A true East Coaster, I have lived my entire life in Nova Scotia, and could not imagine living any place where I could not drive to the sea within a half hour. I am married, have worked for over 40 years for a local oil company, enjoy a lot of activities, such as spending time with family, going out to dance or to eat with our friends, gardening, wine tasting, anything Disney, and - when the weather cooperates - relaxing at our local clothing optional beach. I was first introduced to naturism by my husband in 1986. He took me to the local nude beach, Crystal Crescent, just outside of Halifax and that was it. I became a naturist, and in 1993 we became members of the FCN.
My husband and I were part of the initial group of beachgoers that banded together in 1990 following an attempt by the RCMP to close the beach down, and founded the non-landed Bluenose Naturist Club. We have been active members of the Bluenose Naturist club since the inception, and I have served as the treasurer of the club since 2008. My husband has been president for the last two years.
My husband and I both love to travel. Many of our trips are planned either around visiting a naturist resort or beach, or seeing if one close by that will fit into our trip. We have visited many clubs and/or beaches in Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, New England, California, Florida, and until the hurricane had been going to Club Orient every second year. Our first Bare Necessities nude cruise was in 2014 and we have now been on 5 and are booked on our 6th for February 2021. As retirement is approaching in the next couple of years, we are compiling a list of beaches and clubs we still want to visit.
