IT'S HIP TO BE BARE Just don't call them colonies.
You know... the places where you hang out in nothing but your belly button and
sneakers to celebrate National Nude Recreation Week. Naturists... who consider "colony" passť... will commemorate the
week with open house events at nude beaches... clubs and resorts around
the country. In California experienced and novice nudists are welcome at
a surfing party in Lacumba... a lawn concert in Los Gatos and a dance in
Corona. In other states nudists can check the internet for information
on local clubs.
Whatever the event... pack
light... your best birthday suit... sunblock...
comfortable shoes and (etiquette dictates) a towel to sit on. Nude
recreation is all about leaving the trappings of modern society says
Carolyn Hawkins... spokesperson for the American Association for Nude
Recreation. "You don't know if someone's blue-collared or
white-collared when they're not wearing a collar..." she said.
