I’ve been exploring it myself, and Malgorzata and Harry have also been over there doing some photos for this post.
Mal(gorzata) had gone there with Harry to show you a couple of poses from the Eternal Dreams advent calendar. Free on the day, L$10 to buy if you missed them. And a couple of ‘naturist friendly’ poses they are too! If you’re into your poses, you may want to be checking back there each day. In the dark days before Christmas it’s good to reminisce about those warm, lazy naked afternoons in a meadow somewhere. The location for the poses above were indeed at Lake Nekid, in the environs of the ruins that occupy a corner of the sim.
But there’s so much more to it than that.
It’s set in woodland, so there’s a different vibe to it than you might find at some of the ‘golden sands’ naturist sims that are around. I like that. Providing a different option in terms of the topography is always good.
The first thing that apparently grabbed Mal was the water slide. In a week of new naturist experiences in SL (see our post on Naked Golf) that was new to Mal (new to me too in the context of SL)
There’s a few images of naked waterslides on the net, but prior to seeing this photo of Mal I’d not seen one in SL.
Lake Nekid is owned and run by Mike and Courtney.
After all of that activity, Mal takes to the deckchairs.
The resort offers rental huts at a stunning L$50 per week, so if you’re looking for an entry level home on a naturist resort, I’d suggest you look no further.
I’ve only used one of the exercise photos Harry forwarded to me (above), but you get the idea. What a fun looking pose, next to Lake Nekid’s dance floor and lifeguard station. I must teleport back over there and try some of these out for myself. There’s several other attractions I’ve not even begun to blog in this post, including the longer, tunnel water slide and an underwater area, to name two.
I’ve already decided that next Saturday night, December 9th, I’m going to hold one of my irregular ‘surgeries’ in SL at Lake Nekid, at their dance floor, and will probably be hanging around for a couple of hours in my RL evening (roughly 1100am-100pm SL time). I’ll firm this up as my week progresses, but check back to this post which I’ll update (below my signature) closer to the time if you want to call over and say ‘hi’.
I’ve spoken to Mike, the co-owner of Lake Nekid, and he tells me the build is essentially an SL version of a sim he ran in another virtual world. I have to say there are a lot of nice little touches that don’t make it seem like a typical SL build, and it is possible that he’s had a slightly different mindset when operating in another sim platform that he’s applied to the SL version. It just gives the place a little twist that I can’t quite put my finger on that gives it something of a unique feeling.
Mike also pointed me in the direction of Lake Nekid’s own Flickr page, so you can check out some rather lovely looking photographs that show it off in its best light. As usual in midweek, I’m rather strapped for SL inworld time, but I hope to see some of you over at Lake Nekid at the weekend (and hopefully before).
It’s late in the day to advise of this, but I’ll be at Lake Nekid this evening, Saturday.
