A Trip To Bluffers Park Beach With Mom and Dad

Me And My Parents At Bluffers Park

My husband took this photo at Bluffers Park a few weeks after my Dad got out of the hospital because of heart failure.

When I was a kid, my family and I used to go to the beach a lot.

We'd stay for entire days swimming and playing (or trying to play) soccer.

When I was a teenager my mom or dad and I would drive to the beach in the evenings just to talk and be within the waters calmness.

We did this a lot the summer before I left home to go to university.

And, until a few years ago haven't done it all since.

This photo was taken at Bluffers Park on a wee outing my parents, my husband and I took in 2011.

It was a really nice couple of hours and gives me bittersweet memories of my days before independence.

Hi Susanna

Don't the memories come flooding back? That's the serendipity behind photos. Every one stirs a memory.

I love the meaning of that word, Serendipity...

1. The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
2. The fact or occurrence of such discoveries.
3. An instance of making such a discovery.

I can only imagine where your mind took you when you found the snapshot. I do hope that the trip down memory lane wasn't too, in your word, bittersweet.

Best of luck in the Contest and thank you for your entry.
