He kept asking, just once, try it once and if you don’t like it I’ll never ask again.
So off we set for Cahir, Co. Tipperary. Nerves were high!
It took us 1 hour and 40 minutes to get there, it felt like a week!
We drove into the car park and suddenly it was real and it was time. I saw lots of men, not many women and 1 couple, who looked a good bit older than us.
“I can’t, please can we go home”. So we turned around and drove home, 1 hour 40 minutes and they flew. He wasn’t angry, he completely understood.
Fast forward to 2 months later and there we were back on the same road again and 1 hour 40 minutes later I’m sitting in the car park again wondering will I or won’t I.
“Okay” I said, “let’s go”. So we went in, there were about 20 people, young, old and everything in between. More men than women, but there were a few.
“Welcome, how are you, have you been before, isn’t the water warm?”
Why didn’t I do this before, the freedom, the feeling of being naked in the water, in the steam room in the sauna.
Natural, free and truly wonderful.
Lots of friends made, lots of events attended, naked gardening, naked walks, naked gallery viewings, life is good.
The INA – why did I wait so long.
