Menoffagainorrhoea - just a wee outing

Last Saturday, Mac1 came and had lunch with the father and myself; she had been out on her Park Run. Something she has taken up a mere four months ago and is surprising herself. After Lunch, it being a braw autumn day, she offered to take us to see the park.

Figgate Park is a place I was ignorant of even from when I was a full-time Edinburgh resident third of a century ago. It is a grand wee place!!! Father and I truly enjoyed our outing, all the more now for being able to picture Mac1 as she runs each Saturday morning. (Watch out for more on her activity as I shall be coming over to support her in November on a larger, more important run for charity.) The whole ParkRun organisation is admirable and socially meaningful.

Now, you know that the Fudge had to come with. It took nearly 60 images! Quite a few of them are even usable. Some here, more on Monday and Tuesday.


  1. Oh, definitely usable. Since there is no need to pick, I won't, but it's a toss up among the swan, the two walkers, and the stream under the tree.

  2. What a lovely day…the photos are great

    Your Pals,

  4. I love this park and your photos are great!!! will the swan change his feather to white once or will his feathers stay this way?

      This is a sygnet and the feathers will turn all white by end of this year. Isn't it beautiful though?! Yxx

  5. What a lovely day for a family outing. The close of of the swan is very pretty.

  6. Ah, so green. We had a freeze last night! Winter in coming!!! xx

  7. What beautiful lush park!! Love the bridge/reflection, along with all the other lovely captures!

  8. Good evening!
    What a gem and the Fudge did it so well! janice xx
