Our busy vacation schedule

So much to do, so little time.  The Grumpy Ole Man and I have a full day of activities:

We'll start the morning with a little surf bathing . . . . 

. . . then, after breakfast, take a stroll along the beach promenade . . . .

. . . . have our photograph taken with the local wildlife . . . .

 . . . . pause for a delicious picnic on the beach before . . . . . 

 . . . . a vigorous bout of wind surfing . . . . .

. . . go into town to explore the local scenery from a horse-drawn trolley . . . . 

 . . . . . and do a bit of souvenir shopping . . . . .
 . . . . . return to the beach for an afternoon constitutional . . . . .
 . . . and watch children hunt seashells before dressing for dinner.
Yes, it's been a full day at the beach. 

These delightful old black and white photographs
were found at Shorpy's, the largest source
for vintage photographs on the internet.  Gotta go!


  1. Hello Sarajan!
    Wanted to thank you so much for following "witty and wise" :)
    Lovely blog you have...
    Wishing you a wonderful beach vacation!

    1. Thanks, Irina. We're only lucky enough to get to the beach about twice a year but we make the most of it!

    2. Ah! I see Irina has been here too! I love her blog! Lots of wisdom there to be had.
      These vintage photos are divine. Thank you for posting the 'good old days'. I am a mother of four, and grandmother to one. And am a doll sculptor, soft sculptor creator, crocheter (mostly of doilies) and love anything to do with flea markets, and antique stores. I just became a follower of your blog and hope to return soon! And thank you for coming to follow mine!
      Have a great rest of the weekend!

  2. I am back as I had to use the 'reply' comment area above, but now the regular format is here. I have to change the setting on my Dashboard from 'embeded' to 'full page' as my comment 'window' would disappear all together until someone else posted about problems with Blogger.
    Hope this helps!
