It’s nearly time for a visit to this place. I’ve been riding/driving past it for around 15 years now and watched as it slowly fades into decrepitude and is overrun with weeds and rot. This photo was taken a year ago and I know at some point I’m going find it gone and replaced with a Carrefour. I’m not sure how I’ll feel. At it’s simplest it’s a visual marker of finally being on holiday, it’s a sense of reassurance and of course it is gloriously beautiful, though mixed with a delicious whiff of pathos. I’d hope it’s simply left to crumble, burying itself, with itself.
