My Dad. . . . . . . . . .

Torquay, Devon, England - 1970
Edward Rolton M. (but always called Steve) - 1900-1976

My father's birthplace - the small fishing town of Brixham, Devon, on the edge of Tor Bay.
When I go home to England I always take the small ferry across the bay, sit quietly
 on the harbourside, and recall the time I did that with my daddy as a child.

Enjoy being with your Father today if you can. . . . . . or remember 
him with love and respect.


  1. Such a sweet way of remembering him.

  2. You are very fortunate to have fond memories of a special Dad.

  3. Beautiful, Mary. He looks like a wonderful gentleman.


  4. A touching tribute to your Dad, Mary.
    It wasn't Father's Day in Germany, so there weren't any special celebrations going on, but I do love my Dad all year :-) In fact, I am working from home today which means I can have lunch at my parents'. I bought luxurious chocolates for them on the weekend, each is getting a small bag of hand-made chocolates of the tastes they like best, to say thank you for the lunch.

  5. I'm glad I caught this, Mary. Lovely memory and place.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
