Brian - wonder were they local
or just visiting.
No slide whenever I was swimming
there.
Would have been fun.

Slide would have been fun, especially if they mounted it facing out to the waves. Better that the old jumping in from the wall or high diving board. Don't you just love those racy swimsuits? :shocked:

Pat - especially at high tide.
Slides are fun, they have to be
good and wet of course, before
you go down them.
The costumes are definitely a
fashion statement.

No slide in my day.

We got our jollies diving off
the top deck [ when Paul
wasn't around].
