Flashback Friday - Barton Springs

LtoR - my Sister, my youngest cousin at the back, me seated, my older cousin

This is my Flashback Friday this week....no, it's not the auditions for the film Dumb & Dumber, despite the dodgy bowl cut hairdos...this is a picture of my two cousins, my older Sister and I at Barton Springs in Bedfordshire.  I'm no good with ages and dates but I reckon this was taken about 28-30 years ago.

My cousins still live in Luton but we moved up to North Wales when Mum was expecting me.  My Sister and I always went down to Luton to stay with Nan & Grandad and loved our time with our cousins.

My Nan took us out this day to Barton Springs which is situated in the Barton Hills (part of the Chilterns) which are near the village of Barton-Le-Clay.

I actually remember this day vividly.  We took plastic cups to drink the spring water and had such good fun there.   My Nan took this photo - sadly she passed away a few years ago now before I had my daughter.  I wish she had been able to see her beautiful Great Grandaughter.

I'm the one sitting down in the middle.  Jeez, if only my legs had stayed so svelte!

Now head over to Karin's place at Cafebebe and check out all the other entries...
