Fireworks!

I was stumped what to share with you today, dear readers, because I have been laid up in bed sick for most of this week. PAH! But no worries, this is Edinburgh. Sometimes, the wonder of this town comes to you. I started to feel a little better so had moved to the couch. After dinner, we heard an odd noise outside. And then again, and again.
     "That sounds like fireworks?"
     Indeed it was.
     Turns out the end of the 2016 Edinburgh International Festival was being celebrated with a Virgin Money Fireworks Concert on Calton Hill...which is right up the hill from our flat. This was our view. We got to see the whole thing. The ball of light on the left side of 'our tree' is the moon. The ball of light on the right is the fireworks show getting going.
     The show got bigger and higher - we really did get to see the whole thing from our living room window. But this shot with the moon was the coolest of them all! In all the nearby flats we could see our neighbors enjoying the show too. Any excuse to celebrate - that's Edinburgh. I love it here. :)
