Thursday 24 July 2014: Monsieur L'artiste

Yes indeed, what has arrived in Granton but a lovely little folkboat crewed by some arty dude and his family. It's normally berthed at Eyemouth, but they're now spending a few weeks holidaying round the Forth. And holiday weather it was indeed, once again. The haar showing signs of dispersing late morning, I decided a sail was in order y'see despite having nae pal to chum me. But there was old Jack! Looking for crew? he enquired. Well, I wasn't really, but why not. And he'd a big punnet of strawberries with him! So, off we set. And a great sail - just round Inchcolm and back across. Took some cracking photos of the sparkly loveliness of the sea today, but this was just too colourful to ignore.
And later on, a pint sitting on the pavement in the sun outside Teuchters. I've got to rest that leg!
