Balloon on South Bridge

Today the weather's awful!! So instead of venturing out and spoiling my camera in the rain I thought I'd post this picture which I took on South Bridge a few days ago. The balloon is actually on a very long string, all the way down from the Cowgate - so the equivalent of about 8 stories!

Thank you for your kind words on my site today. The high school group leaves London early Thursday morning for Edinburgh. I don't think they will even notice the weather....it's been 105+ degrees here....AND they are away from home without mom and dad and having a blast! Happy Wednesday...

It's such a perfectly shaped dot against the white and blue sky - with a sparkle of sun!
