A Visit to the park in 1979

Post by heather1979 » Sun May 10, 2009 1:45 am

Hi there

I visited the park in 1979, as a 10 year old child (exactly 30 years ago today !).

I'm writing up my journal from then, as a blog (http://heather1979.wordpress.com). So you might like to see today's entry http://heather1979.wordpress.com/2009/0 ... -may-1979/ . There are a few photos there.

I've also got a copy of the guide book from then. Would you be interested in a scan of that ?

I didn't realise the park had closed, until I looked for it on the web today when writing my blog.

Heather.

Hi Falkor

That was my 1 and only visit - we were visiting from Australia, so no further opportunities.

I'll send you pictures of the guide book :D
