At Leisure On The Beach

It seems strange posting views on English beaches when I'm on holiday in Michigan but here's two I'll share.

The first was taken in 2008. You may say this is not an old photo, but as it was taken while we celebrated our golden wedding I think that makes it qualify.Doesn't my son look lonely paddling in the sea?

Beach on Tresco in the Scilly Isles
The second photo is of my late father-in-law and one of his daughters, we're not sure which but the photo must be approaching 70 years old.



For more beach scenes visit Alan Burnett's Sepia Saturday.79

I live in Florida. I'm surrounded by beaches. Going to London in September for a vacation.

You must have been married very young! The Scillies are beautiful, what a lovely place to celebrate your Golden Wedding. There’s a new series of Coast on BBC and this week they were in the Scillies - all too briefly. Made me glad that we took the helicopter, and not the Scillonian, when we visited.

Suits on the beach - very appropriate.

I like the old beach photo. It reminds me of my early days on a beach. It must have been hard on the suit.

I've also shared a suits on the beach image - complete with bow tie!

Your first photograph is a beautiful composition, I really like it.

Oh I can imagine the next day of work he had sand in his trouser pockets. Let's hope he told the boss he was at the beach and didn't leave a telltale path of sand leading directly to his desk.

Welcome to our side of the earth. Michigan is a beautiful state with the great lakes giving you cool breezes and sea gulls.

Great pictures Bob. The top picture is really well composed. Suits on the beach? why not.

Michigan, well imagine that. I'm especially impressed that you are posting on vacation. That's dedication.
These are both beautiful photos - very appropriate for Sepia Saturday. They both fill me with a longing for the beach.
