On our last day in Edinburgh, I saw this on a stage at the Festival Fringe:
When I saw “Cream of the Crop” (the name of a fictional game show), I thought, “That’s a creme de la creme title for tomorrow’s post.”
That post title rose to the top, for me, because:
- this vacation/holiday has been the cream of the crop in so many ways,
- on our last day at the 2015 Festival Fringe we had many cream-of-the-crop experiences, and
- that title allows me to just post the best-of-the-best photos I took yesterday, before we leave the hotel to catch a really early plane to return home to Boston, USA.
Here’s the cream of yesterday’s crop:
I don’t have time to separate out and explain each of those cream-of-the-crop photos, but I will tell you we saw wonderful performances yesterday — including Sanctuary and Pop Pop — and we ate some great food at the Vittoria Restaurant (owned by Tony on the right, above).
One thing that was missing, before yesterday, was the cream of the crop local Edinburgh comedian, Tom Joyce, whom my son Aaron and I had luckily encountered during our two previous visits to the Festival Fringe.
Yesterday was such a cream of the crop day, that we ran into Tom when we left the restaurant …
… and then got to see him on stage as a member of The Improverts.
If you’ve read a bumper crop of my previous posts, you’d know that I LOVE fireworks. Sure enough, on our final night in Edinburgh, i saw those, too:
Here’s to next August in Edinburgh, lads and lassies, and Auld Lang Syne.
Top thanks to my son Aaron, to my ex-sister-in-law Deborah, to Susanne Sulby for Sanctuary, to Penny Greenhalgh for Pop Pop, to Tony and Angela at Vittore, to Tom Joyce, to the Improverts, to the Scottish people, to the wonderful city of Edinburgh, to all the performers and other folk who helped make our stay here so magical, and to you — of course! — for being Cream of the Crop readers, every one.
