What a fantastic shot!! I’m so glad that I don’t have to wear a dress to go swimming.  No wonder ladies didn’t do much swimming.  You would drown in those things.  🙂

It reminds me of my favorite picture of my grandfather.  I like this picture so much because he was such a kind, strong and athletic man.  I like remembering him this way.  The two girls in the picture are my mother and her sister.  This was probably taken ca. 1953 in Michigan.
