The Lucky Woman

Sandra's stroll down memory lane during her last visit to Bexhill
where as a child she lived with her family until they migrated to Oz in '54,
little knowing that one evening in years to come beneath the star strewn Milky Way
she would ultimately meet the love of her life and her sheltered world would never be the same again.

Actually Stephen, she was invited to stay in London by a travelmate she had met on a trip to Antarctica in 2004, who turned out to be something of a disappointment.
Nevertheless she did get to see "Cliveden" of Christine Keeler / Profumo notoriety, where her travelmate lady in question owned an apartment.
Sandra did not tell me whether she went for a dip in the "secret garden" swimming pool where scandalous parties were held!

Re: The Lucky Woman

Mark, Touche'!




But I have to say that I fear that "your second image of 'Cliveden' is not

The first Fountain is Cliveden "The Fountain of Love" modeled on the Fountains of Versailles Palace in Paris - but the second fountain I have not see at Cliveden on TWO VISITS to Cliveden this year

Re: The Lucky Woman

I very much like the Bexhill images, Mark, particularly No 5.

The ones of Cliveden are great memories too and Chevvy is quite right - you have two stately homes there, each with its own fountain. The first house is Cliveden and the first fountain is at Cliveden but the second house is Waddesden Manor, near Aylesbury, in Buckinghamshire and the second fountain is in those grounds. The clock tower is again at Cliveden!

Regards,
Ann1e

Sandra has scalded me for a whole bunch of misinformation, John !
Firstly, she tells that she did take a swim in the infamous swimming pool although with complete propriety, of course!
Secondly, she confirmed that the first fountain belongs to Waddesden Manor as Annie says.
Thirdly, the last pic is Brighton Pier, there's none at Bexhill!

Thanks Amanda - maybe a nice place for you to camp on your next mobile home getaway, eh!

Thanks for the detail and for putting me right, Annie. I should have checked first before posting!

Good series. Means something to me. Born Portslade-by-Sea - mum from Hove dad from Worthing. Migrated to Oz in 1951/52. Visited in 1992 and have great memories of all my distant family.

Re: The Lucky Woman

Glad Sandra had a good trip back over her childhood home, the pictures certainly show the best of the area.
