Elspeth - Some of those suits are just so very elegant! I'd feel rich just wearing one of those! Love those sunhats, too :-).
Lady Gwen; I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip to the pool!Sarah; Sometimes I think the same thing.Margot; I like that the women aren't stick insects. Oh, and I love some of the hats as well.

Please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
