Last day in Edinburgh

Sunday was our last day here and almost the last day of the Festival. Sadly, we could not stay for the fireworks on Monday evening so I missed the chance to improve on my firework photography. We met up with friends for coffee, a trip to the farmers’ market and returned to St Bernard’s Well which is only open for a couple of days each year. It was built in 1789 to a design by the Edinburgh landscape painter Alexander Nasymth who is said to have been inspired by the Temple of Vesta at Tivoli in Italy. Last year I only photographed the interior so here it is, by the Water of Leith:

We met up for drinks at the Roxburghe early evening as James thought that the comedy act we were to see at 8pm was at the Assembly Rooms. It turned out that is was at George Square so we grabbed a taxi and headed over there. At least it was a shorter walk back to the flat at the end.
