Nearly Wordless Wednesday—Albert & Helen

Grandmama and Granddaddy Burmuda cropped

My paternal grandparents, Albert Sidney Pendleton, Sr. and Helen Larue Brown Thomas. This photo was taken sometime in the 1960s when they were on vacation in Bermuda.  I remember them meeting us at the beach after their trip (only I don’t remember which beach, but it was probably Fernandina Beach, Florida, because that’s where we went the most).  I love that they’re holding hands in this photo.  I think my grandfather had a stroke and died not too long after this.  He died in 1965.  This is when people dressed up to travel!  Looks like they’re wearing name tags, so I wonder if this was a vacation package type trip.  I remember being surprised that they went “all the way” to Bermuda!
