Nude swimming is a wonderful thing

Hey folks.

Did you miss me?

I was gone for a week and I loved it. It would have been even better had the week been a month, but sometimes things just don’t happen the way we want them to. I’m sure you know how that feels. (If not, let me know how you manage that.)

Ocean beach
Ocean, Canary Islands

During that week I went out for a swim in the ocean. Some of you might live next door to an ocean so for you it’s probably not a big thing, but for many others, like me, it is. Going into that enormous expanse of crystal clear water (see above picture), knowing that almost all that water is connected to the rest of the world, is quite an experience if you stop to think about it.

When I got into the water, I was prepared for it to be cold. Oceans tend to cool down at the end of November. Still, it wasn’t too cold for a swim (not even for me!). I loved it.

There was a swimming pool at the place where we stayed. That water was definitely too cold. I still wonder why that wasn’t just one block of ice.

The ocean experience, though, was fabulous. I realised that I was in touch with that water, water that was in touch with all other places in the world, give or take a few.

I wasn’t in the water alone. There were four others, also entirely nude, enjoying the early morning swim. It was a fabulous experience. (Unfortunately my girlfriend wasn’t there at that moment, she had to tend to something personal.)

Next time we’ll swim there together. Naked. In that big water.

  1. Welcome back!

    Sounds like you had an excellent time! all the positive Ions of the waves against the shore, so blissful especially when you get to swim the way you want to! People that live near a coast do not know how lucky they are! in the middle of our winter too the water still felt very warm as well, though the weather at beaches here does not compare to where you are, though, you do not get sharks or jellyfish i am guessing!

  2. There are benefits to living near an ocean. Aside from beaches, there is the moderating effect of the water on the weather. I warms up the wind in the winter and cools it in the summer.

    However, being near an ocean does not mean being near a nude beach. I less than 10 minutes from the ocean but the nearest nude beach is 2.5 hours away……. So a day at my ‘local’ nude beach requires a 5 hour round trip. I am not amused.
