The other day I informed one of my friends of the newly planned adventure I had for this weekend. I also informed her it would be a good adventure of the week. Her reaction was that, “It’s more like adventure of the year.” After going through with said adventure, I might agree. On Saturday, a close friend and I (and really, you’d have to be rather close to do something like this together.) went to Hippie Hollow. This is a lake in Austin. Have you guessed what kind of lake it is yet? Did you guess that it was a clothing optional lake? Well, you would be correct. Em and I went to our first nude lake on Saturday. And we were nude. And this was awesome. Sure, I saw some older people in a totally different light than ever before, but I suppose that sometimes comes along with the territory of leading a liberating life. And yes, we are maybe probably out of our mind, but you have to be kind of crazy if you plan on doing it all, no? It was, though at first a little intimidating and giggle-inducing, also one of the most freeing and exhilarating experiences I’ve ever had. I highly recommend trying this running around naked in public thing. You’d be surprised how comfortable you become so quickly AND how good the wind feels on certain parts of your body. Here are the only other pictures I can show you:
As for the rest of my 4th of July weekend (by the way, happy 4th,y’all!), it was pretty perfectly adventurous as well. Not adventure of the year material or anything, but fun and lovely just the same. More pictures:
Barton Springs+Happy hour+Girlfriends= Mondays are sometimes awesome.
