Summer Stock Sunday - 39

Robin's Summer Stock Sunday meme invites all to post summery photos, and to visit other bloggers who share their feelings and memories about this magical season.

Heading into our Way Back Machine, these shots were taken in the 1970s during an epic road trip out west.

My husband Brad and his family were born and bred in Toronto, except for his dad who hailed from Manitoba, one province west of Ontario.

One summer his Aunt Pat - the Aunt Pat who is always listed as the photographer whenever I post Brad kid pix - took my husband and his brother for a memorable vacation, about which he often reminisces.

Aunt Pat took the two youngest, Jeff and Brad, and showed them the Rockies, Lake Louise, the Columbia Icefields, as well as touching base with family in Winnipeg.

Summer - a perfect time to dust off the suitcases and see the sights that stay with you for a lifetime.

Summr is indeed the perfect time to see sights.
Wasn't it a wonderful idea for his aunt to take the 2 boys on a roadtrip?

How kind of Brad's aunt to take them on such a wonderful vacation. My aunt took me to Folkstone, Kent (UK) to stay with her SIL when I was about 5 years old and the memory has stayed with me, it was wonderful! :)

What a wonderful kind of aunt to have, yay for Aunt Pat!

My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

This will not succeed in reality, that is what I think.
