"3/4 inch  X 2 inch
Trolley Ticket for a long ago Sunday School trip from Buckroe Beach to Old Point Virginia. This ticket has aged well and has no user value. It was for the Calvary Baptist Sunday School.  I would guess
it is from the 1920 but have no real knowledge of the fact.
Some age fade appears..."
"Tournament at Buckroe Beach near Old Point, Va."  
    I scanned this at 600 dpi.
That is why the file is so large.  WOW, that pulls out a lot of detail,
doesn't it?

WOW!  Thanks, Michael! Every now and then an image comes along which is so clear, so evocative of the moment, that I am almost literally transported back to the days of my childhood, bringing back memories so crisp and clean I can not only smell them but taste them.
This is one of those pictures.
Thank you so much, Dave!  This is a true treasure.

NOW:
McNamara's Pier 1 Fishin' Pier Big Bands Big Crowd Kids' Park
I moved to Buckroe Beach 3-1/2 years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it.  Some of the pictures you have on the web page of the beach and amusement park in the past are outstanding. 
I'm sending some pictures of what
Buckroe Beach looks like now.
I took these last week-end.
Notice in the background McNamara's Pier 1
and the fishing pier. 
New this year is "Bark Park" (for your dogs to play)
and "SS Buckroe" (for your kids to play).

I'm Always Here

(Baywatch Theme Song)


Some people stand in darkness
Afraid to step into the light.
Some people need to help somebody
When the edge of surrender is in sight.
Don't you worry, it's going to be all
right.

'Cause I'm always there,
I won't let you out of my sight.
I'll be there--never you fear
I'll be there--forever and always
I'm always here.

'Cause I'm always there,
I won't let you out of my sight.
I'll be there--never you fear
I'll be there--forever and always
I'm always here.
