Our Sepia Saturday prompt this week sees a charming young lady sat on a beach. My contribution is a picture of my father and my brother, feet in seawater, enjoying the invigorating effects of the North Sea on their extremities. Some may shout about the benefits of steaming spa pools, others may pay tribute to the soothing properties of Epsom Salts or Detoxifying Essential Oils, but if you want to turn a boy into a man, let him dangle his feet in the freezing cold waters of Bridlington Bay. The picture must have been taken in about 1950, and I suspect it was taken in Bridlington which was the holiday resort of choice for our family at the time. Other than the slightly sloping horizon, it is a surprisingly good photograph and I wonder whether it might have been taken by my Uncle Harry (see my post from yesterday) who would often accompany us on holiday along with his wife, my fathers' sister, Annie. And if it was taken by Uncle Harry, it would complete a neat family triangle, because I have to confess that the bathing belle in the prompt photograph is my fathers' other sister, Miriam.
If you are fed up with my family (and I wouldn't blame you) paddle on over to the Sepia Saturday Blog and take a look at loads of other contributions to this weeks' Sepia Saturday, none of which will feature any more of my uncles or aunts.
