(Not So) Wordless Wednesday -- Honeymoon Couple

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This is a photograph of my parents, Betty (Carringer) (age 22) and Frederick W. Seaver (age 30), on their honeymoon in July 1942. I believe that it was taken in Dana Point in Orange County, California.

They look happy, don't they? I'm glad! They had no idea what the future held for them. World War II had just started. Fred joined the US Navy. Betty taught school. Fred became an insurance agent. Betty was a stay-at-home mother. Three sons. Bowling tournament vacations. Little League baseball. Chargers football. 41 years of marriage. Four grandchildren. Health issues.

I wonder where the pictures from my own honeymoon are? Probably in the box hiding somewhere in the garage! Yikes - another project that I don't have time to do.
