Some weeks ago I was looking at the website of a French naturist location, and seeing what it had to offer. I do now tend to return, again and again, to the same Spanish location for naturist holidays, and probably will do so until my children are a few years older, when the likes of France and Croatia may open up as ‘adventure playground’ places for kids who can ride bikes, for example. For now, the sand, paddling, building sandcastles and so on is all they’re interested in, so Spain is ideal right now.
Of course, I have been at several French locations in the past. I love France, and its entire culture. I remember that we drove -in the BC years, before children– from Calais and really immersed ourselves in the mood by listening to some old French pop music, Johnny Hallyday, France Gall, Francoise Hardy and Serge Gainsbourg. We meandered our way down to our chosen campsite over a couple of days, stopping here and there, not pressed for time, and were feeling quite Gallic by the time we got there!
The French do naturism so well, and that extends into SL, with the French Gay Naturist sim and Rokutman’s (who isn’t French, but is obviously something of a Francophile) series of sims from the past really encapsulating the vibe of France.
While looking at what these locations had to offer, it occurred to me that we could extend our coverage of naturist activities, as pursued in real life, even if those naturist activities aren’t necessarily shown in the context of SL naturism. Par example, 🙂 , one site offered canoeing or kayaking as a possible holiday recreation, while another had a climbing wall. I assume the latter was undertaken clothed.
Well, I got word out, and Pookes will be covering kayaking in the next issue of SLN (out next week, folks!) and I also passed this idea onto Barbara and Harry.
Harry has come back with a photo-essay -more to follow featuring other activities- about ‘rock climbing’, at an outdoors adventure sim. I won’t post the slurl just yet, as we intend to undertake further photo-assignments at it, it’s not naturist, and I don’t want the place crawling with avi’s until we capture its wild beauty!
So, combining a further posting in the ‘beautiful scenery’ series of posts, and kicking off a new series, which I’ve sub-grouped as ‘action men’ into one posting, here’s Harry’s photos of Don (who has modelled for SLN before), doing a bit of nude rock climbing in SL.
Naturism seems to lend itself to a bit of physical activity in its recreation, so the ‘action men’ series is intended to replicate a lot of what can be done in SL. Of course, all of these activities can also be undertaken clothed. Watch out for the next issue of SLN next week, in which we’ll begin to explore the outdoors life a lot more.
