Randy and His Girls at the Beach -- Post 335 of (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 Marion (Seaver) (Braithwaite) Hemphill family collection handed down from my Aunt Marion in 2000 after her passing.

When Aunt Marion came to San Diego to visit in 1982, we took her to the beach - she wanted to dip her toe in the Pacific Ocean.  I think we went to the Silver Strand State Beach in San Diego because it provided easy access to the sand and the water from the parking lot.  It was also our favorite beach to jump the waves, build sand castles, bury kids in the sand, hunt for shells, find sand crabs, etc.  And it had bathrooms and a snack bar nearby.

The photo above shows me in the background joyfully working on a sand castle with my daughters, Lori and Tami.  The girls loved the beach, and have extended their joy to their children also.  

This may be the only swimsuit picture I have of myself!  I was skinnier in those days!
