Ruby Tuesday - Boardwalk rubies

Ruby Tuesday arrives, and my past beckons.

Today brings us back to the year 1965, the place the Boardwalk in Atlantic City NJ. In those days (I don't know now), bicycles could be rented to cruise the famous wooden walk until 9-10 AM.

The person is a younger sibling of mine, then almost four years of age. The red sweater and tricycle the requisite ruby. The smile is genuine, the seaside morning nice, sunny and the hint of saltwater in the oceanic breezes surround the riders. 

For more ruby memories, see Mary's fun meme!

Hi Ralph!

This brought back great memories for me too when I walked the board walk there in the seventies!

Wonderful ruby!

Happy RT!

Hi, Ralph,
What an adorable little sis. Just precious.
I have heard of the boardwalk all my life but have never been to Atlantic City. Seems you posted another photo taken in Atlantic City...a grandfather,perhaps..I am assuming you lived there.
I love that you chose olden photos to share with us. This one could have been for your Shadow Shot, too.:)
Thanks for stopping by..always good to see you visit.
I hope your Patti is doing good.

There are so many things I haven't heard of. The wooden boardwalks of Atlanta are new to me.
They are indeed impressive, great handicraft. Your sister is sweeter than Shirley Temple, so very genuine happy and smiling goldielocked little girl.
I love walking down your memory lane. Thanks.

Does your sibling still ride a trike? :-)


The seeker of ruby and red
Will not let green go to her head;
Instead she will seek
Her senses to pique
With cherry and crimson instead.
