Uncle Ed and Aunt Janet Visit San Diego -- Post 321 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I am posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't "Wordless" - I am incapable of having a wordless post!

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family photograph collection from my 40 years of photo albums, boxes and piles of family photographs:

This photograph was taken in about 1998 at Cabrillo National Monument on the southern tip of Point Loma in San Diego.  The view is north toward the San Diego airport and San Diego Bay.  I don't know who took the picture - perhaps a bystander with my film camera.

The persons in the photo are (from the left):  Linda Seaver, Randy Seaver, Betty (Carringer) Seaver (my mother), Edward Seaver (my uncle, my father's brother), and Janet (Roukes) Seaver, Ed's wife.

From the mid-1980s until their passing in 2004 and 2002, respectively, Ed and Janet Seaver lived in the Phoenix area in a beautiful retirement community. Occasionally, they would visit us in San Diego and we wold often go sightseeing, especially on clear days.  My mother loved being with Ed and Jan, and I really had a great time hearing the "war stories" and the "childhood/young adult" stories about my father.  Ed was the only one who really knew them, since he was usually a participant in them.  Their sisters knew some of them, but had a different opinion about them.
