Betty on Her Honeymoon -- Post 556 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Several months ago, I discovered an envelope of small photographs saved when my mother died in 2002 - it was hiding in plain sight in the Genea-Cave! 

Included in the photo cache was this oldie-but-goodie - my mother, Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver, in 1942, probably on her honeymoon in Dana Point:

It's a rare photograph that I see my mother smiling.  She was usually pensive.

I have other photographs from her honeymoon in July 1942 with my father in Dana Point, California, so i'm pretty sure this is the setting.

At age 23, her married life was just beginning.  What was she thinking about those days?  Building a nest, working, seeing her new husband go off into World War II?  Having babies was probably not on her mind at this point, but 15 months later, here came number one of three.
