It was our annual family vacation. We’d chosen the Black Sea as our destination and had found a seaside Air BNB instead of a hotel as it was about a third of the cost and was much nicer than any hotel we could afford.
There was one big drawback to the seaside cabana, which we didn’t know about until we got there, and that was its location next to a nudist’s resort. As my husband, Rex, and I had two youngsters, ages ten and twelve, we became nervous about what the kids might see while we were frolicking in the waves.
I admit, we had preconceived notions about what a nudist’s resort was all about. Rex and I imagined it was full of sex addicts, swingers, and cheaters looking for a thrill.
Human nature includes being curious, and being human, we took advantage of the fact we could look into the resort from the upper floor of the cabana and had luckily packed binoculars. We waited until our daughter was in the tub and our son was playing videogames before we casually headed upstairs with the binoculars.
We were very surprised to see that it was a family resort, and individuals of all ages were enjoying the lovely weather in ordinary outdoor activities. We even saw a group of ladies, wearing just red hats, having a tea party on the veranda. In addition to the sea, they had an Olympic-sized swimming pool where dozens of adults were congregated in and around it. As I focused the binoculars I saw someone who looked just like Jax, putting oil on the very lovely back of a woman. I drew my breath in and tried to stay calm, but Rex knew me so well he could tell something was up and grabbed the binoculars. I laughed and said, “Ya got me!”
As Rex was doing his surveillance of the resort, I heard my daughter’s voice from the next room over yelling, “Why is that lady naked???” Not wanting to send the wrong message to my daughter I said, “Some people like to be outside without clothes and that place on the other side of the fence is a club for people who like to be outside without clothes.”
She said, “OK mom, whatever.” Then she walked downstairs to play videogames with her brother.
