On May 11, 2009, I got up early and freehiked the Dump Trail. I got within probably ten minutes of the Redlands Dump before turning around. It would probably only take 40 minutes to hike from Redlands to Olive Dell, and most of the hike could be done nude. It was a hazy day so the views of the valley from the top were not as spectacular as normal. I did see a rattle snake along the way.
When I returned, we worked nude in our garden. I finished digging a large portion of the trail while PJ cleaned her garden villages. Then we placed rocks along the trail. We have about finished a camp site to the side of our garden (take notice friends who’d like to visit.) It was a hot day so we stopped gardening just before lunch, walked to the clubhouse for a shower (by the way, taking a shower together is so nice, especially because we have the opportunity to scrub each other’s back), and drove down to Redlands and then Moreno Valley for lunch and shopping.
When we returned later in the afternoon I planted the flowers we’d purchased while PJ lined more of the path with rocks. Then we showered again and soaked with twelve people in the spa.
Naturism is such a wonderful social lifestyle. Living in a house in a typical neighborhood we hardly got to know our neighbors, let alone interact with them. Living at a naturist resort we get to know and interact with people every evening. Something else I notice is the complete lack of sexual overtone at a resort. We totally forget we’re naked working in our garden, and everyone is naked sitting at dinner or soaking in the hot tub. It’s all totally normal. No one is coming on to us in any sexual way; we never even think about sex.
