A Big thanks and well done to all the bands that performed (Early Shift, Bad Monkey, Kirstyn Knowles, The Remedy, The Jack, Skellum and Kipper. Also special thanks go to Gavin for all the hard working organizing this once again.
So I just happened to upload this picture on to my flickr pages in the early hours of the morning,
not because of talk like a pirate day, but as part of my general sorting out of my photos taken over the Summer.
However because of the pirate theme, it has made it's way onto the "Interesting" page on flickr!

We went on a cycle ride around town today in the Sunshine and Rachel spotted the blossoms on this tree. I definitely feel that spring is in the air, especially as we'll start to get more sunshine in the evenings when the clocks go forward tonight
Sunset over the Forth and Union Canal
This was taken from the Lemmington Lift Bridge, looking West.
I caught the sun setting over the canal, I love the contrast of angular lines of the soon to be demolished brewery on the right and the raggard roof lines of the flats on the left.
