Swimming and swimmers. That’s what I’m taking from this prompt. While it’s warmer than usual up here in Illinois, it’ll be quite awhile till the pools and beaches open. Still lest we forget in the southern hemisphere it’s summer and ’round the equator and below people do need to cool off with a swim.

Down under the equator, it’s summer and the living is easy. So Sepia Saturday headed to the beach for this week’s prompt.
I’m ready for warmer weather already. Love those old photos – good choices.
That first photograph really is magnificent. Such expressions.
Quite a “wild child” hairstyle in that first photograph.
I know. I suppose she’d been swimming and maybe had on a cap. Not sure.
Quite a “funny” picture, that last one. Is that how people in Florida get their suntan?
Those Olympic swimmers were sturdy gals. You wouldn’t want to mess with them.
True. And I wouldn’t mess with the ones around today either.
Yes I adore those men in suits! Hooray, not just bathing ladies, but real live men! The un-known swimmer in the first photo, with that hairstyle she makes me think of a swimmer today, although the suit takes you way, way back! Great entry! Especially the last funny and happy fest!
They take that sting of perfectionism out of donning a swimsuit. Ah, the innocence of days gone by.
Love, love, love the ladies in their caps and hats, heads up, doing their exercises I assume.
I also think they’re in an exercise class. Too bad we’ve abandoned those caps. They aren’t comfortable, but they look whimisical.
