The mentioning of Green park on another thread prompted an old memory.
When I was quite young, maybe three or four years old, (definitely pre school,) I remember holding my dad's hand as we walked through one of the London parks. (I can't remember which one.) It must have been early spring because there were daffodils in bloom. It was a breezy day and I was fascinated by the patterns the wind was making on the surface of what was either a small lake or large pond. I remember asking, "What's that," and pointing in the general direction. My dad, thinking I was referring to the buildings in the distance replied, "Bayswater." For a few years after that I thought that wavy, choppy water was called, 'bays' water.'
I wondered if anyone else has childhood memories of anything similar.
