I’m grateful to the Sweet Pitulandia blog for posting this item, and something that will go into my virtual naturist suitcase as well as already being something I own in real life and which is one of the first items that goes into the real life suitcase.
Yes, it’s a gorgeous beach tunic, and as I say it’s an item I own and use almost daily on my naturist holidays. It can be chilly first thing in the morning, even in Spain in summer, so if I wake early a tunic like this is something I’ll throw on while making a nice cup of tea to drink on the terrace while also drinking in the atmosphere. I’ve risen before dawn, often, and the bats can be seen flitting around in blue-black light before the birds begin their morning symphony. It’s memories like this that money can’t buy.
The tunic comes with a bikini in a matching colour. Yes, I own and pack one of those too, you never know when you may end up in a textile situation, even on naturist vacations, but I’ve not bothered to unpack it or wear it for SL purposes.
The tunic can be found at the Emporium Showroom event, and it and the bikini are priced at L$100 for all three items. While I was there, I managed to spot some poses. I’m a sucker for poses. L$65 for the pose being struck in the photo above, and there’s a naturist holiday reason why it captured my imagination.
The tides near Vera Playa tend to erode the beach, and to prevent this happening further, the authorities built a breakwater (see the photo above). Naturists being naturists, it was turned into a landmark, and day and daily you will see naturists posing to take photographs of one another at the end of the breakwater. And yes, I’ve had my own photograph taken there.
x marks the spot
I’ve repeated the photograph, it’s not an upload error 🙂 because ‘x’ marks the spot where I often swim, just tucked in behind the breakwater. It’s a favoured spot because you can leave your shoes (or beach tunic, or keys) on one of the rocks that forms the breakwater, and because of the breakwater I find that even when the seas are slightly rougher it’s still a spot where you can swim without being buffeted, knocked off your feet or get out of your depth readily.
The pose in the top photograph is often one struck by naturists, particularly early in the morning, as the sun is coming up behind them and it’s a pose that seems, well, life-affirming. To be naked there as a fresh day dawns, breathing in and exhaling with pleasure at the sense of paradise that prevails…it’s almost become a naturist beach cliche. There must literally be thousands of us who’ve posed there, and in similar poses too, over the decade or so the breakwater has been in existence.
We keep out of the sun during the hottest part of the day, but as it begins to sink down again, we’ll take the children to the beach. Once more, as shadows lengthen and parts of the beach fall into shade, a beach tunic like this can be thrown on to provide a little protection from the chill one can experience. I’m delighted to have picked these items up, and you can be sure the tunic will be in the virtual naturist suitcase.
