Blowing up Royal Avenue

It is a grey and wet Saturday morning in Edinburgh, but how could I be downhearted on a day like this? This afternoon I will leave Edinburgh's dourness for warm and sunny Belfast! I can't wait to see the palm trees gently waving in the tropical breeze blowing up Royal Avenue from the harbor. Note to self: "blowing up Royal Avenue" is not the sort of phrase to use casually, even in post-Troubles Northern Ireland.
