Oh I do like to be beside the seaside


This is the photograph I'd been intending to publish yesterday. It's been years since I last saw a boating pond in use, which is one of the reasons I think of Girvan as old-fashioned. No doubt I could be easily disabused of this notion.

I do find it rather reassuring that the pleasures I enjoyed as a boy still seem to bring pleasure to the young of today. Maybe I wasn't all that odd after all!

I loved the boats in Whiteinch park - and I was once late for hockey at Hughenden 'cos we went out in boats on Bingham's Pond in our lunch hour!

it looks rather like a boating race track! - never seen a boating pond like that before - must be my sheltered east-coast upbringing!
