A Stroll Down Memory Lane...


Sutro Style

After my sojourn at The OBX, I spent yesterday afternoon sorting thru photo files, to avoid grading, I suppose. Came upon a folder of a Northern Cali trip of a few years back, to visit Miss Jo y familia, including my Mom.

Baba, as the kids called her, has since passed on. Ella Numera Una, pictured in this snap with her Grandmama, has aged, from a college froshie to a first-year law student. I captured this cute moment somewhat askew, at the Cliff House in San Fran. The place we dined, Sutro's, is named for the Sutro Baths, which were built overlooking the Pacific in the late 19th-Century & served as a popular spot for rest & relaxation back in the day.

I really miss both of these gals. Unfortunately, I can only visit Mom thru snaps such as these; luckily, I'm going to hike on out to the Upper Midwest in early April for some hanging-out time with the eldest.

It's wonderful to stroll down Memory Lane every so often, isn't it?

You are blessed. I have only one photo of my mother and no memories. She died when I was only three.

Come on back to the blog and check out Amoeba's answer to you on his Dude's Daylight Savings post. It will make you laugh.

This made me realize how very little pictures I have with my mother. Wow. I need to get on that while we still have time. Thanks for stopping in today! :)

That's why I love photos - they bring back the sharpest memories for me. :)
Stopping by from SITS.

I don't know, I have a weird feeling of "something lost forever" while watching old pictures.
Thus I (almost)never watch them.
Thanks for your visit and comment.

Memory Lane is not a bad place to wander! There is always some beauty to be found and a few forgotten corners too! Interesting shot!

You must be so happy that you made that trip together! Glad you're making another one soon to see your child. Be sure to take lots of pix.

That's a great picture of 2 pretty ladies. Sometimes I find myself going through old photos and getting lost in my head for hours. It's good to remember. :)

Such a great post! And memory.

I look at pics of my Nana sometime and they take me back to being little and playing dress up with her gloves and hats. Sigh.

What a lovely picture! I was strolling through pictures of the babies the other day...

Memory lane is a great place to visit. It is almost as awesome as visiting the upper midwest to hang with your daughter!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

What a great vacation and memories! Enjoy your special St. Pat's lunch.

I love photos, they evoke so many happy memories when I sift through them...

I am a memoryholic. I've been keeping scrapbooks since I was in elementary school. I'm a few years behind right now, but I know I'll get around to it eventually. Gathering scraps from all my good memories and filtering out the rest, it's kindof like therapy I would imagine (only cheaper!).

I love that snap of Baba. Going to dinner at Sutro's Cliff House was such a Baba and Grandpa Bob thing to do too...
