I remember a majestic time, simple and happier then now. An agenda consisted of eat, play, sleep. Life as a four year old boy was carefree, joyful, eternally having fun. Although my memory may now be faded; one distinctive will always remain planted in my brain. A time of summer holidays spent entirely at my favourite place, which I keep close to my heart; special only to me.
