It's still November ...

... but Edinburgh is gearing up for Christmas - big time.  The east end of Princes Street Gardens is brimming over with festive things - carousels, a huge ferris wheel, helter-skelters, ice skating rink, wooden stalls selling trinkets, crafts, warming Alpine drinks and German sausages and foodstuffs, Christmas trees with twinkling lights, candy canes, scary fairground rides - you name it, Edinburgh has got it!  Nearer to Christmas there will probably be some reindeer in the mix somewhere!  It's all good fun, just a bit on the early side, for me,
I think this penguin is enjoying one of the things I love most about Edinburgh - a view to the hills.

  1. Looks pretty fab to me. Unlike over here, too warm to be Christmas.
    Love the penguin...he'd be more at home here on Phillip Island. :) x
