House Beautiful

A Memory of Bournemouth

I have some lovely memories of House Beautiful, me and my 4 sisters were sent there to give my widowed mum a break and us a holiday. I loved the daily walks to the beach, especially going down the zigzag path with shells in the walls, and when it rained sitting in the playroom listening to a recording of 'Peter and the Wolf'. I didn't much like the dorms with the peepot in the middle of the room though, lol. I loved playing in the garden on the swings and watching the overhead tram lines spark, coming from Surrey I hadn't seen anything like it before.
