re interested nudge nudge wink wink)
But mainly it’s been a chance to meet up with the boyf and go exploring extinct volcano’s and wet ourselves at stand-up comics.
I put my brave face on and with a gulp accepted to try and tackle the famous Arthurs Seat, a magnificent volcano plug in a scoop shape that a rather large giant could place his booty in. Climbing wasn’t actually too bad, in fact it was rather exhilarating. I do rather like a bit of geography and wow there sure were some magnificent examples of rock formations to warm my toes with … anywho.. maybe just enjoy the pictures.
And.. after coming down the mountain and settling down to a cuppa tea, we were treated to a free show: a pirate in a ‘treasure chest’ scaring and ‘arrrr’ing to passers by – Hilarious! On the right, the huge grassy lounge of the Pasture.
Just down this road was a brilliant vintage shop, will show you inside soon but for now, I’m travelling back home 🙁 Till next year!
