Neighbor
« on: August 17, 2020, 11:22:04 PM »


The other day I was walking down the north side of our house along the side yard toward the back when I heard my neighbor's side patio door open. The fence is 6' yet I could see that the top of the door was open and assumed he would be out back somewhere.  There was something I wanted to ask him about.  There is a step up near the back of our yard for about 6' until the gate to the alley is reached.  At the step up the fence is around 5.5'on our side yet not on his as there is no change in grade. It is a good place to talk over the fence.  As usual I was nude and had been gardening and did not want to go find my shorts and get dressed just to speak with him so I figured it would just look like I was shirtless speaking over the short part of the fence.  I figured he was some where in the back and if I could get his attention I'd just ask my question and that would be it.  As I reached the back yard and took the step up toward the short part of the fence I noticed the top of his head right next to me just on the other side.  I started getting that sort of titillating feeling of exposure being so close as there are a couple of spaces in the fence panels where someone close could see through.

He was looking at something around his back fence and didn't notice me until I popped my head over to speak with him.  We kind of startled each other as he didn't hear me approach and as I looked over the fence I noticed he was shirtless as well and clad only in a loose sarong that looked like it was about to fall off.

He has been working from home during the shut down and said he was just out to get his 15 minutes of sun. I'm sure now that he was working nude in the house and just threw the sarong on to go outside. I think he felt a bit awkward at me seeing him dressed like that and I was a bit flustered myself as I didn't quite know how to put him at ease and tell him I was nude anyway. I'm not very good at thinking on my feet. I wanted to say something yet could only say it was nice he could work from home and be so comfortable. He agreed and laid back in a chair pulling the sarong up so that just his crotch was covered and I went back to my gardening.

He has a younger girlfriend who I've seen getting out of her car rather scantily clad in some sort of sarong a couple of times and if I take some garden veggies over at times she answers the door in a robe.  I guess we have nudist neighbors.  The next time I run into him, I'm going to suggest we declare each others property clothing optional and just assume that if one of us is out back that we are nude and no reason to cover up outside for each other.

Anyone have a similar experience or have any ideas how to bring the subject up?

We had a non-landed club in the 1990's and someone inquired. It was the next door neighbor, of one of the active cohorts. She had a pool and then a few parties. Does like energy sometimes attract? ;)

About 20 years ago we lived in Albuquerque.  Our back yard was semi-private.  The south side had a high fence so the family with children couldn't see us.  The back had a row of poplar trees blocking commercial buildings across the alley.  The North side only had a 4 foot concrete block wall. The next door house on that side was vacant.

One day young woman came to the wall and said she was buying the home, and had just moved in.  She asked if we minded if she sunbathed naked in her yard.  Not a problem we said, if you don't mind seeing us naked we don't mind you.  That lasted about two weeks when her financing fell through, the purchase didn't go through, so she had to move out again.

The next owners were a very nasty couple who kept two very barking dogs in their back yard, but we never saw them.  We ignored the dogs and kept going naked on our patio and hot tub, etc.  The dogs destroyed their grass and gardens, generally made a mess of their yard. 

One year a glass top table disappeared from our patio while we were on vacation.  Stolen.  The next summer we were out for a walk on our street.  The nasty neighbors had their front door open so we could see inside while walking past.  There in their living room was our glass top table.  It wasn't worth starting a big fight over so we didn't, but we never wanted to talk to them again.  We would much have preferred the nude sunbather.

Wow, that's some brass necked cheek to purloin goods from their neighbour and use it themselves!!!

Sorry for the late post. The timing here is from a couple months back. This is continued from the first neighbor post about 3 or 4 weeks after the first encounter.

Until a few days ago I hadn't spoken with my neighbor (Tim) since our last conversation over the fence except for one quick chat where he was once again outside in a loose hanging sarong.   

The step up place where we talked is also a great place to cool down in the breeze after a brisk evening walk or to dry off after an evening skinny dip. During our prior conversation I had noticed a couple of panels on top of the fence I put up years ago were getting some weather damage. I had removed them to measure them for replacements so the fence was a bit lower than before.

It has been so very warm and muggy this late summer and fall that I have been nude most all the time, dressing in shorts and shirt only to go out in the world. I usually would take a pair of shorts and shirt out back to have in case someone came over yet with social distancing there's just no need as no one comes by. Somewhere along the line I just stopped and became a no net back yard nudist.  Our neighborhood is near the coast so generally no one has a/c and we rely on the sea breeze which works most of the time yet in late summer/fall we can get a period of hot and humid doldrums.

One recent evening while standing there enjoying the warm ocean breeze after a swim I happened to notice that with the panels down there was a small view into Tim's living room. Not much just a lit area between the living room and hallway. At that moment I saw a fleeting image of a person passing to the hallway toward the rear of the house.  A moment later a light when on in the rear bedroom and there stood Tim in the bright light as nude as me. The light was only on a few seconds and then I saw him again pass from the hallway into the living room toward the couch.  No big deal yet it confirmed what I suspected that he is at least a home nudist at times.  l

Then on the weekend I was out back in the garden puttering around when I heard a noise and happened to look up.  There was my neighbor up on his roof trying to cover a leak area with what  appeared to be a large tarp. Apparently his roof is in need of some repair. I was nude and I didn't know if he had seen me so I quietly slipped out of view.

After a few minutes he left the roof and after waiting a while I felt safe enough to venture nude back out into the garden as there were things I needed to get done.  I was working on the opposite side of the yard from Tim's and facing away form his place checking seedlings, watering, cleaning bird baths and doing some light pruning etc.. After finishing I headed toward Tim's side of the yard to check the little garden plot on that side of the yard.

As I started across the yard I noticed a lot more stuff on Tim's roof, buckets and other weighted objects to hold down the tarp than had been there earlier. I often lose myself in nature when nude gardening as with nude hiking the heightened senses and a merging harmony with nature one loses the sense of time. I  realized that I had probably been working almost an hour in the garden and that Tim had made several trips up to his roof in order to get the dozen or more items that now lay on the roof up there. I surmised that he must have seen me given the number of trips up and down the ladder he had to have made. At the time I saw no one on the roof from my angle so I continued on.

About half way across the yard I caught sight of Tim walking from another part of his roof looking right at me and heading in my direction to a ladder propped up against his house. I was completely exposed caught nude and there was nothing I could do. There were no cover or clothes anywhere to put on.  I kept my gaze down yet I knew he had seen me as we were maybe 20 ft from each other.  As I reached the side yard area he was just climbing down the ladder with his back to me.

He began moving things around just on the other side of the fence. It was way too hot for clothes for me and I knew he had seen me and I didn't want to have to leave the yard every time he went on the roof so I called to him and met him at the back where we could talk over the fence. We made small talk about the shutdown and family separation for a few minutes.  He was shirtless wearing some loose shorts and sandals and made no comment about seeing me nude..
I offered him some patio furniture we were getting rid of so he could enjoy the sun better.  He gladly accepted and I began collecting the pieces of a lounger and cushion to pass over the fence.  The fence was already a couple panels lower and I removed a couple more so that it was just below waist high to get the last big piece over. Being only a foot or so away from each other, If he hadn't already seen me nude, he did now. As I did so I said that I hoped he didn't mind my dress code and he smiled and said not at all as we wished each other a good day.

As I said, it was a very hot and humid  and as we have no a/c, a long  evening swim in the pool is the best way to cool off before bed.  So that evening, after my swim I went to the side yard between our homes at the step up to catch any available warm sea breeze to help dry off. I'd yet to replace the fence panels I'd removed so the view in his yard was pretty substantial. Tim's windows were all open from the heat I suppose and the place was kind of lit up. I wasn't really paying much attention yet I caught sight of some movement and just caught sight of Tim and his girl friend crossing from the living room to the hall and then they returned a few seconds later.  It was a quick glance yet I could see both were nude as they returned toward their couch.
It also explained some of the barely clothed outfits I'd seen his girlfriend wearing around outside or around the neighborhood.
 
Next summer when its hot I'll invite them over for evening swims after this lock down is over.

Lovely story, JayB (oh dear nearly Jbee!!!!!!!!!!)
I trust you all will gradually come together and form a little naturist community together.
Have you got other neighbours?

A naturist friend had neighbors move in next door years ago. They discovered each other, I believe, through the local naturist non-landed club. They both had swimming pools. Events happened at their homes. They got along. They had a gate put in the wall.

I actually think this might be workable as the neighbors on the other side of Tim might just go for it and the wife across the street one night when a bit tipsy suggested a girls night skinny dipping party in our pool so I'll see how things work out with time.  There really is no place for clothes when it is hot and muggy.  Their just something you sweat into.

I'd definitely pursue that post haste. A nude neighborhood could evolve in increments and steps. How unusual a blessing from the blue that would be.

Our neighborhood has been pretty quiet with the virus lock down over the last year so there has been very little close contact with neighbors other than quick hellos and social distanced conversations. Alot have pre-existing conditions so a lot of respectful distance was maintained even though it is a close knit neighborhood.  As things open up unexpected encounters are starting to occur.
As I had written before, I stopped carrying shorts around with me for a quick coverup last year as no one was coming to our door or near the house.

The other day I was walking nude down the side yard toward the front when I heard a noise near the front gate.  I looked over the gate on the side and my neighbor's gf was standing right on the other side. She was doing some cleaning. She saw me right away and we kind of startled each other. The gate is high enough for privacy yet there is about an inch gap on each side of the gate. I was standing by the gap to look around the gate so she could tell right away I was nude.  She doesn't wear the most clothes either in the summer at times yet today she was fully dressed. We talked several minutes catching up. I know they are home nudists yet is seems almost silly asking do you mind that I'm nude in such a situation. It was almost like being at a naturist resort as the subject just didn't come up.

I'll invite them over for a swim when the weather warms up next month and we can sort things out and discuss a gate.

On another note. It was very strange this morning sitting in the back having some tea. I got this strange feeling like I was nude in public or something and I couldn't shake it.  I was nude yet am almost always nude in my yard.  I'd also had the same feeling when out clothed in public the last few days.
Then I realized I was feeling the breeze hitting my face without a mask.  I had to laugh. I've never worn a mask in the house or yard yet in the last few days being out in public without a mask has made me feel exposed and almost ashamed.  How silly.

Eek! Don't say that. You might give those goofy textiles ideas, like banning faces because the holes in them could be used as sex organs, exposed! You, give 'em am inch and they take a mile...  :-X

A face must be understood to be just more skin...like genitals. ;D
