Flashback Friday-A splash of nostalgic self indulgence!

I suppose all of us have different but wonderful memories of our childhood favourite places, a time of freedom and with  little responsibilty except to find exciting things to do. Summers always seemed long and hot so my very favourite thing to do was spend as much time as possible at the outdoor Lido in a lovely park in London.  A short walk from my home, down past my school church, Holy Trinity, and into the gates of the park. past the stunning Brockwell Hall where we would have our lunch and then down to the Lido to meet friends and spend the day swimming and sunning ourselves. Brockwell Lido opened in 1937 and is still going strong, much posher now but one of the only few remaining open air Lidos in London. Below are a few photos of Brockwell Park and the Lido where I spent a lot of my young life, such wonderful memories!
