Here's a quick look back at Julie at the seaside in the 50's and the 60's.
A few years ago, I had an opportunity to go back to Bridlington to visit a friend. Like most places it had changed a lot, but the boats are still there making their trips to Flamborough Head and back and the sands are exactly the same as I remembered, including the donkeys! I spent a lovely morning walking along the same old beach and couldn't resist picking up a couple of the white rocks, rounded by the waves that had washed up on the sands. You can see Flamborough Head in the distance, so I'd like to believe they came from there.
My original idea was to paint our house number on one of the rocks and place it by the front door. Being an ever practical Yorkshire lass however, I started to wonder what I'd do if we moved...... Then it hit me - not the rock, but a really good idea... I've been using Craft Attitude to feature a lot of my photos on all kinds of surfaces, so why not print one of the photos onto Craft Attitude film and glue it on the rock! It now sits on a patio table outside my home in land locked Texas, a constant reminder of my childhood holidays at the seaside. I even have a few shells so we can listen to the waves rushing to the shore....
