Nearly Wordless Wednesday—Albert & Helen
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!
