The sea:  it's fun to frolic in the waves, go surfing, or take a cruise perhaps.  But the sea can be a dangerous place - even in this day & age & not so far from shore, either.  Case in point - the sinking of the Costa Concordia with loss of life numbering 32 - cruise ship passengers who probably never gave a thought to losing their lives in such a way.
This week's Sepia Saturday prompt is the sea. In fact, the prompt picture of Bondi Beach inspires thoughts of holidays by the beach, but I have recently been researching several members of my family who died at sea and I was ...

Your mother's dress in the first photo is quite elegant.  It looks like a chocolate brown velvety material?  Your father looks rather sweet in the 2nd photo, but the two who really caught my eye in that photo are the 4th girl in from the left in the 1st row - such a proper young lady pose with hands clasped tightly in her lap & feet crossed daintily.  Then there's the little gal front & center in that row - quite relaxed & oh my, "I see London, I see France!"  I wonder how she felt about that pose a few years later?  :)

A rather impressive looking place with a wonderful view.  Don't think I'd mind staying there!  And I love walking out on piers.
Today, 27 June, is the birthday of paternal grandmother, Kathleen. She would have been 107. In 2004 we visited her in Adelaide before she moved to Batemans Bay, New South Wales, to be closer to her son, my father. During our ...

Tunnels are short, tunnels are long, but they're all still tunnels to be sure!  I like the two fellows apparently having a nice chat in the second photo.

What lovely memories you have of your grandmother and how fortunate you are to have them.  (And how wonderful you know how fortunate you are!)  But really, you should wear an apron when you cook.  I enjoy having my husband cook once in a while, but I don't like trying to get the food stains out of his clothes afterward.  Sometimes I think the 'free' dinner might not have been worth it.  :)

In that first postcard picture it appears something odd is going on, on the left side of the street & folks on the other side are staring at & discussing it.  There is something strange about the people on the left side???

The Goodradigbee River & countryside look lovely, though I suspect your grandfather took you fishing in a calmer part of the river.  Fishing in rapids would be a bit difficult.  My Dad took us fishing on the Truckee River while we vacationed at Lake Tahoe in Calif. and I caught a trout or two.  More often than not, however, I had a real 'talent' for getting my line caught up in the rocks & weeds populating the mild rapids where we fished.
The theme for this week's Sepia Saturday blogging prompt is fish. Saturday is the birthday of my maternal grandfather Hans Boltz, who was born 4 July 1910. At the moment I can't find a photograph of Hans fishing. This is a pi...

The YMCA building was quite a place.  Nice that at least a part of it continues on.

I chuckled at your apology to typewriters regarding your post being done on a computer, but in today's popular vernacular - it is what it is!  :)  And thanks for the interesting links.

The woman receiving the kiss seems a bit startled and appears to be trying to fend the kisser off a bit, so I would suppose the winner is the man and he's trying to collect on their 'bet'.  The other woman must be the chaperone but she certainly doesn't seem to be chaperoning very well else she should have nixed the kissing idea in the first place!

I, too, hope the two gals remained friends.  But how come we didn't get to see the front of the postcard with a picture of the hotel?  It would still be reversed if you showed the reverse side first, & the picture side after as we generally tend to show post cards the other way round.
