Have you heard about Grandpa’s Photos? A family found a collection of old photographs taken by their Grandfather. Unfortunately Grandpa can not remember where the photos were taken, or the stories behind them and so this site has been created to help the family identify the locations. If you recognize a place, let them know. Or, better yet, take a picture in the same place and send it to them.
Great idea. great photos.
It got me thinking about old family photos of favourite memories and places. A few years ago, my cousin scanned boxes of slides and negatives her parents took. They’re of pre-kid adventures, babies, holidays, growing kids and the beach! After discovering Grandpa’s Photos, I got caught in an hour of going through the pictures Kathleen scanned and I especially enjoyed the ones at the beach.
Hands down, the Gulf Shore in Pugwash Nova Scotia is a favourite place. When we were kids, my cousins rented a cottage every summer and there were many days spent on the beach. Our other cousins lived close by which made it extra special. A few weeks ago, we were back at the beach with David and Henry making new memories… it is still special.
So, there is no need to identify the location in the photos below, and although I am not sure who some of the kids are I can say, most of these cute kids are family.
Enjoy the beach this summer.
