Pictured in 1934 - my great-granddad Arthur with his four kids (l-r Betty, Grace, Norman and George), enjoying a day at the seaside and proud as punch of the bucket-and-spade sculpture they've made. I love this photo.

That is a gorgeous picture - you can feel the happiness! And wow, 1934 - my mum was being born, that year, though I guess my dad would have been about the age of the kids in your pic!

(Also - total rats, I did indeed miss Hinterland, despite your help... I'm hopeful it'll be on iPlayer though, so I can get going next week. Stupid work schedule - I finished 20 minutes after the start...)

Is Betty your grandmother?

Hinterland is indeed on iPlayer. That's how I do all my viewing, because I haven't got a television. The stunning scenery makes up for any darkness, and it's lovely to be able to see occasional shots of Aber sea front as it was prior to the storms that did so much damage.

Yep, Betty was my grandmother. :) I never met her, though, as she died in childbirth when mum was a little girl. So her sister Grace is my nanna - because my grandfather married his dead wife's sister, making my great-aunt my nanna. Norman is still with us too, although he's had to go into a nursing home just a few weeks ago - Alzheimers, he wasn't safe in his own home any more, kept wandering off and getting lost and being brought back by the police.

The gorgeous views of Aberystwyth in Hinterland were a huge draw for me, too, although very bittersweet watching the show at the same time as that beautiful seafront was being torn apart by the storms. :(

I thought she must be - there's a resemblance there between her and you :)

:( stupid work schedule indeed. If all else fails and you do want to check the show out, let me know and I'll see if I can record it onto disc off my tivo for you. I'm sure that must be possible!
