A Walk Down Memory Lane July 8, 2009

Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane

Come for a walk with me down Memory Lane!
And if you have a "Memory Lane" post, head on over to Scottsville to join in on the fun!

I'm joining Erica over at Scottsville for a Memory Lane post today. As I've mentioned before, I love the ocean. I think it all started way back when I was a kid.

Our family would go camping every summer at a favorite place on the ocean. I took my hubby out there to show it to him before we got married. We've been their once since then. It is still my favorite ocean camp ground and beach.

Here's my sis and me in July of 1963. I was five and she was eight. I think those bathing suits were made of cotton. Black and white pictures bring out a good old fashioned feeling. Too bad they are so small, but that is what I was able to get.

We loved getting all sandy and washing off in the ocean and doing it again. We are holding up Razor Clam shells. I'm sure dad had us do that. He was a bit of a photographer. That's a 1960's action shot, he he!

Hope this brings back good memories for you. I just want to go camping there again.
