Great story, if you haven't read his books , you are missing out on a lot of local history of this island.
Thank you Mr. Cherry, you are the best.

I recall that it was pretty scandalous to wear a bikini in 1957! Usually only celebrities wore them back then. My mama said, "No!"

If you knew my mama, you would know why....She kept a firm hand on me...
too firm, at times!

Good story--a blast from the past!

Back then, you hardly saw any bikinis?
Nowadays, you can hardly see the bikinis.
