I'm in the mood to swim, preferably in the sea, but our local lakes will have to do for the majority of the summer. This photo of Lake Calhoun is from 1915 taken by CJ Hibbard.

The Jantzen yellow suit is amazing but an awkward swimmer—too much soggy wool for my taste. My new stripe suit is of brushed cotton and fits me to a tee. It was generous and grand birthday present from my sister's beau—— Jay. It was his grandmothers and hand-sewn. I'd really like to fashion this gem.
