It's nothing short of a miracle. Only days after giving birth to a healthy 10 lb. baby girl, my cousin Cathy was back in front of the camera, strutting her stuff on the beautiful beaches of Provincetown, Massachusetts.
In a series of echt Forties swimsuit ensembles, our new mother turned heads as she frolicked along the shoreline, striking poses not seen since Moon Over Miami. And when this little mermaid hit the water, she really made waves!
Readers, I'd like to formally thank you for your patience: Cathy has been out of sight since April and I know it hasn't been easy for any of us. Now that baby Simplicity has arrived, I'm sure we'll be seeing more of her, especially when the nanny shows up.
Without further delay, I present our latest photo shoot, Cathy at the Beach.
As always, to see these photos full-size, please click any image and,
in Picasa, choose the album name, and then, in the upper left hand
Which is your favorite of Cathy's three swimsuits? 1) the black and white one-piece, 2) the blue plaid two-piece, or 3) the (reverse-side) insect print?
