Summertime in Glasgow

I love this time of year in Glasgow; the city is at its best. When it's sunny, the weather is perfect and the sun doesn't until set well after 10.00pm.

My gorgeous friend Claire, touching up her make up. I think this photo was taken around 2.00am outside a house party.


The beer garden at the Clutha Vaults. God, I love this place. It's a perfect mix of down and out derelicts and lawyers slumming it after work. A typical Glaswegian hole-in-the-wall perfect for drinking in on a summer's night.

Dinner at Guy's Restaurant with Big John singing jazz tunes.

Last week, Paul and I went to dinner at Guy's Restaurant and without a doubt, it was one of the best meals I have ever had in Glasgow. I couldn't decide what to have so I went for not one, not two but THREE (3!) starters.

It's a little pricey (hey, I still think in Canadian money) but well worth it. Best meal I've had in years, hands down.

Paul at the Clutha and no lie, this photo was taken at 9.00pm

And when it comes to summertime in Glasgow, no song is more quintessential than this (and must be cranked up as loud as your neighbours allow):
