Boxing Day Day

For the uninitiated, that’s the day after Boxing Day.

  I spent the day with Edinburgh brother and Edinburgh Christmas lights.  Both well worth seeing.

The highlight of the day was a ride on the big wheel.  Not as high as the London Eye, (visited twice by me, once in daylight and once by night) but more scary because the capsules were open to the sky and elements.  Not that we had many elements – little breeze, cool temperatures but good visibility.  I suppose that’s the most important thing.  Princes Street looked quite different from that angle, the Scot Monument seemed within touching distance and the ice rink far below resembled a Lowry painting.

A quick walk (in my case not too quick) up Carlton Hill completed the day.  My photos from the various view points were interesting and well worth keeping.

May you all have a blessed 2013.
