ON AN ENGLISH BEACH

another pic from the archives. i love my grandparent's photos and a lot of them feature family holidays. this one sees my grandad c on the left...he of the very white legs! and then my mum (facing camera) and sisters all sat on the one towel having a picnic. i think grandma must have taken this and i'm sure it's got to be on a beach in norfolk...there's a tradition going way back to take summer trips there in our family.

mum has the sweetest looking swimming costume on. if only i could see the real life version!x

  4. Hi kelly,

    I loved that costume; I thought it so grown up and daring, dark blue edging with different coloured sauage dogs on it, how chic!
    We were eating fresh bread with lunchen meat in, bought from the shops in Hunstanton, where we always had our holidays!

    love M xx
