One of moms favorite remembrances is going to the beach when she still lived in England.
As a child the trip to the beach would have probably been only once a year when her dads workmen group would hire a bus for the day and take families to the beach for a holiday. That would have been from the Yorkshire area. One of her favorites was Filey.
This first picture is my mom with the swim cap on with nieces and a nephew in the water.
It seems many times it was just to go to the beach for the day, and maybe walk in the surf.
Maybe the younger ones got in more.
We were there in 2010 and the water had not warmed up much.
Nothing over dressed for the day about these two.
This is my dad, never a large man, holding my mom on his shoulders.
This would have probably been the late 40's or early 50's.
My brother at this same age could have walked right into the picture they looked so much a like.
