Rather than catch the 23 bus, I jumped onto the back saddle of a 4-person tandem. This would, I hope, take me through Leith, up Bonnington Road, and home.
Instead the route was along the promenade at Portobello, then east into the Lammermuir Hills. The ‘driver’ had a hopeless sense of direction and kept forgetting to steer. I would never make it home by 10:45 to wave off my weekend guests.
