Vintage Vacation: Circa 1968

Here is a pic of me and my brother (I’m in front) sitting on the fence in front of Perce Rock, which is a rock formation in the gulf of Saint Lawrence just off the tip of the Gaspé peninsula.

I believe this was summer 1968. I gotta say that the magic of those trips have never been duplicated. I could stay in a 10 star hotel in the greatest place on earth and the excitement would never match my childhood summer vacations.

I guess it’s something you loose when you age.

  1. Awwww great pic Gary!!

    I’m too embarrassed to share my mini-me vacation pics LOL.
    Probably because they all include me covered in dirt up to my eyeballs, wearing a bathing suit, riding my bike. Every summer we went camping as well and it was always in a new place. We used to find it AMAZING how where ever we would end up the same group of friends would always be there. It was like a miracle! LOL
    We played from the time we got up to the time we went to bed. “I’m bored” was not part of our vocabulary. When it was time to get “cleaned up” we’d just jump in the lake and start over again after lunch/dinner. Good times 🙂
    You are right, nothing can compare to those memories. Childhood just seems to bring a certain magic to every memory doesn’t it?

    P.S. Road trip coming up from KY to MI. I think it’s pretty safe to say that there won’t be as many photos taken this time around.


  2. Ha! No that’s not me! It was submitted by one of our Roadies, Gary.

    I did go to college with Ross, and I was not born in/on/near 1968.
    I wasn’t even a thought in my mother’s mind.
