    brightly colored swim suits

    from experience as a red cross water safety instructor and lifeguard training instructor, it is important to dress ourselves and our loved ones in brightly colored swim attire so that we are easily spotted on the beach and or in the water.

    that being said, i always wear a dark bathing suit (black or blue)
    there was a reason that GOD created elephants gray,

    Dress you kids Brightly at the beach.

    I actually saw a documentary on the discovery channel 2 days ago, this was concerning shark and shark attacks. They did a couple of tests with colored wet suits to find out which color attracted the shark the most. The color that actually attracted the sharks (great white) was yellow. Black was the color the shark was least interested in and as a matter of fact wouldn't even come close to the person. But when he was wearing yellow the sharks came close and started attacking. These new research they've done were very interesting and made me think.... maybe that's why most wet suits are black?

    And this is why I love being in Europe where no one judges your body size or shape but embraces everyone as a person (not a body). I hate what society has done to our way of thinking in that everyone has to look perfect in whatever they choose to wear. If you feel comfortable in it - wear it! Don't let society or other people's views dictate what you can and cannot wear. Sorry, just my opinion coming out and I will step off of the soapbox now.....

    I should buy brightly colored swim-trunks for my husband Bill. I spend so much time at the edge of the water, scanning the waves for him, and then just when I've adjusted to being a widow, he comes stumbling out of the water, snorkel in hand and a BIG smile on his face...

    P.S. You will actually be able to witness this behavior... we will be at the Bucuti in 7 days...I will be the woman at the edge of the surf wearing the two-piece bathing suit that I have no business wearing!

    I'll be at Amsterdam Manor....I'll have to walk down the beach and help you search for Bill! And we can compare two-piece swimsuits (I'll be the one sucking my stomach in!)

    How is orange for you?



    Can always spot dh a mile away with his hat.
    When you don't have much on top you need some protection.

    In the spirit of the thread, we all wear the hats to protect our head, ears, and faces from Aruba's fierce sun. ...and Mom's bonus? They are machine washable.
