The Carnival is Over .....

Well the lido season is coming to an end at any rate: sniff, sniff. Driving to Bourne yesterday afternoon for a last sit by the pool and swim in the leaf-strewn cool water - listening to 'sounds of the 70's' Tony Blackburn playing top 100 million trillion number ones, including The Seekers 'Carnival is Over' .... sweet nostalgia!

Bourne was hardly heaving - just me and couple of families - and the lifeguards were fulfilling their wide-ranging job descriptions by cleaning the equipment and bins.

Tonight is the last night if you want to catch this beautiful lido before it closes 'til May next year.

NO!!!!! I've got a secret plan in my head to troll off for last swim on Friday....how sad, will miss my post work dips at Bourne and the boys will miss the ice poles (favourite green, after extensive summer long research programme)

I LOVE that song - a true bittersweet, revel in the sadness, sing along/cry along kind of tune - "the harbour light is calling, this will be our last goodbye...."

Also try out Terry Jacks - Seasons in the Sun, and Bobby Goldsboro - Summer (The First Time) - pure bliss in a late summer breeze....
