Good ole Summertime

Ah, great photo. Makes me long to be beside the seaside! Think I will make this my desktop picture for the time being.

Made my day

At Shorpy. The young lady furthest out in the water facing the camera. Prettiest smile I've seen from pics of the early 20th century.

Beautiful detail

What great detail in this photo. You can even see the bubbly holes the sand makes after the shore recedes.

Into the riggings!

We don't see much of those ships on the horizon nowadays, do we?
