This day, the first day of spring 1960 my family moved
from the Midlands to Bournemouth
(a tad more modern by that time than in the card above!)
Each anniversary when we were little (and not so little)
mum used to take us to Fortes Cafe in Westover Road
where we had Knickerbocker Glory, then a walk through
The Gardens to the seafront. . .
I lived in Bournemouth until my early twenties
and my parents are both buried there.
They enabled us to have great opportunities
and build lives in a beautiful part of the country,
thanks so much for moving mum and dad!
I think I'm going to revive the tradition and
make a Knickerbocker Glory!
