Tour and festival round up (better late than never!)

 Part One:No excuses, I keep taking pictures and thinking I must do my BLOG then work beckons and I feel constantly guilty that I should be finishing of my writing or art work.
So here's a quick round up of the MANY fabulous people I met and things I've been up to over the summer and autumn.
Here's some pics from...Edinburgh
Lily writing in the yurt.
