Going For A Paddle

CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE. REPEAT IF REQUIRED.

On another summery September day Jackie and I nursed colds indoors whilst Aaron and Sean virtually completed removing the grizelinia hedge. I scanned another couple of dozen colour slides from September 1982. These were from a holiday in Brittany enjoyed with our friends Ann and Don. Here is a selection:

Jessica, Ann,Sam, beach 9.82

The group nearest the centre of this underpopulated beach include Jessica, Ann, and Sam.

Man carrying seaweed 9.82

A gentleman emerged from the sea clutching a cluster of seaweed;

Children on beach 9.82 2

a string of gleeful children danced their way to the ocean;

Woman crossing beach 9.82

 a lone woman passing them traversed the beach.

Jessica, Ann, Sam 9.82 4

Hand in hand, Jessica and Ann led Sam into the water

Jessica, Ann, Sam 9.82 1

and swung him to meet the wavelets.

Ann and Sam 9.82 1

Ann continued the gymnastics

Jessica wading 9.82 2

while Jessica went for a paddle.

Sam and Louisa 9.82

Sam, dried off, and ready for bed, told his sister all about it.

Rusty iron roof 9.82 1

Attached to our rented gite was a shed with a corrugated iron roof

Hydrangea 9.82 1

that blended quite well with the ageing hydrangeas.

This evening we dined on pizza and I drank Doom Bar.

  1. Sam with his baby sister was so precious. I like that you mentioned he was telling her about his experience in the water. 🙂
    I love the photo of joyous children all running into the water!
