Nicola was first lady though did not have a fine race: she nearly stopped due to a tight and sore hamstring which she is watching, with the European Championships (marathon) coming up.
Missed shot of the day.
I was going up the train (to avoid squawking children) and noticed this old guy nodding off incongruously beside "The Worlds Fastest Cars" and thought I've got to get a pic of that. (So Jim Ramsay, I know.) Anyway he woke up a bit as I returned and I missed the shot and for my sins had to sit near the squawking kids (American) and their Mom who was saying she was really annoyed when a stranger shooshed her kids loudly on the plane. No kidding? (To be fair they settled and robbed me of a punch line.)
Big wide empty beach. Just down the road (Gullane and Yellowcraigs) it was hoaching. The mile from the car park makes the difference.
Here is a shot I promised Ray that I'd rip off from him only it was such a while ago I forgot exactly what he posted. Dandelion close up. Probably much like this only better.
I passed this running couple taking photos earlier then they overtook while I chatted to Neil. Saw them again here just before NB taking pics.
The turn off at stink farm was overgrown. I have been suffering from the Stuart Hay Fever but trying to amuse myself by reciting famous artists when sneezing, Matisse and Titian being top choices.
I have been saddened and troubled by this for a couple of days; goodness knows how the families of those involved begin to come to terms with it.
