Thursday Challenge; Peaceful

Today's Thursday Challenge is all about PEACEFUL (Calm, Relaxed, Sleeping, Landscapes, Water,...)

On our Edinburgh trip my sister and I went for a walk along the water of Leith. I read about Dean Village and how lovely it was supposed to be. So on a gorgeous day with blue skies and plenty of sunshine to go around we walked along a wonderful and peaceful river of Leith. If you go to Edinburgh one day yourself we highly recomend it! It's gorgeous!

 Just lovely with all the blossom

 This bird flew into the water, dove in fishing and flew back onto a branch. No idea what it is but it looked like a swallow or someting

 Waterfall


 Lovely with the sun and Spring colours


 Dean Village


 Yet another brigde, we walked following the river

Thursday Challenge; Beautiful

This Thursday the Challenge is "BEAUTIFUL" (People, Animals, Flowers, Cars, Houses,...)


Greyfriars Bobby story is a sad story

Greyfriars Bobby was a Skye Terrier who became known in 19th-century Edinburgh for supposedly spending 14 years guarding the grave of his owner until he died himself on 14 January 1872. The story continues to be well known in Scotland, through several books and films, and a prominent commemorative statue and nearby graves act as a tourist attraction.

Edinburgh Spring Flowers

I'm still working on my photos but I've made some of the lovely bluebells and some other flowers. I've always wanted to see the bluebells bloom in Spring in the UK and it's a beautiful sight!
