At last a naturist

Postby johnmartin » Mon Mar 02, 2015 3:03 pm

I have wanted to be a naturist for about 35 years but somehow never got round to it. Last year when we had some good weather I decided it was about time I was a naturist. So the next day I got on the train to the nearest naturist beach to enjoy the weather and the fresh air and sun on all my body.The freedom was exhilarating. The day was thoroughly enjoyable.
This year I plan a few days at a naturist club and I have already entered for a naked run. I look forward to more natural freedom.

John, I'm glad to read you finally took the plunge. Nakedness in nature is great isn't it? I'm only sorry it took me a very long time as well but so glad I became a nudist about 4 1/2 years ago.

Congratulations John on your new found freedom. I envy you that you have a free beach so close to you (or any beach for that mater) I am about 900 miles inland (I don't know how many Km without doing the math, I guess about 1500) and Wyoming is too cold most of the year to support a resort so I am mostly stuck in my house. What held you back for 35 yrs, and after that long what made you take the plunge?

Which beach? Also, you may want to look for closer venues that are not necessarily beaches.

The Beach was Brighton nudist beach. Very much pebbles but on good days you get a good crowd of fellow nudists there. Also Brighton town is a very interesting place to visit.Will be there for the Beach Boys and the Moody Blues in June.
I will be going to other nudist venues this year that are not beaches.
It took me so long to be a naturist as work and life in general took over my time. Oh what a mistake to have left it so long.

John, by chance does the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew have a naturist day?
I was there on a surprisingly warm sunny day in June and thought to myself, "These clothes are quite unnecessary!".

It was Ian and Barbara Pollard in Malmsbury UK who hosted a gardening show on television.
They have, sorry to say, divorced and the garden has been sold.
Formerly known as Laskett Gardens, the Pollards revived it and naturists from all over came to visit.
I would like to see naturists take charge of it once again!

Jim, in addition to the visual appeal of the garden, there is something so natural about people in their natural state in mankind's original home: a garden.

I cannot be sure but I would be very surprised if the Royal Botanic Gardens have a naturist day.

Great place for it, though.

All the pictures of people gardening in their natural state are beautiful to look at. I'd sure love to join any of them.

I'd just like to be able to garden, Wyoming's growing season is so short that it is not even worth it. I once planted four tomato plants on the southern exposure of the house right next to the foundation for warmth. I got one ripe tomato before the first frost, I had a bunch of green ones but only one got ripe. I gave up. Nude gardening would be even better, but once again one must worry about frost on the fruit.
