Breakfast with a view over the Meadows this morning, as the rain continues to fall across the city.
I’m back at one of my favourite deli’s in the city, Hugo Victor. I only wish the circumstances were better.
Back to normality today, and into work as we start to get back into a routine. But as we are still visiting Sick Kids daily for now I’m sure we will be popping into this cafe from time to time.
Victor Hugo Delicatessen is situated just around the corner from the hospital, and the nearest place we found to get good coffee. The home cooking is great too, if you don’t mind a bit of a wait, as a sign reads, ‘We don’t do fast food‘. However with views across the Meadows park it’s a great place to wait.
A windy day in the Meadows today. Between visits to Sick kids a walk around the park for my wife and I certainly blew away the cobwebs, as well as most of the leaves of these huge trees.
I love this time of year for the low sun and long shadows. Both of which I have caught with this sketch from a late afternoons walk through the Meadows park in Edinburgh’s city centre.
I’m back, and after a few days away it’s good to be sketching again. Staying close to James, who is improving daily and thankyou for the well wishes, this was my morning view from Millerfield Place, looking onto the Meadows Park.
More sketches from this beautiful area of Edinburgh will be sure to follow.
I have been spending some time at Edinburgh’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children, or Sick Kids recently as my wee boy recovers from a bump to the head (All is going well, thanks). Across the green space that is the meadows there is a cycle and walk way that climbs the hill from the park towards Lauriston Place, through what used to be the Royal Infirmary.
My sketch shows the new development, including a Starbucks, and the old Infirmary buildings on the right which I presume are being developed into flats?
