We spotted this elderly couple walking hand-in-hand towards the water’s edge and grabbed my camera. I felt like an intruder, actually, by taking photographs of them, but it was so very sweet to watch them as they went a little deeper, holding hands and not letting each other go ..
They came down to the beach, every morning, for a couple of days … he, holding her hand, while she dipped in the gentle waves. On their last day, he asked a young mommy to stand with his wife while he went in on his own. He braved the deeper waters, after I took this photo, ducking under the waves. I didn’t take any more photographs but sat and watched them both
It was very, very sweet 🙂
