Awoken memories

So I have just been to Legoland... Boooo... for the first time though (I dont get down here that often)...

There was a nagging sensation of my being there before though... Then I realised as I was sat watching the planes taking off with my son (aged 5), and suddenly I was transported back to summer 1977 (me aged 5)... Watching Concord (I can still remember hearing the sonic boom as it disappeared off in the distance), I can even remember I cut my finger whilst learning how to spin coke can ring pulls with my cousins (remember doing that)...

Confirmed it with my old dad..How sad that this all passed me by!

i) Didn't know that Windsor Safari Park had gone
ii) Legoland is the Phoenix from the ashes!

Whatever happened to Winnie?!?

To be fair not a lot I was only 5... I think my mum has some photos somewhere, I will dig them out and and get them scanned.

I dont actually remember seeing Winnie, I remember the aquarium but really Concord stole the show... :?
