The Gallery - A Memory

The Gallery prompt this week is A Memory, this is actually really hard because there are some many to choose from.


I though long and hard about this and decided to just look through my photo's to see what popped in my head and this is what I found.


This was taken in 2007, so pre BG. Me and OH had decided to take a trip to Skegness, it was our first trip to the seaside together.


It was a very windy and cold day but that didn't stop us having fun. We walked along the seafront, spent far to much money in the arcades (OH learnt about my addiction to penny slots), I made him play bingo.


On our walk back to the car with our freshly made doughnuts there was a crowd of people looking and staring at the fountain, we had to have a look of course.


Someone had added some sort of bubble mixture to the water in the fountain and this it what happened....




It's one of the funniest things I'd ever seen.


For me one of the strongest things that evokes memories for me is music, the album Lost Highway by Bon Jovi had just been realised so I had been listening it to death and annoying OH with it. I couldn't write this post without leaving you with a track from the album, I though this one was apt...


You Want To Make A Memory!!
