      I already decided I would say my name is Victoria instead of Laura if I were hanging out at the bar with the pink stools. Do you want to be Juliet?

    I really wish someone would make a modern resort that looks like this! Love the pictures!

      There has to be a resort like this somewhere! If not, someone needs to open one up because that would be a gold mine! Everyone in the picture seems to be having the best time!

    Back when vacations really were a disconnect from the regular. Nicely done finding these images!

    Loveeeee these. I’d be happy as a clam to stay at any of these! This reminds me of the vintage postcards I featured on my blog: http://tulleandtrinkets.com/2012/05/22/vintage-postcards/ They were my great grandma’s!
