“Not once?”


“Okay. So, how about today?”

I smiled.

Where I come from nudity is taboo. It’s labeled as counter-culture; a flower child, a hippie, a youth in the midst of rebellious acts, often a European. Those who dare are easily looked down upon, and just as easily, they’re not. But in all manners, public nudity is universally constrained to a few designated, well fenced-off and signposted locales.

She smiled friskily, sensing my ploy. “That’s right. Not many nude beaches in America.”

In the foreground with the umbrellas is the nude beach, and under that cypress tree to the far right my tent lies where I come and go. Often waking in the morning, I find a nude couple lounging peacably. They smile. I smile. We're all nude. It's all good.
