I donít have many pictures of my mother- and father-in-law. They never owned a camera, so all we have are the few that were taken by friends. This was probably taken in the late 40ís and because the beach behind them is so empty, I know that it canít have been any of the ones in Brooklyn. They also liked Rockaway Beach Queens, so Iím going to go with that.

The kids would cool off in the water and the adults would simply relax on the sand. For more details and a list of supplies, please visit my blog http://www.scrappymusings.com/2019/02/memories.html
