Linda's Mother on Vacation in Mid-1970s -- Post 610 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I  can't help it, I can't do a wordless post!  I found some more family photos hiding in Linda's family photo boxes.  This is one of my favorite photographs:

This is Linda's mother, Edna May (Schaffner) Leland (1913-1979) in the mid-1970s.  I think she is in a beachfront hotel, but I don't know where the hotel or the beach or the white building in the distance are located.  Linda's father, Lee Severt Leland (1911-2002) probably took this photograph. Linda's parents loved to go on cruises, and went at least once a year or so.  She has a flower in her hair, so this may have been a special occasion (their 40th wedding anniversary was in 1977).  It may have been in Hawaii.  Maybe Linda's brother knows!

These photos were scanned from photographs created from developed film prints and are not particularly sharp, but they are what we have!

Several times a year when our children were growing up, Linda sent photographs to her parents and brother in San Francisco.  When her father died in 2002, her brother sorted out the photos and gave Linda the ones that were of our family and the ones interacting with them.  They were given to us in a big box of stuff back in 2006, and we finally looked at them last year!  I've started digitizing them for use in these Wordless Wednesday posts.
