Lido days

There'll be a lot of posts from the UK like this today, I imagine. Summer's been a long time coming. And now it's here. Felt like we were on holiday.
Photos from Parliament Hill Lido, on Hampstead Heath.

  1. Lido is a pool? That's awesome. I used to have a Lido, but he was a cat. He lived an exciting life, was even once stolen by a prostitute who worked at a brothel down the road (but I got him back). Sadly, he was run over by a truck. He was a great little guy. Your Lido looks fun! Kellie xx

  2. The one of your little monkey "tanning" with the sunglasses on is too cute.

  3. Gosh Francesca what beautiful photographs. The water looks so blue! Sounds like a brilliant day. Our nearest lido is about 20 miles away, but I must make the effort to go now. x

  4. That looks fun! Our outdoor opens in June. Must remember to buy Sam and Scott speedos as we were refused entry last time with shorts. Scott is not happy about this :) p.s. I don't know how to reply on my posts so Sam didn't have a balance bike but his bike is the only one he can ride on our stone drive - which was the incentive x

  8. Was about to comment but I'm laughing too much now from Kellie's comment :)) How hilarious!
    Lovely lido pics. I had heard about the amazing weather... it does look like you're on holiday and very un-British! Enjoy this time. Hopefully an early summer means it'll be all lovely and chilly come Sept! ;) Kx

  10. Fantastic pictures. Looks like the weather in London is way better than ours at the moment. I didn't know there was a Lido in Hampstead Heath - I went to the ponds once but felt a bit strange to be swimming next to the ducks.

  12. Great lido! And beautiful pictures. Our nearest lido used to be open to the public but is now members only. Perfect in this heat.
