[:en]Is it winter now where you live? Let me warm you up with a vintage beach shot from my grandfathers archives!

Beach Family – Vintage Travel Photo

  In this picture, you can see my grandpa as a child sitting on the canoe. The couple are his parents. I just love everything about this shot. Everyone looks relaxed, my great-grandfather is even smoking a pipe (as you do on a beach) and I can image that in those times being able to take the entire day to go out to the beach together was quite a luxury and an adventure. They seem to have a lot of stuff with them, including a massive pillow and a wooden box, probably with food and drinks. The wheels must be to move the boat around. Looking at the bag and poles on the right side of the picture, I think they are going to set up a tent as well, to make the day out with the family besides a fun, a comfortable one as well. It’s going to be a good day for them!

o you often go out with the family to the beach? What’s your favourite beach?
