skinny-dip marin! [Jun. 12th, 2016|11:10 am]

One thing about the Bay Area is that, despite having this big bay right here, there aren't that many places that are very appealing to go swimming on a hot summer day -- the bay itself, with its muddy shore, mostly seems too icky.

I found an article in a Marin newspaper where the author helpfully includes a list of skinny-dipping locales, some of which sound like great swimming holes:

>>The law [against skinny-dipping] isn't being enforced at the better-known nudie spots, which include Little Beach; Red Rock Beach, south of Stinson Beach; Hagmier Pond, near Dogtown; and Bass Lake, a swimming hole accessible by the Palomarin Trail, or some of the lesser-known spots, including the Inkwell, near Samuel P. Taylor State Park; RCA Beach, near Bolinas; and Sculptured and Limantour beaches in Point Reyes National Seashore.

And, oddly, skinny-dipping and nudity at the main bathing area at Muir Beach would be technically legal because it's National Park Service land, governed by federal law, Berberian says.<<

The inkwells, in particular, look like a perfect summer swimming hole. Dogs are allowed too!

I've been to Bass Lake - camped somewhere on the trail the night before - and have jumped in the water there. (I don't remember how many clothes I had on; probably my undies.)

There's a good nakey beach just south of Santa Cruz, Bonny Doon. Bolinas has the most temperate water in the Bay Area but I'd feel very exposed disrobing there - that said, I doubt most of the hippies would care that much.
