Green was a popular colour at the Kings Meadow open air pool in its former glory. These lovely old lockers aren't there any more but there are touches of the vintage colours throughout the new development
It's pouring in Glasgow - I'd rather be on the lido with my cold drink 🍹On our last #cruise we had an AI drinks package so the enjoyment was unlimited 😜❤️⚓️🛳 We do usually book at least the soft drinks package if not the alcohol containing one. Anything that makes the final bill seem less scary 😁#lidolife#cruiseship#drinksinthesun #
How to stay chubby on your cruise, day 7. Book a personal delivery by your friendly local #vegan baker 🌱❤️👍 We met our cake dealer, the lovely Yessica #mrswheelmakerbakes near the port & chatted cruise and vegan living in Gibraltar. So far we've had one each of the PB & banana cupcakes (4 in box) and those were so soft, so good and definitely decadent. Clear winner for the 'best cake' prize this holiday. Check out her Facebook page if you need vegan cake in Gibraltar ❤️🌱#wfve#sipsikaljavegaani#cupcake#cruise

Any tips for future vegan adventures in #Italy ? #vegancruiser#holiday#excursion#daytrip
Here's a corner of one of the original changing rooms, just imagine all the hundreds of Bathonians right back to Georgian times who have de-robed here into thier swimmers. During the 18th century women wore a long flannel shift while bathing, sometimes with lead weights sewn into the hem to keep the skirts from floating up. 🙈👙
Hearing the wonderful #clevelandpools memories of Bath residents makes us long for their opening day even more... "I swam in the Cleveland pools in the mid 1940s. I remember the blue, blue water sweeping in a curve, quite unlike any of the other pools in Bath. I tried to see how long I could stay underwater in this lovely world. Well, I was only 8! We changed our clothes in the cabins, not thinking for a moment that anything might get stolen. It didn’t then. The water was cold but it was the same as the river. We used to jump in the river, swim around a bit, then climb back into the pool. The banks surrounding the main pool were always full of people having picnics or just sitting there watching. You had to pick your way through them. It was a peaceful place. The splashing and shouting of children was all part of the sense of calm. And all in the open air!" Simon Campbell Jones (stunning 📷 from @johnnysnell 🙌🏻)
Nicky, #SLSCvolunteer and Summer Handicapper. "If you love #tootingbeclido and benefit from SLSC membership, I think it's important to put something back. I don't want to race, but I'm happy to help others who do by organising handicaps and timekeeping at Sunday morning races so that the trophies are won not necessarily by the fastest swimmers but those who have improved their times. It's very rewarding to help others achieve their ambitions whether it's to swim a width or a mile"
It may not be the best day to think about a hot tub but here is a shot of the #thameslido tub. Come rain or shine we think you won't be able to resist this hot tub when we are open...
Missing my #shipvisit day onboard the fab #celebrityeclipse ❤️Such sunny Sunday in Southampton and a great day out on the lawn deck - got to hang out with the awesome @emmacruises too! We're both seriously cruise sick & missing the seas. Not long now till we get to head out to our prospective cruises. When are you sailing next and what ship?🛳 Mine will be the new #TUIDiscovery2 by @thomsoncruises ⚓️ #cruiseblog#holiday#lidolife#liferingselfie
The #clevelandpools are full of hidden corners and forgotten stories...did you know for example that they once housed a very different type of swimmer 🐟🐟🐟?! When attempts to get them reopened failed in 1984 they became a trout farm. A local recalls them fondly. "My son Charlie and I used to go to the Trout Farm most Fridays to fish for our supper and for Saturday’s lunch; they were so good we couldn’t get enough of them! On the radio I’d heard this really simple way of cooking trout. You rinsed them under the tap, wrapped them in two sheets of newspaper (Evening Chronicle in those days), saturated the paper under the tap, then straight into a hot oven for 20 minutes. This contained the smell and the fish were perfect every time – and what a perfect location to go fishing. Charlie was so envious that I’d known it in its heyday in the sixties when it was known as the Cleveland Baths. My friends and I used to walk from Lower Weston. I always took my favourite lettuce sandwiches and cherry flavoured Corona…. the baths were such fun on hot days - which were many - but the water was heart-stoppingly cold when you first got in!” Wendy Morray Jones
An early anniversary present pre-cruise from MrVegancruiser ❤️⚓️ I don't get to wear any jewellery at work so this is ideal #cruisewear 😊 I hope it is not just me collecting all things nautical #ahoymatey - any other cruiseaddicts out there with cruise on the brain...and in your wardrobe? 🌊🛳⚓️ ❤️#cruiselife#holiday#cruiseaddict#cruise
Happy Saturday! Anyone heading to the #cinema this weekend? #PrincessCruises had the best onboard movie set-up.. every evening staff would put out red mattresses on the sun loungers by the pool (with the massive screen) with these headrests. There were blankets too on offer if chilly and they would go round with bags of free popcorn too! I know that is one cinema I'd love to go back to - who's with me and what would you like to see? Pitch Perfect or something else funny for me 😁#cruiseship#lido#takemeback#weekendwanderlust#moviesunderthestars
