My Father was AirForce, two tours in France... I was 4 first time then 7 going back second time..The beaches we went to there ÃÂtretat, Normandy. ...Sainte-Marine, Brittany. ...and my favorite,TrÃÂ©gastel, Brittany...I'm a water baby although my sign is fire~ go figure..lololol
Did a lot of surfing in Cocoa Beach where I once lived..Dad stationed at Patricks AirForce Base..Half the guys there would let me surf eith them..My uncle would drive me to school and we'd always surf right at Coca Beach Pier..just a couple blocks from my home.. I don't think I ever went to school with dry hair the whole year he took me...lolol.. Also took half the day to dry because it was long.. Anyway, if not in the water I was running around the Blue Hill Mountains getting bushels of blueberries.. I love the mountains and fresh blueberry jams, homemade muffins, breads OMG I'm getting hungry... My grandmother made the best blueberry ~strawberry jams you could want!!yeast rolls to die for..
My grandmother a nurse and ballerina for the Boston Theatre at the time.. My uncle sat second seat in the Boston Symphony, trumpet player.... My grandfather worked at Alison Charmers as an Electrical Engineer... Then to NASA where he retired from.
My dad career Air Force, mom home with the kids...
We were never home until sunsetting..and in the winter we'd jump out my brothers widows on the second floor into the snow.. I was the one always caught tho.. of course my mother would have a fit my two older brothers would let me..lolol..She didn't know I'd just do it after them... because they really wouldn't let me.hehehe..
Sidetracked.. great memories.. kids now a days miss being kids and building such memories..
Thanks for a stroll down memory lane full of such love...
Something to remember... A very special friend recently told me our angels (that I collect and believe in ) are always with us... He is right....
I've had too many miracles not to know they know before we do...
