"Way Back When"sday

Steve and his Grandmom at her house on Berkley Ave.
aprox 1987

I'm back and I'm gonna be better than ever, I have found a new challenge and thanks to the help, motivation and inspiration from family and friends (new and old), by goodness, I think I can do it. I have always liked taking pictures and have boxes upon boxes to prove it, but they need to be shared. Plus with all these Grandkiddles (last count 11), someone has to be a historian. lol

So moving forward there will be more pictures, some old, some new, some black & white and some colorful.

Dunes are Down

If it isn't snow, it's sand, June Gloom has lifted, the wind has stopped, the sun is shining and the sand dunes are being moved. Finally I can see the ocean from my window again!!
