Sun, skin, water

Cool, cool water

Perhaps it was the unseasonably warm weather. Perhaps it was the cold water, so clear and sparkly, so tempting. Perhaps it was because we had just spend the afternoon talking and giggling and joking around. We are a group of friends who confide in each other, who support each other, who know each other well.

We had gathered near the lake for a photo shoot, hoping for a nice picture that we could frame and hang up, as a reminder of our friendships. We all had clothes on, of course, even socks and shoes. Quilt Artist had set her camera up on an overturned canoe so she could use her timer and get a photo of the whole group.

But we kept edging closer to the lake, the waves, the ripples of reflected sun. Soon Beautiful Hair was taking off her shoes. Makes Bread wriggled out of her jeans. Gorgeous Eyes waded into the water to take a photo, then tossed her camera ashore. Before long the cameras and clothes were piled on the stone wall that edges the lake, and women were splashing in the water.

The cold weather is coming, and winters here are long. It's best to get naked when you can.

Getting warm in the sun

The best part of the picture is seeing the goosebumps.

Cathy said...

the goosebumps are "de bomb"

I just want to know how your site meter stats are with all this nakedness going on :)

Even your word verification is getting weird.

"It's best to get naked when we can." This should be the subtitle of this blog.

And how is that water?

Cathy said...

Thirdcat, I would think the goosebumps are indicative of the water's temperature. BRRRRRRR!!!!

"It's best to get naked when you can." - That's always been my motto. :-)

Taking that up as my motto.

Cathy: The nakedness, surprisingly, doesn't really affect my site meter stats, although my Flickr site (where I put the photos) does get way more hits when I put up that kind of photo.

Tie-dye brother-in-law: Yes, it's surprising I haven't put up a nude photo of you yet ....

To extend the nakedness season,I recommend naked hot tubbing.
