So far it’s been a wonderful Summer (even though, in reality, it’s still Spring). I have been able to go to Rock Haven Lodge every week-end, except for one when I was out of town. The weather has been cooperating, so I’m able to get my fix just about every week-end. People comment about how tan I am getting. Most people know that I go to Rock Haven, but not everyone. That’s OK, not everyone appreciates the therapy value of Social Nudism.
We have an above ground pool in our back yard. It was here when we bought the house and has a deck built halfway around the pool. At 33′ across, this is the largest above ground pool that I have ever seen. Last Summer we didn’t close the pool, so it looked like a big green lily pond. It took a while, but I finally got it cleaned out, and today was the first time this season my grandchildren were able to get in. They love this pool. I love this pool also. The only thing that would make it better is if I could lay out in the sun nude on the deck. I don’t think the neighbors, my grandchildren, or my children would appreciate that!
If you ever think about getting a pool just remember one thing. It’s a money pit. It takes a lot of time and money to keep the pool sparkling clean throughout the summer. I have had a lot of people tell me that salt water pools are much easier, and less expensive, to maintain. I just don’t know if I would enjoy swimming in salt water.
My depression is better than it was over the Winter. I don’t know if it’s the copious amounts of Vitamin D I’m soaking up from the sun, or feeling the hot sunshine on my bare butt, but it’s working! I’m constantly amazed at the people at Rock Haven. Nobody is a stranger there. Even if it’s your first time there, everyone makes you feel so welcome. That does wonders for my depression also. I love the feeling of anticipation as I go through the gate at Rock Haven, and hate it when I have to get dressed when I leave. There are 17 more weeks before Rock Haven closes for day visits. I’m a member now, and members can visit at anytime. I’m hoping that we have an Indian Summer that lasts through October! 🙂
