The subject is Weekly Image of Life: Summertime Blast!
I know the family archive has a few family photos of my dad and my Aunt Esther as they enjoyed a day at the beach!
If my dad and aunt were anything like my siblings and me, they probably left their house early in the morning.
Based on where they lived, the drive might have taken around an hour. They would have packed food, drinks and towels; not much more than that.
Here is my lovely Aunt Esther (right) and her friend Angie (left). I don’t know much about Angie, but she is seen in a number of family photos. I plan on asking my dad more about her when I visit my family next month.
In the picture below my dad is on the lower left. I don’t know the person on the lower right. Another question to ask my dad!
When I see these pictures of may dad and aunt having fun, I’m reminded of my five siblings and me playing in the sand as little kids, then, when we were older, having a blast swimming in the ocean.
There’s something about the atmosphere, the waves and the sun that can bring out the playfulness in all of us!
I enjoy looking at pictures of my dad showing his playful side.
Meaning, when I was growing up, I knew my dad had a great sense of humor…but as a businessman he wore suits. This gave him a serious look.
These pictures, taken when he was young, show a very different side of him which I find refreshing.
I’ll leave you with another lovely image of my Aunt Esther as she’s enjoying a walk at the beach. She looks so vibrant but also relaxed.
Family, friends, sun and sand – a real Summertime Blast!
