Ruby Tuesday - The end of summer

Ruby Tuesday arrives near the end of the American summer, and we know that Autumn awaits. In fact, Cameron is going back to the U-of-Hartford on Sunday, so the calendar may still say 'Summer', but our thoughts say otherwise... 

I believe the year is 1964, as there were six kids - baby Christopher was born at the end of August. The place is in front of the Sea Gull cottages in beautiful Brigantine, NJ. Naturally patriarch Grandpa is part of this, surrounded by smiling grandchildren. It seems that none of the kids dressed up for this take - so the look of he brood was part of a fun vacation at the beach.

There is ruby showing through the wet sand, so the qualification for RT is met...See more ruby gems at Mary's always fun meme!

A gorgeous happy photo! Love the touch of sand drying on the little girl's swimsuit bottom right!

Grandpa's face tells us all is right in his world on this day surrounded by all those smiling grandchildren. The love certainly shines on those faces.
LOVELY photo Ralph!

What a perfect summer capture! Beach fun, big smiles, Grandpa, swimsuits and sand--it just doesn't get any better. Thanks for sharing your family photos and congrats for being the 'ruby' in the pic.
