Bournemouth Gardens

A Memory of Bournemouth

When I was a child, my parents and my two brothers went to Bournemouth every
year for 2 weeks holiday. I have nothing but happy memories of Bournemouth and Boscombe and the surrounding towns. I am now nearly 56 but I still long to go back in time and revisit the places as they used to be. I still go on holiday to
Bournemouth. I think its my favourite place in the whole world, and now that my father is no longer with us, all my memories feature him. I love him and miss him.
The gardens were wonderful. There was a small paddling lake and my brothers
would take their toy boats there and push them along. Happy happy days that
I miss so much.
