Diablo Sun Devils Naturist Club
I must say
that I never expected to be making a donation to a
naturist club. Also, I consider it very unlikely that I
will ever be attending any of your club events, since I
have never in the past been a naturist, and I doubt I
will be a naturist in the future. So, that begs the
question as to why a tight-fisted son of New Hampshire
would be so generous (or foolish) as to make a fair
sized donation to a naturist club, while remaining stone
a few week's ago during the Christmas Holiday's I was
visiting my daughter, who is attending college in
Florida. Due to a serious car wreck on the interstate
highway, the traffic was backed up for miles, so with a
great many other cars I pulled off of the highway and
finally found a seat in a restaurant for a bite to
eat. A travel weary family came in with a mother and
father who appeared to be in their late twenties, and
with two small children and a baby. The baby started to
cry and obviously needed to nurse, and the mother began
to discreetly nurse the baby in the booth opposite
mine. There were many different people in this packed
restaurant - young and old - men and woman. Aside from
a few curious stares at first - no one really seemed to
mind - except for four quite fashionable and pretty
young women who also appeared to be in their late
twenties. Frankly, that pack of young bitches became
verbally abusive to the point, where the young mother
who had to nurse was in tears. Fortunately, while I was
in shock at this gross violation of manners, the two
older couples (they had to be in their late seventies)
in the booth next to mine figured it was past time for
this to end. They all stood as one and confronted these
young women, and made it very plain that their meal was
over, and they would be happy to escort them out, with a
physical assist if required. Suddenly, these young
women bullies figured it was time to head off to the
mall, and they left very quickly.
incident upset me so much, that after my vacation ended,
I began a significant in depth research project to try
and find out what might be done to help keep young women
from developing such a poisoned attitude toward life,
and themselves. From the research I have done over the
past few weeks, I have found (to my great surprise) that
your naturist club is one of the few groups that is
consistently trying to make a positive change in the
attitude of young women, toward their bodies, and
hopefully toward themselves and each other. Therefore,
I am honored to make a donation of support in the amount
of $300.00 to your club.

Thank You Mark... for sharing this with
us and for your generous donation.
Women's breasts bother no one except
those who have unfortunately been
trained to be embarrassed by them. Women
who are bare-breasted in public places
aren't nude... these women are simply
exercising their right to the same Top
as men have had for decades... and we
whole heartedly defend that right..!
We would love to see many more women
join us with our
Top Freedom Photo Protest... and we
really appreciate your support..!
to me is freedom. People
don't judge you by the way you look.
It's nice. They
don't care if you are too skinny, extremely fat, short, tall, hairy
body, handicapped or whatever you might think.
People talk to you just like if you had clothes on. It's
a great group of people to be around. Just like your friends from
school, work, church, or where ever you meet people. You are more of

enjoyed browsing your site and I even ordered some nipple jewelry. I am a
naturist by heart but unable to practice in reality. I live in Washington
State and I am married to someone with opposite feelings for this lifestyle.
It is enough that I go with out a bra for him :( I ache to feel
the sun on myself sometime, so unfortunately I can only participate from
afar but thanks so much for your welcome.

Vera is an amazing awesome
Lady. She is a blessing from heaven and a genuine treasure. She is truly
woman. And I have nothing but the highest amount of respect for her. Bless her beyond word's.
Fay Patterson -
|I just discovered your website and am very impressed with your goal of empowering people, especially women. Everyone has the right to love and accept themselves and their bodies. Social nudism is a wonderful vehicle for liberating people from being self-conscious about their bodies, as well as being a great way of life. As you have observed in various places on your website, it helps to break down social/economic divides, stereotypes, and other divisions that we have come to impose on ourselves.
Blessings... Howard - USA
Hi Vera and Happy Birthday,
I was sorry to read and see that you won't be
appearing on the website as much and I do hope you'll have a change of
heart. One thing that I've always enjoyed about your website is that
in all of your photos of club events everyone is laughing and smiling.
I must remind you that the sexiest thing about you is your gorgeous
smile!!! It just shows how much fun you're having and there is nothing
beautiful than a nude woman who is having the time of her life being
nude. I won't deny that I enjoy seeing the young pretty girls that are
on the site, but I think the real beauty lies in the vivacious ladies that
are more in your age bracket. Women should have curves and jiggles and
what some may view as unpleasantries, in my mind, are incredibly sexy!
They are sexy because they are real and what I find exciting is when
"real" women in our society want to get naked and show us how sexy
they can be. I'm a nudist and I don't get aroused at the sight of a
naked woman, but Vera I can't lie to you, I have viewed your pictures and
become aroused just by the happy look on your face! You have a
beautiful body with lovely hips and breasts....(we could be here forever if
you get me started)..!
Bottom line, to me, you represent all that is
"woman" and I'm not alone in thinking it's sexy. I sure hope
you have a change in heart and there are so many people in the world that
love you for your contributions that you've made and what you've done for
On another note, I want to thank you so much
for the poem you sent us when our dog died. We both cried when we read
it. I have printed a copy and posted it in my dog's photo album so we
Thanks again and have a great birthday!
Ron and Tracy - USA
My Dearest Vera,
I thought long and hard about writing this note to you, I am not in the habit of writing to married ladies but I have made an exception in your case. I once again was looking at the beautiful woman on this beautiful site when I came to you again. You are
so incredibly beautiful, I am truly incapable of expressing how beautiful. However, I am in good company, Rembrandt and Picasso with all their talent did not nor could they paint anything to rival your aristocratic, classical beauty. Michelangelo, the greatest sculptor ever, could not create anything to equal your stunning beauty.
I worried for a moment that I might embarrass you with my inadequate words but I realized that I could not because you are very aware of your beauty. You exude it in your pictures, your self confidence and self assurance leap out of your photos. Your beauty is very sexy but what really makes you the sexiest woman I have ever seen is your being. I certainly did not think it possible but you are much more beautiful on the inside than on the outside. It might be possible for the greatest sculptor in the world to capture your outer beauty... but on his best day...
with the best stone available... he could not capture your inner beauty..!
Well I have certainly gone on more than I should have... so I must stop. With all due respect to you and your husband, I remain in the distance, your greatest admirer and wish you nothing but happiness. Your friend forever,
Steve - USA
have I told you that we LOVE
your naturist club's website... the celebration of nude bodies is
Laura and Nick - California - USA
I love being a nudist and one of the questions that I hear from women a lot is, why?
Why would you want to be a nudist? Why would you want to be nude in your home or around others?
Why would you want to be nude as a family?
I think those are great questions, and questions that a lot of women and moms have who haven't been exposed to
In our society there are so many misconceptions about nudity, it is easy to understand the confusion that many women feel when you talk about nudism.
I never try to force anyone to try nudism, but I do ask that you have an open mind and be willing to think about nudism in ways that maybe you haven't before.
I think nudism can be especially helpful and beneficial to women in our society today.
With the media and our culture telling us we have to look a certain way to be accepted and loved by others, many women are consumed by how they look and what their body is like.
Women today need something that tells them they are beautiful just the way they are.
That they don't need to look a certain way or perform a certain way. Women need to know they are free to be who they are.
What many women don't realize is that there is freedom in nudity. Freedom from a culture that tells you what a perfect body is supposed to look like.
Freedom from the need to feel like you must look a certain way.
Nudism promotes body acceptance and self confidence. It helps to bring down the barriers that we put up and reduces the superficiality that we often find in others.
Nudism promotes the idea that you are beautiful just the way you are and that you have nothing to be ashamed of.
It is so freeing to be able to strip down and announce to the world, "I love who I am".
It's great to be around others who feel the same way. Nudism is not about sex! It's about freedom and acceptance and self esteem and self confidence.
Can you have those things with out being a nudist? Of course you can.
I'm not trying to say that nudism is the only way to live. I'm just trying to say that nudism is a legitimate and beneficial lifestyle for those who choose
I think everyone should at least give it a try and experience the benefits for themselves.
Try it out for a weekend and see what it is like. I know it will feel somewhat awkward at first, just because it is new and different, but give it a try and see what you think.

I want to share the thoughts your naturist
club's web site brings to mind... not just the superb photos... but the way
you promote this wonderful way of life. I am a member of the
"Coast and Valley Naturists Club" on the Central Coast at Gosford,
New South Wales... Australia. We are affiliated with the Australian
Nudist Federation. Though a small club... we have our swim nights and
organize many outings. We have a mixed membership of about 100 from kids
just able to swim... to folk in their eighties. It is an excellent...
happy... trouble free... tolerant small club.
I write because your ability to present such a wholesome invitation to those
who may find an interest in this way of life is outstanding. There is
also great beauty in the photographs shown, while Vera shows clearly a
personality that would surely turn the head of anyone fortunate enough to
view any of her photos. I for one think she is just so
beautiful. Please don't get the wrong idea Vera, I hit 74 not long
ago... but then I shed years looking at your Sun Devils and You..!
I wonder too about the camera used. Lighting,
color and the settings are not the product of luck, so I will thank your
photographer for his contribution to the success of the site..!
This is not an official email, just a very
genuine Thank You from what I guess, is a pretty good fan.

recently joined your club and I just have to say that you and your husband
did a great job on the site. I am not a nudist myself but I am curious in
finding more information about nudism. Through your website, I have
been able to contact other members. There is a lady, her name is
Maneerat and she's from Asia. I am from Asia too and it's great to
have known her through your website. I have been talking to her and
have her share her experiences with me. I just want to say well done
and you look great! In fact, all these women in the website look
great! They look so confident and THAT is SEXY! I am working on
my courage to have my picture taken, and when I can come to that, I'll
definitely send you a copy. :)
I come from a very close minded culture where it's wrong for women to go
nude. They can say very hurtful things and be judgmental about other
women's body. I used to hate my body and never wore anything that
revealed my shoulders even. But now, after being in the United States
for three years and visiting your website frequently, I have been more
accepting to my body and even looked at myself straight in the mirror,
nude. I've never been able to do that before. I am still
hesitant about going out, but I am trying..:) I'll let you know
when I can, and I would love to meet you. Once again, thank you for
making me feel like a woman and letting me realize that I can be sexy in any
shape or size.
Lilly Lee - New York
have just finished looking over your Diablo Sun Devils Naturist Club's Web
site and I must say I am impressed. You seem to have a very classy nudist
club and I commend you on your goals of helping women overcome their fears
by introducing them to the joy of naturism. Your photographs
portraying nudity are tastefully done and it is refreshing to see the beauty
of nude women in a positive manner and without the inclusion of any
pornography. Feel free to reprint the article I wrote for the San Jose
on you club's site.
Larry Magid... Palo Alto -
I have always loved the feeling of being nude and I'm always nude whenever I do my house cleaning. But I've never had the courage to take off my clothing in a place where someone else might see me, even though I must admit I have sometimes wanted to. Then I read
everything on your nudist clubs web site, and I want you to know it has seriously changed my life.
Last week I was invited to a New Years hot tub party at my good friends home. I have been invited to parties there before but I have never accepted because I knew the people went in the hot tub naked and just didn't think I could do that. Well, I was wrong. After reading
about your first experience I was determined to try it, so this time I said yes to the party invitation.
I was very nervous getting ready for the party that evening but I calmed down by trimming my pubic area very nicely and convincing myself to just put on my heels and long winter coat and nothing else. I really thought I was ready and it was kind of exciting to me, but when I walked into my friends house I was shocked to find over 40 people there. What was supposed to be a small party with 6 or 8 friends was a big party and I didn't even know most of the people. I was so nervous I decided to just keep my coat on, have a cocktail and come up with a good excuse to leave. My girlfriend introduced me to a few people in the house then took me outside to meet some others in the patio and a few that were nude in and around the hot tub. To my surprise it didn't bother me when I was introduced to the men and women that were nude, in fact it was refreshing and I rather enjoyed it. When we returned to the bar area in the house my girlfriend and her husband handed me a glass of champagne and offered to take my coat for me. I told them I wasn't wearing anything under it and they said, "no problem, that's wonderful." I was scared to death Vera, but I really wanted to do what you said and "allow myself the freedom to be nude". I knew this was my moment of truth so I put down my champagne, unbuttoned and took off my coat, and with a big smile on my face I handed
it to her husband.
I could hardly believe it, there I was nude, wearing only my heels and drinking a glass of champagne in a house full of people and no one even seemed to pay any attention. Even though I didn't show it I was petrified for the first few minutes. But after they introduced me to a few people who were passing by us and I said hello to some other people I already knew it just didn't feel like a big deal. Within half an hour of taking off my coat it seemed everyone was nude and I felt completely at ease.
Actually it was more than just feeling at ease, I felt great, I felt like a woman, I was having a wonderful time and I want to thank you Vera. You are right and I learned something, being nude made me feel more like a woman than I have felt in years and I am not ashamed to admit that it made me feel very sexy. But it was not a sexual event. It was a marvelous evening of just being nude and natural and human and I have never enjoyed myself more. I can hardly wait to be invited to another hot tub party and am sure I will be nude socially at every possible opportunity in the future.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

just returned from a trip to Europe... I was talking to someone in London
and we discussed naturism in Europe verses naturism here in the States, and it was a
significant attitude difference there. Nudism isn't "weird"
or "deviant" there, and as you've noted on your website, the
amount of social hurts that we have here in the States appears to be in
direct relation to how hung-up or intolerant we are of anything that may
(heaven forbid) be regarded as pleasurable or "free thinking".
Hats off to you, M'Lady, for pointing that out in NO uncertain terms.
Dave Jansson - Cupertino -
think it’s so wonderful that you and so many other Sun Devils are so
liberated to post your pictures on the internet. You are all so proud of
your nudism (as you should be!) and want to share it with the world. You all
embody the true essence of being human. You live life as we all should, free
of clothing and inhibitions. As you point out only in recent times have
restrictions on the body been put in place. The human form is a beautiful
and wonderful thing, and should not be hidden.
William - East Coast - USA
I once was once a member of the American
Association for Nude Recreation (10+ yrs), but I didn't renew last year.
During the last couple of years I have worked way more than I played,
because of that, I seemed to loose my "groove", and couldn't seem
to find it. Needless to say I gained weight due to the lack of NOT having a
balance of nature in my life, including having FUN.
I love nudism, it invigorates my senses, and
makes me feel like a beautiful butterfly, everything in my life is close to
perfection. I look forward to joining and being part of the Sun Devils, and
once again, being a real nudist. Oh yeah... it was also about two months ago
that I looked on the Sun Devil's website, and that was the inspiration that
I needed to get my "spiritual" self back into balance again!
Cheryl - Half Moon Bay -
I am a nudist and you are right. It is
difficult trying to help other women get into nudism. They are
concerned about their bodies etc. The education, the sense of shame.
I believe that nudist women have more joy in their lives. I love and enjoy
being a woman. Your website is very refreshing and always makes me
Annette - Bavaria -
Thanks for attempting to reach the female
population Vera. There is just no way to describe how living nude will change your life for the
better. We all need to add more acceptance to our lives, both public and personal and what
better way than to start with ourselves. The only thing standing between most women and
their lost self-esteem is their clothing. This is NOT Baywatch - it's real. We are all
Mona - Nudist - Arizona
Thank you for presenting some very
healthy thoughts on the subject of nudity. Me and my family spend most of our time nude
together back home in Norway. I am a sex therapist and I can assure you we do not have the
sex maniacs and rapists that you do in America because nudity is looked upon as a very
normal and natural way of living. It is sad that here in the US you need to form a club to
find friends that feel comfortable being nude around each other. I have been nude around
nearly every friend I have, male or female. Many women in the United States have forgotten
how to feel good about their bodies and about themselves. Some have even forgotten how to
feel like a woman. I hope many women, and also men, can have the wonderful experience that
you have had in the joy of nature and nudity. Good luck with your club and may the Lord be
with you and your darling web site.

Nudists - Salt lake City,
I am a college student in Santa Cruz,
California and I could never really
admit I was a nudist but after reading all about you, I know that I am. I'm not an
exhibitionist, I just love the freedom I feel when I am naked. After seeing your web site
yesterday I decided to stay naked even though I knew my room mate was coming home soon. I
was really surprised when she walked in with her boyfriend but I tried not to show it.
They loved it and we all had dinner together in the nude. We enjoyed it so much that next
weekend we are going to a nude beach together. Thank you, you made me realize I am a
nudist and it's okay!

Beautifully designed Web site and one of
the first "Nice" USA sites we have come across. We've always been really cagey
about US naturists who seemed mostly to be swingers - we are NOT.

The guy I date is a naturist and I have
been to two club events and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone was exceptionally nice
and didn't mind if I only went "semi-nude". It was quite a unique experience.
Peggy Chacon - Future Nudist - Las
Cruces - New Mexico
Although a Baby Boomer and the child of a
free-spirited artist, I grew up concerned that I didn't have a model's
perfect body. Naturism wasn't for me, even if I was for naturists.
Sure, I envied the freedom and self confidence of friends who skinny
dipped with strangers during large-scale campouts. And as a native
Floridian sun worshipper, I was impressed by the uninterrupted bronze tans
of others. But with spying, prying neighbors and no nearby nude
beaches, I had to be content with textile.
When the removal of breast cancer left a
three-inch scar, I really started to develop an unhealthy body image.
Three years later, I decided that I had to get over my fear of rejection
and that the best way for me to do it was to go to a nude beach and learn
to walk with my head up. My naturist boyfriend was delighted.
On a blissfully sunny day, we headed to Haulover Beach, spread out a
blanket, peeled off our clothes, oiled each other, soaked up the rays,
were caressed by the warm breeze, played in the surf, and strolled down
the beach hand-in-hand. I guess I was really ready for this
experience because I didn't feel at all inhibited the whole time we were
there. I felt healed. I felt liberated. No longer was I
afraid to be bare in public. When I told some of my friends, who
happened to also be naturists, they were pleased to have a convert among
During the week, I telecommute to work and
I have nothing but a smile and the radio on. On the weekends, I take
my radio to Haulover.

I really enjoy this nudist club as it is
about women being naked and enjoying it. I feel a woman should be
able to enjoy nudism and her sexuality and be free to look sexy without
having to resort to xxx pictures. I'm sure you and most of the other
members of the Sun Devils enjoy the sexy side of nudism and of being
feminine. Some women often shy away from this, usually because they
don't have contact with other women to be able to chat about the sexier
side of life and of womanhood. For instance, very few women talk
about sex toys, yet lots have them. Since coming out of my shell a
few years ago, I started to talk to friends more openly, and was amazed at
just how many of them were relieved to be able to talk to me about sexy
things, as they had kept it a closed secret fearing they would be looked
on as some nympho if they even mentioned sex. I would like to see
more members talking about nudism and on the Devil Forum and I think it
would be good for all of us..!
Jean Jones - The United
We like the ideas expressed by the Diablo Sun
Devils nudist club and feel that they reflect our own beliefs more than any
other club we have ever reviewed. We live in an area and work jobs that
we feel would probably not accept us in our desire to be nude. Your club seems
to let everyone interact without prejudice. It will be exciting to share our
desire to be nude and enjoy social nudism with people all over the world.

I found this site from a link provided by
Lupin. I am one of
the founding members of Wildwood Naturist's Resort, which started out from the ground up
on a long disused diary farm. We are located on a 120 acre tract about 50 miles from
I am pleased to see that a group of women have organized to
promote social nudity and social naturism. I hope that more women will take the
opportunity to "step out of line" and enjoy some freedom. I remember the
words of a former girl friend who said, "It's going to be so hard to put my clothes
back on and go home."
My introducing my then girl friend to nude recreation
encouraged her to look for opportunities closer to her home city. She found a travel
club, and met a really great guy through it. They've been together for nearly
7 years now! I "lost" a girlfriend, but I have greater satisfaction
knowing that I started her on a path that led to enduring love. Best
wishes to all, Tom L.

What a delightfully refreshing site! The
graphics alone make it worth the visit, but the content is right on. I have
linked it to my own nudist site. Thanks for a great site, it
is very well done with a wealth of

I am recently new to nudism, and I have been
impressed by your stated goals and by the fact that you seem like you not only
want to help people discover nudism, but also have fun with it. Some
groups seem to try to make it too serious, and you seem like you have a sense
of humor and a desire to have fun.
Roy Martin - Kentucky
Congratulations for creating a masterpiece with
your website. Nowhere else is the joy of nude life so rationally and
tastefully elaborated. Yours is the perspective I will use to introduce
my wife to a new beginning. Again, congratulations, and keep going.
W. Q. Richards -
I have a close friend who is a
nudist. He would always tell me how wonderful the lifestyle is and that
he wanted me to try it. I had thought about it, since the feeling of
clothing is so restrictive to me. I was living in situation that did not
allow me to be that free.
Every time we would meet, he would say, one of
these days I am going to take you to my beach. He had told me about
Haulover and how I would love it. He said he did not want to go alone
and that is why he did not go often. Well the day arrived and we went.
The first time, I have to admit, was a little
strange. I did not take off all of my clothes due to restrictions which
will go unnamed. However the feeling of being top free was absolutely
wonderful. The real experience however was to come the following
weekend. I asked him to take me back. I could not wait to
experience the feeling of total nudity! We walked the famous walk from
the parking lot to the beach, put the blanket down, and I just took my clothes
(or what little I was wearing) off.
The strange thing, my friend just sat down on
the beach chair. I put on my sun block and lay down on the blanket.....
cannot describe the feelings that swept over me as the ocean breezes
"kissed" my body and I was one with the sun...... there is nothing as
wonderful as going into the water and feeling it surround your entire body!
He was absolutely amazed at the way I just took
to the lifestyle....... it's not for all of us...... but I am so glad that I
found this wonderful piece of paradise.....I was also amazed at how quiet the
beach can be, even with so many people. Haulover Beach is my place to
relax, to get away from it all. I have been to Lake Como as well.
These are two different experiences, of course. As I said, it is not for
everyone, but if you try it, please go with an open mind...... you meet the
nicest people at the clothing optional beach or resort.

I became a nudist in a very indirect
way. I was planning my coming summer holidays and was trying to decide between
Byron Bay and Port Stephens and was discussing the two options with a number of
work colleagues and eventually my boss. He told me he would be holidaying in
Port Stephens and was full of recommendations so I continued my research and
discovered that Byron Bay was going to be too expensive and continued the
discussions with my boss about Port Stephens. He told me he would be spending
most of his time at Samurai Beach, and that it had good surf and a very friendly
crowd. So on this information I researched Samurai Beach and discovered it was a
legal clothing optional beach.
I eventually booked some accommodation and
when I told him this I said, "So, I'll be able to go to the nude beach
with you and your family, won't I". He closed his office door and we
had a long conversion about naturism, and
that this was not a topic for general distribution in the office. He also
surprised me by inviting me and a friend to travel with his family Samurai
Beach prior to the summer holidays and see if naturism was for me.
After a conversation with my best friend, we
agreed this was a good idea and have set a date for early November.
But my first time came a lot quicker than that. Two days later my boss and I
were assigned to spend two weeks working in New Caledonia and were able to
fit in a few days on the beach or out on an associate's boat exploring the
atolls and cays offshore from Noumea.
The day we arrived we went to the beach at
Anse Vata on the edge of the capital city of Noumea. I had not expected to
spend any time on the beach so that afternoon I started on the beach in a
pair of gym shorts and top. After fifteen minutes, I realized that I was out
of place with that amount of clothing on as it seemed every woman on the
beach was wearing no more than a thong - even the 14 and 15 year old girls.
So I stripped down to just the thong I was
wearing under my shorts - it seemed strange wearing so little in front of my
boss (he was wearing his Speedos) but he appeared to not even notice, which
really made me more comfortable.
That was the Sunday and we worked solidly
until the following Friday which we had off in preparation to work the
weekend. As I said he had arranged for the two of us to borrow a boat and do
some exploration so at 8:30 we
left from Port Moselle in a 24 foot half cabin runabout and headed for Ilôt
As soon as we had cleared the marina he was
down to his Speedos, and suggested that I could strip down if I wanted. I
told him if he wanted to go nude, I didn't mind - so as we cleared the
harbour and passed the last house he was nude at the wheel and I was wearing
only my thong. We sailed on for an hour before we pulled up in the leeward
of a beautiful white sand island inside a coral lagoon.
As my boss set the anchor I decided it was now or never and I slipped out of
my thong. Apart from the two of us there was not another soul to be seen -
we spent the morning snorkeling (nude), sun bathing (nude), eating (nude).
I don't now why but the feeling of the water
and the sun on my body was so different - exhilarating - than it had been a
few days earlier when I was wearing only a little more.
Just after eleven another boat arrived and
dropped four couples and six teenage kids at the beach before the boat
disappeared, presumably back to Noumea. After they had set up camp of a few
umbrellas and towels on the sand, the adults stripped off completely - soon
followed by the teenagers.
I was astounded to see teenage boys and girls
naked in front of each other, and in front of their parents, and mentioned
this to my boss.
We then had a long talk about naturism and
how it crosses all age groups - and after all I was only a few years older
than these kids. He then suggested we should swim in and say hello and have
a chat. This seemed like a big step - to be naked in front of strangers -
but he convinced me into the water and onto the beach.
After a series of "Bonjours" and
apologies for poor French we quickly fell into conversation and were offered
drinks and an invitation to stay for lunch. We brought the boat into the
shallows and spent the rest of the day with our new friends.
All up we spent seven hours naked that day
and I think it was one of the most enjoyable days of my life. I was very
surprised by the generosity and friendliness of the people and the ease with
which the kids interacted. I found the youngest was 13 and the eldest 18 but
there was a continuous rapport among them.
It was obvious that naturism was worth
