Walks this week have included a quick spin round the Eildons on a misty morning before work, snails at sunset and then a walk from Colinton to Tollcross along the canal and via the very nearly finished Colinton tunnel mural project.

Scotland hasn't had a Covid 19 death in over a month, schools have been back a week and there is only ever the odd sporadic case in the Borders now. On the flip side Melrose (nice wee attractive market town) was strewn with disposable masks today and people returning at speed from France to try and beat the quarantine deadline blamed the government for forcing them to drive dangerously...! Our First Minister continuously reminds people that life shouldn't feel like normal at the moment, yet people seem to desperately cling onto their normal, whether that is pub crawls or the annual week in the sun.

Edinburgh was lit up with beacons of light over the weekend as part of "My light shines on" - the beams were to represent the ghost lights left on in empty theatres and they were placed around the Edinburgh venues which should of been bursting into life with the start of the festival this weekend. Instead Edinburgh's streets were eerily quiet and we wandered up an empty High Street to the castle esplanade on a beautiful still summers night.
