The other day I saw a trivia question that read, "Where did the bikini get its name?" "Oh I know that one", I thought. I was sure it was Brigitte Bardot. I remember my Grandmother talking about her wearing a very skimpy bathing suit - the bikini. But I was wrong. It was designed long before Bardot wore one.
The bikini creator, Louis Reard, officially introduced the swimsuit in 1946. He named it after Bikini Island, a place in the South Pacific where the US conducted atomic bomb testing. He thought the bathing suit would cause a similar "explosive" reaction...and it did! Check out this article in Time.com and see the Top 10 Bikinis in Pop Culture
I'm going on vacation for a week so decided I would put on my bikini, find a great island and work on my tan. On this island, you can even rent a surf board and ride the waves.
Enjoy this summer weather we are finally getting. See you next week.
Good Night for now.
