I used to be less attentive than I ‘m now.

I ‘ve in the past gone bare on sometimes pretty busy Spanish shores, carrying nothing and walking purposefully past them for several miles. It’s not illegal there. Folks would notice, but few looked at all troubled. Only once did anyone (a man) thing on the particular reasons that children might see me. As we know, children take no notice of simple nudity, but I did feel worried because I then felt exposed and had no means whatsoever to cover up. I occasionally experienced groups of two or three women expressing apparent approval that I was nude, not that I was looking for that. It was interesting to watch how some couples saw me nude and then removed their clothing.
That was in the past. Exactly like Pete, I agree hiking is a lot more enjoyable in relation to the beach. In addition , I use quieter Spanish beaches where few people pay any attention other than merely noticing, some see me and do the same! Hiking in Spain, it is so silent the opportunities of running into someone are low. Hiking in the UK the chances are higher. If alone I ‘ve tend to vanish off in the bushes, feeling nervous since I have zero wish to offend but scared it might be taken as more than simple nudity. Doing a Spencer Tunick installation has given me a different pespective on how the Brits see nudity. 1700 individuals went nude for several hours in a city in the name of “artwork”. Most weren’t naturists and were quite nervous at first. I actually don’t go naked on UK shores unless lying on my abdomen in a silent area. If a person keeps on walking towards me I don’t generally worry about view , since it’s their choice and I am on a quite broad large seashore, but if it is narrower I sit down and am discreet until they’ve passed. If I see a solitary woman I frequently cover up as we get closer so she is able to feel “safe”. No-one in the UK has ever objected or seemed piqued. Sometimes they’ve been obviously amused, so I simply say hello. You might wonder why I don’t use nudist beaches very frequently. The main reply is simple. Sadly, in the UK and on the smaller Spanish shores there are often various pervs hanging around and I don’t feel as comfortable.
