Your Dad played rugby? If so that is surely the secret to all your success.
Long live oblong balls and sports played while wearing a collar.

I love your father's many outfits for each location - like a catalog shoot! I adored looking at these pictures.

Lovely! Though better, like my Dad of the same era, without the mustache:)

I love how they take turns posing in front of things. My parents do that too.

Cute couple!

What an amazing collection of photos. They are so chic and innocent and 70s. Your parents look like they were really happy and in love.

Laura [What I Like] said...

My, they certainly did get around didn't they! I love looking at old photos of my parents...something so glamorously hippie about the whole era.

These are amazing - your parents are so stylish; the places!; yours and Porter's resemblance to your mother - it gave me a little pain in my chest.

We are looking more and more like them both. It's freaky!

I love old photos, also. They traveled all over in such a short span of time! Did they have any reason, or was it just personal pleasure?

Amazing pictures of two very stylish people.

What I find really disturbing here is I am TRULY old enough to be your parent! And here I thought we were....peers. I want to go cry now.
