A visit to the Nudist camp

I'll bet that title got your attention!  Okay, keep reading.

This is  my Christmas Tree - it has little red jingle bells for ornaments and is hanging from a little hook Velcrowed on under my bed mattress.  It's perfect!  I really like it and it's right where I can see it all day.  After Christmas it will be stored under my mattress in the corner so it will be completely out of the way.  This is exactly what I was looking for last year.

And that's my Christmas Amaryllis Bulb that Hazel brought me a while ago.  It's really growing. If I remember right, when the flower starts coming up, it will be MUCH taller, and I'll probably have to put it on the floor.  It's going to be interesting to see how tall it grows and what color the flower is. :)


This is where Katie always stays when my duvet is in the laundromat being washed. She loves that down comforter!
Class A being towed on a flatbed out of the camp area.  I've never seen this before.  What  a bummer for the owners!

Hazel and the Greyhounds came over for a visit yesterday afternoon.  We had a nice visit, as always, and Hazel and I decided to visit the Nudist Camp right down the street from my campsite.  It's right across from me and down a little.  Katie and I walked right past it on a couple of our walks, and I didn't realize it.  Of course, the rigs aren't right on the road. :)  There is a little sign with an "N" and some arrows, but I didn't know what they meant.   Last year some of the Dingbats were taking about that area, saying they had driven through but had never seen any people.  Well, let me tell you...

But first, here are some things of interest in that campground area.  They have some beautiful, very tall and multi-armed Saguaros there.  Many more than where I am.  Must be God's way of keeping everyones eyes looking up.


They have tons of beautiful Saguaros in this area.  This one is super tall and has a dozen arms, I think. New green arms are growing from the bottom.

As we were driving along we noticed three men in different places walking around their rigs sans clothing. It was a beautiful warm day with a slight breeze; I guess it was perfect for nude-ness.  I've never been in a nudist camp before, but at this point in my life, not a big deal from a distance. I will say, though, they were all a very dark brown (like the nude bookseller in town, Paul Winer) and I hope they use sunblock!

When I saw these, I was jumping out of the car with my camera.  Someone made some beautiful rock art.  There are four of them, and they are very big.  I had to hold my camera up as high as I could to get a decent shot.  Kind of like crop circles, but smaller, if you are familiar with what those are.
 




I saw the man below heading toward his rig, completely naked.  He was parked right near the circles above and may have been the rock artist.  Of course I wasn't going to go over and ask him about them.  I would have if he had clothes on.  Hazel said he was walking around outside the rig while I was there, so maybe he was waiting to tell me about them.  "Sorry, Charlie.  No shoes, no shirt, no pants, no conversation."

When I got back in the car, he turned to go into his rig and I was going to snap his photo from the rear.  I would have posted that one as is, but at the last minute he turned around.  I definitely got more than I bargained for, and it wouldn't have been fair to post his picture in my blog so I put some digital scrapbooking graphics over him.  A loin cloth and a facial disguise.  I didn't want him to be recognizable, and I certainly didn't want to be publishing porn.


If you are interested in camping in a clothing optional area, there is a place here where you can do that.  There were little rigs, big rigs, some very expensive looking rigs, some plain sites and some decorated very nicely - all kinds of people just like the rest of us.  I'm not that brave, but it's nice that a lot of people are that free. When you wake up in the morning, you just never know what you're going to see that day. ; )

From Me and Katie, have a great Sunday, everyone!  :)

  2. When we had our own pool and hot tub I loved swimming in the raw and relaxing in the tub. But it was private! I have seen many nude men at some of the San Francisco street fairs in the 90's, can't be shocked any more.

  3. Loved your post as always! Okay, I have been to one nudist camp - our running club had a 10k race at one called "Bare as you Dare". I went for the t-shirt, honest! When we signed up and got our numbers for the race, they asked, "Pins or string?". I was puzzled only for a second - then I hastily choked out "PINS!!!! PINS!!!!!" (Yes I was fully clothed!!!!).

    Couldn't help but get a giggle from your description of the nudists, then the statement "There were little rigs, big rigs, some very expensive looking rigs, some plain sites and some decorated very nicely". Hmmmm. Same thing I experienced at my one and only nudist camp experience. HAHAAAA!

  4. The rock art is impressive... especially the Kokopeli. It must take a lot of work to construct those. I'd like to see those someday.

  10. The first I discovered the nudist campe I was walking with three others right through it. We didn't realize it was a nudist camp until we noticed all the folks without clothes. One man caught up to us and walked with us out of the area. Aargh ... we walked fast.

  11. Thank you! It's been quite some time since I've laughed so hard. It was good for my heart. I may just hop around naked in my rig tonight. Go outside?? Too many mosquitoes giving me itches in private places!! ;)

  13. This was a great post I love the face you gave that guy. But the rock art is really something that had to take awhile.
    Love you Christmas tree perfect size for a rig.

  14. Dang, maybe I can talk George into Quartzite now! Lol.. 8-)

  15. Somehow the thought of old naked people (which most of them are) just isn't real exciting. But your post is hysterical.

  16. Guess that answered my question about going to Quartzsite... lol!
    Rock art? yes. Nudist? no thank you, I'll pass.... I'd rather paint some saguaros ;-)

  17. I really like your little Christmas Tree it is the perfect size.

    Interesting rock art, I wonder if it was the guy you saw that created it. Makes one wonder with no pockets how did he move all those rocks?

    Having lived in New Orleans all my life and spending many a Mardi Gras in the French Quarters nudity is old hat, but MY clothes are not optional!

    Enjoy you blog.

  18. Love the little tree for Christmas. The rock art is neat. Doubt if the "nude art" you saw was nearly as appealing.

  19. I laughed out loud wondering what the expression was on the nudists' face when you accidentally took a picture of him from the front.

  20. Thanks for the giggle! Lovin' the rock art. Hmmm.. why is it the folks who embrace nudity are the ones we wish would keep their clothes ON? :)

  21. Can't help but look at his bicycle seat and think "eeeewwwwhh!!" (Loved the loin cloth! LOL!!)

  22. I'm glad people feel free to do that sort of thing. Me, I get to vibrating at the wrong frequency and I could put out an eye or sprain my back. Too risky. Best some things stay contained.

  23. Nudist here and heading to The Magic Circle. Lifetime member of aanr.com. I travel in a 23 foot Winnebago Outlook. Can't wait to hit the inner circle. I suggest you venture on over to the nude area and introduce yourself. Were a great group of friendly RV'ers.
