just aspiring to do and be better...
Wow... It's not often the ocean freezes. Love the photos.
ah god, we are missing something these days with how we dress, aren't we. Look at the tip of his hat! Lovely.Sorry, I hardly noticed the ice.
those pictures are awesome
I remember that winter - living in Hertfordshire, no central heating, huddled round the aga, ice inside the upstairs windows and deep snow - but I didn't realise the sea froze!!!
That must have been quite a cold spell. Nice to have those photos with your dad to commemorate the event.
I am intrigued by the idea, but already growing weary of the snow (not the snow itself, just having to go on with life while it plugs up transportation). This is a great PSF, I LOVE those photos.Your link over at Cecily's isn't working, you may want to check it (could be me and my love affair w/ bt)
Wondered where these pic were, Saz.You were six,pop was twenty eight. Corrrr!
Great images.So, i didn't imagine it then. My memory WAS correct. There were colder winters then. xxxx
Lovely pics Saz. Have youu seen Orlando where the Thames freezes? After Carlisle my Mum lived in Gillingham/Rochester in Kent until 1956 when she came to Canada.
Went to herne bay once and have never seen so many bored teenagers. Kent in general though was nice.
Those were the days!
I keep hearing about 1964; your photos really conjur up the big freeze!
Your dad is just so chic - No wonder your mum managed to look so elegant and 'Ollywood all the time - Now I can see where you get your elegant looks, Saz!What beautiful memories!We were at the beach briefly on Sunday, and the outgoing surf had frozen on the sands - I've personally never known a winter like it - I was just 1 in 1964, what a cute little toddler you were! xox
I ought to remember this. I was 11, after all. I do remember going to school in deep snow for what seemed like days on end, so I guess that it must have been then. The ocean froze? Amazing. Great photos!
I remember it well, it was the winter we moved from the centre of Manchester to Heywood (out in the country) to a new housing estate where there were no paths just frozen mounds of soil! :0
thanks for stepping back in time with you. Your link on the PSF is incomplete..... missing .com don't know if it can be fixed, but wanted to you know.
Wow -- neat nostalgia!
oh - these are fantastic!!!!
I used to cherish time spent with my father. Lovely photos.
Thanks for stopping by!Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms. I will walk a while in your shoes...Saz x
