SZ0891 : Bournemouth: where the balloon base used to be

Bournemouth: where the balloon base used to be
Bournemouth: where the balloon base used to be
For ten years or so, the tethered balloon was a familiar sight in Bournemouth's Lower Gardens - either as the large balloon looming large as one walked past, or as a blob in the sky from many miles around.

It was removed in the early summer of 2016 and there was talk that it was perhaps temporary, but it is indeed not coming back. Here, we look along the Gardens past the former base of the balloon - the lawn has been re-landscaped and there is no real inkling that it has ever been any different.

SZ0891 : Bournemouth: coming in to land for a downward view to the base from the balloon in flight; and
SZ0891 : Bournemouth: the balloon is missing for a view in June 2016, just after the balloon was removed.
