Got the beach.
Now the girl and the ukelele . . .
My younger niece here, whom so many of you recognize in a gazillion photo shoots on my blog, has learned to play her grandmother’s ukelele. A Martin, which in its first life accompanied her grandmother Barbara to Carmel beach in Monterey California, to sing and hang out with the teens til late, in the Beatnik era of the early fifties. Barbara was also a stunningly beautiful girl, and a musician, and the resemblance is very surprising between the two! Just saying. Now the ukelele belongs to Yours Truly, and she’s got it in her blood I think, and I just love it!
