  1. My dad and step-mom took my cousin and I on a trip where we drove from Jekyll Island, GA to Pensacola, FL. Doesn’t sound great, right? Just another drive. However, this trip followed the entire coastline of Florida, from the Georgia line to Miami to Key West, back up through the Everglades and all the way up the gulf coast to Pensacola. We stopped at nearly every island and beach town, taking about 3 weeks to cover it all. It was fantastic. We stay in cottages, we’d camp, we’d fish, we’d surf. And, even better, Florida was still “old Florida” in those days, before developers took it over.

      1. No, I’m from Kentucky, but my dad and step-mom have lived in South Carolina since the late 70’s. At the time of this trip, they lived in Charleston, but have been in Spartanburg for 20+ years now. I’m very familiar with NC, SC, GA, FL, MS, and LA though. I’m most at home in the Deep South. 😊

      2. Hahaha! That’s hilarious! Jekyll was a favorite of ours when I was younger. It’s funny you mentioned Gulfport, because my MIL and my SIL and her kids live in Long Beach, MS. We’re down that way several times a year, and I lived in NOLA when I was in my early 20’s. Small world. 😃

  2. my trip to the World’s Fair, NYC, NY in 1960 something……I went by myself on a train to Cherry Hill, NJ to stay with my godparents and their kids…..for three weeks. We went to the world’s fair several times during that visit.

  3. I went to London with my parents and my Dad, who had grown up in London, took me to see St. Paul’s Cathedral , and the Tower of London. In those days you could just go in to those places. I thought both were amazing . My Dad said he had never been to them while he lived there so it was a first for both of us.

  4. Aged 16 smoking that first cigarette, I would slap myself so hard. Just thinking of all the money I could of wasted on something else is annoying me.

    I have some amazing childhood memories as well, but that one memory annoys me a lot.

    1. When we are young we think we have it all figured out. In some ways we might have, but overall, we were pretty unaware.

  5. Wow I would have to say spending time boating with my mom, dad and brother. Dad used to take us to the Columbia River. He always made summer so much fun. I would also love to relive those nights watching the Carol Burnett show or the Mary Tyler Moore show with my family. My dad used to build my brother and I a tent. Then he would make us “little boats” to snack on. He would roll out pillsbury biscuits and then cut them so they were shaped like boats. He’d deep fry them (not very healthy) then he would smother them with chocolate frosting. I sure wish I was young again and my dad was here making even Saturday nights so much fun
