|Rosturk Castle, Mulranny, Mayo, August 1987.|
Spike is dozing in the back. His granddaughter
Margie Marlin (about to be married in 2017) is
standing. Her older sister Laura has the red pail.
The years 1951-55 were special, because we lived in Europe (Dublin and Paris), spending our vacations in 1954-55 traveling on a "pilgrimage" around Europe.
Every year after that Spike and Hilda vS Marlin would find a place to rent in the Laurentian Mountains and then in Europe. They would invite over their children and grandchildren.
