Friday Photo: Moe and the Motorcycle

On the first two Fridays of each month, I showcase a family photo and answer the “who, what, when, where and why” of that picture. The first week’s Friday photo is taken from my side of the family and the second week’s Friday photo is chosen from my husband’s side of the family. (I got the idea for this column from Amy Coffin’s ebook The Big Genealogy Blog Book advertised on her The We Tree Genealogy Blog.)

Maurice Belair on a motorcycle in May 1980
Maurice Belair (1980)

Who:
My father Maurice Belair.

What:
Dad poses on a motorcycle at an outdoor event.

When:
May 1980.

Where:
Abbotsford International Airport, Abbotsford, BC, Canada.

Why:
One of Dad’s best friends from Ontario visited our family the year after we moved to BC. During his stay, my father and Paul visited local and nearby sites.

I love this photo, because it shows my Dad happy, relaxed and outdoors. Dad always talked about the day he’d buy a motorcycle for himself and Mom so they could tour Canada and the USA. His wish was never fulfilled, but at least he got to dream.
