An in between post while I am putting together my last one on Frying Pan Park.
Knowing how much I enjoy fashions through the ages, Gregg shared this old postcard that popped up in one of his e-mails. These ladies are paddling at the water's edge in Torquay, which is where I worked for several years before I met my dear husband there almost 43 years ago. I can't imagine wearing all those clothes on a hot day at the beach, but wear them they did and enjoyed themselves tremendously by the look of it.
Here is an interesting Jane Austen quote:
"I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives."
Any thoughts on that quote?
