Happy Memorial Day!

This weekend traditionally marks the start of summer and is usually accompanied by the ceremonial opening of pools everywhere. Unfortunately, much of the country is experience unseasonably cool weather!

Since most of us aren’t going to be taking a dip today, we can at least enjoy this photo slide show from The Weather Channel of folks frolicking on beaches and  through the centuries. Not only are the fashions fun/bizarre/awkward, but the photos offer a glimpse at many historical seaside resorts and other strange things from our bathing past like “bathing machines” and “skreenettes.”

I hope you’re having a fabulous holiday!
