Robbins Rest - swimsuits on the line

In the summer of 1976, we rented a house from the daugher of Toni's godmother, Jane Perrin, in the little enclave of Robbins Rest, west of Ocean Beach, on Fire Island. We took the house on Memorial Day weekend, and kept it through Labor Day -- though we decided, sometime later, to actually spend the month of August over in Europe.

 

We invited various people out to visit, and usually had Jenny and/or Marian Nash with us on most weekends. On this occasion, our lawyer/friend Steve Froling had come for the weekend, with his two daughters Kristen and Alison. Jenny was five during that summer, as was Alison (I think); and I suspect that red-headed Kristin was four-ish.

 

We often had towels draped on the railing of the deck porch, plus swim suits and various other things hung on the clothes-line beside the house. It made a profusion of colors, which is what I was trying to capture here.

 

Note: this photo was published in the Oct 21, 2008 issue of "Green Behavior" blog, in an article entitled "Line Drying Clothes - A Green Initiative." It was also published in an Apr 22, 2009 blog titled " Swimsuits and School Reform." And more recently, it was published in an Aug 27, 2009 blog titled " What Kind of Swimsuit Should You Use?" And it was published in Sep 23, 2009 blog titled Guest Post: A New Voice."

 

Moving into 2010, the photo was published in a Feb 11, 2010 blog titled "Should I Go Au Natural In My Spa?" And it was published in an Apr 15, 2010 blog titled "Padded tops for tots." It was also published in a Jun 16, 2010 BugiL | Blog BB 21 ++ blog, with the same title as the caption that I used on this Flickr page. And for reasons I don't understand at all, it was published in an undated (mid-Nov 2010) Cool Lawyers Images blog, with the same title and detailed notes as what I had written on this Flickr page.

 

Moving into 2011, the photo was published in a May 4, 2011 blog titled " Bathing Suit Shopping With The Australian Mermaid, as well as a May 31, 2011 blog titled "quelle mode balnéaire choisir cet été?" It was also published in a Jun 16, 2011 blog titled "Standard of Beauty."
