As we left home it was bright and sunny, but the weather coming from the west, and travelling in the general direction of NB, did not look promising! We decided to go for it anyway. We had umbrellas in the boot of the car! A debatable decision, but in the end we had an enjoyable wander around, in rain and shine. And there were some really good skies!
The only performer I really wanted to see in the festival line up was Joan Armatrading, but stupidly I left it too late - tickets are all sold out! And no returns so far.Where there is usually a jumble of small sailing boats, a couple of Spiegletents, a lovely Airstream trailer, and a collection of stalls and bars have sprung up.
And the sun shone on the snowy white plumage of the gannets, covering the surface of the Bass Rock.
