Oh we do like to be beside the seaside

Inspired by the fabulous Vintage Seaside photos at SeasideSundae, here are a few of my vintage family photos by the seaside …

Mum and her cousin, Clacton on Sea

Love Mum's cute outfit

Mum, spade in hand (but where's the bucket?)

A family shot - love the beach-friendly outfits - very English :)

My Mum, and her two brothers (with donkey)

I LOVE this photo of my Mum (far right, such a fab grin), and my Aunt (in front with super cute ringlets) - some 60+ years later they haven't changed much :)

My Dad (second from right), his sister (far left) and cousins

Dad and his sister, at Rhyl

Dad and Grandpa on the promenade, early 1950s

Makes you want to get out your bucket and spade (once it warms up of course!) x
