and was attempting to decide between Byron Bay and Port Stephens and was discussing both options using several work collegues and eventually my supervisor. He said he’d be holidaying in Port Stephens and was full of recommendations so I continued my research and discovered that Byron Bay was really going to be too pricey and continued the conversations with my manager about Port Stephens.
He explained he’d be spending the majority of his time at Samurai Beach, and that it had good surf along with a very friendly crowd. So on this particular advice I researched Samurai Beach and discovered it was a legal clothing optional beach.
I eventually booked some accommodation and when I told him this I said, So, Ill manage to visit the nude beach with you along with your own family, wont I.
He shut his office door and we had a long conversion about naturism, and that this was not a subject for general distribution at work. He also surprised me by encouraging me and a buddy to travel with his family Samurai Beach prior to the summer holidays and see if naturism was for me.
After a conversation with my best friend, we agreed this was an excellent idea and have set a date for early November.
But my first time came a lot quicker than that. Two days after my supervisor and I were assigned to spend two weeks working in New Caledonia and were able to fit in a couple of days on the beach or out on an associate’s boat researching the atolls and cays offshore from Noumea.
I ‘d not expected to spend any time on the seashore so that afternoon I started on the beach in a set of gym shorts and top. After fifteen minutes, I realised that I was out of place with that amount of clothing on as it looked every girl on the beach was wearing no more than a thong even the 14 and 15 yo girls.
So I stripped down to just the thong I was wearing under my short pants it looked strange wearing so little in front of my supervisor (he was wearing his Speedos) but he appeared to not even notice, which actually made me more comfortable.
As soon as we’d cleared the marina he was down to his Speedos, and suggested that I could strip down if I desired. I told him if he desired to go nude, I didnt mind so as we cleared the harbour and passed the last house he was naked in the wheel and I was wearing just my thong. We sailed on for an hour before we pulled up in the leeward of a gorgeous white sand island inside a coral lagoon.
As my boss set the anchor I decided it was now or never and I slipped out of my thong. Aside from the two of us there was not another soul to be seen we spent the morning snorkelling (bare), sunbaking (nude), eating (bare). I dont now why but the feeling of the water and the sun on my body was so distinct exhilarating than it had been a few days before when I was wearing just a bit more.
Just after eleven another boat arrived and dropped four couples and six teenaged kids at the shore before the boat vanished, presumably back to Noumea. After they’d set up camp of a few umbrellas and towels on the sand, the adults stripped off fully – soon followed by the teens. I was astounded to see adolescent boys and girls nude in front of each other, and in front of their parents, and mentioned this to my supervisor.
We subsequently had a long conversation about naturism and how it crosses all age groups and after all I was just a few years older than these kids. Then he suggested we should swim in and say hello and have a chat. This seemed like a big measure to be nude in front of strangers but he convinced me into the water and onto the shore.
After a series of Bonjours and apologies for poor French we immediately fell into dialogue and were offered drinks and an invitation to stay for lunch. We purchased the boat into the shallows and spent the rest of the day with our new friends.
All up we spent seven hours nude that day and I think it was one of the very satisfying days of my own life. I was very surprised by the generosity and friendliness of the folks as well as the easy with which the children socialized. I discovered the youngest was http://nudism-life.com and the eldest 18 but there was a constant rapport among them. It was evident that naturism was worth exploring.
