The Edinburgh Fringe- August 2019

After years of meaning to go, it takes my daughter to drag me off for a city break to the Edinburgh festival!

We are off in the bus for our two day adventure.

First stop is the craft markets and a nice garden, where we start our Christmas shopping and takes in views of the castle.

Extra full of life, this string quintet take the stage on some random steps up a bendy street and are very talented. So we stop for lunch opposite to enjoy their music.Evie studies most of the poster boards that we pass (a lot!) and generally does 1-2 full circles around each one to ensure they are fully studied!

Then we come across these stretchy mirrors so enjoy playing with our images a while.

Mini Evie and mini mummy

Walking up to the castle, where we are allowed past the first set of gates. When Evie’s older we can come back and see the tattoo and visit the castle properly.

Back down the cobbled royal street….

…. stopping to appreciate most of the buskers en route…… having a little fancy if they are good!

Then having a dance on a roundabout… of course!

Into one of the big garden set ups, that’s better, benches to walk along.

Omi takes Evie home whilst I meet Paul, my cousin for a show. On the way home we encounter a silent disco walking the streets – bizarre but cool. Maybe one day…

The next morning we go and see Mr Men and Little Miss show, and Evie manages half an hour before sitting is just too much. But we hang around, she runs off some energy and then Little Miss Naughty come out so Evie gets to meet her personally!

Time for some lunch after all that running around before heading home

Running round and round the upside down cow!

How exhausting!! So exhausted she didn’t even realise a bus journey occurred!

Hope to see you again soon Edinburgh.
