hello and welcome to Bygone Beach Days new website ... I would just like to say how great I think the google apps program/system thing is ... I would recommend it to anyone!
These beautiful watercolours were painted in the 1920's by my Great Grandfather Joseph W. Fletcher R.B.A. Each scene has captured the essence and beauty of the South Coast of England, giving an authentic flavour of life in the early 20th Century and they manage to convey the innocent joy experienced by children at the beach that remains constant throughout the ages.
The children in 'Paddling' include my Grandmother and her little sister.

I am currently setting a shop so you can buy my Great Grandfathers beautiful paintings as greeting cards, prints and magnets, so watch this space.
I hope you enjoy following my blog like the memories that these beautiful pictures bring to mind.

Anyway I just wanted to say 'hi' and hope you will pop back soon
