August 24, 1969 The Wonderful Vacation, The Clean Sand, The Blue Skies and The New Hat

Dear Mother & Daddy,

"We are in Williamsburg & all of us will go to Bob's for supper. Patty got along fine with her school meetings but hated to miss two days of fun at the beach.

It has been a wonderful vacation for all of us & we hated to leave Cape Hatteras. It is a beautiful, peaceful place with that enormous expanse of clean sand & blue skies.

We hope you have a wonderful birthday, Daddy.  The check is for a new hat. I planned to buy it myself but Mother & I couldn't find the size in your old one & I was afraid to guess. Maybe you'd rather pick out your own anyway.

This will probably be the last time I write while we're traveling. I've written several cards along the way but don't know how many or how good the mail service is so they may be later than this.

We'll spend tomorrow here & then probably start home Tuesday morning. Patty has to teach & Bob will be working & it's time for us to be getting home anyway.

Hope both of you are fine."

                         Lots of love,
