Along the Water of Leith

A phone call yesterday radically changed our plans for this week and beyond. We felt the need for a wee trip out today. We parked at the Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and had a splendid lunch in the cafe.Afterwards Jan & I went for a walk along the river to Stockbridge.We watched a heron and other birds and enjoyed the combination of lovely natural scenery
and beautiful buildings like this one in the Dean Village

This gate caught our eye too-

We looked round some of the Stockbridge shops including the excellent Oxfam bookshop before walking back to the car via Ann Street , it was a good trip out.
