JFK & Jackie O Hangin’ On Cape Cod

Turns out JFK and Jackie weren’t all that different from us regular folk here in New England. When they weren’t busy running the country, they enjoyed casual relaxation on Cape Cod with friends, chowder and plenty of beach time.  In honor of President’s Day, we thought we’d share these amazing photos taken by Washington Post heiress Katharine Graham at Listerine heiress Rachel ‘Bunny’ Mellon’s Cape Cod beach shack in August 1961. The photos were recently released publicly, and will be auctioned off on February 19th by RR Auction House in Boston.

Even in their bathing suits, we can’t get enough of this couple’s effortless style and grace, and their true New England spirits!
