Middle Age and Bikinis


This week, I am on holidays. We are staying with relatives not far from Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays, and like anyone else on holidays I try to not think about work too much. 

So, clothing wise, I've been slumming it a bit!


I am living in shorts and tee shirts, or a denim skirt with a cotton blouse. And swimwear of course.


And yesterday I scared everyone on Hamilton Island by wearing a bikini on my middle aged body! 


Australian women seem to be quite hung up about swimwear. Last year I travelled through Croatia and Italy, during the European summer. Everywhere, regardless of age, shape or size women were wearing bikinis, and in Croatia, even less. Nude bathing was quite common, again regardless of age, shape and size.


And you know what - after the initial feeling of surprise, I stopped noticing.


And, even better, I stopped caring about what I looked like.


So today, I channelled those feelings and splashed out on a new bikini. Though I'm not game enough to post a photo yet....


See you at the beach sometime soon.
