Another celebration of the 4th of July on Portobello Beach in Edinburgh, Scotland.  A windy day, but the rain held off until we were getting ready to leave, this is Scotland in the Summer.  We had BBQs lit, and friends meeting to share food and a chat.  Thanks to all who came and we will see you next year.
