Glen Eden, just what the Dr ordered.
I was introduced to social nudity through skinny dipping at hot springs, then later in the early 70’s I went to The Esalen Institute where nudity is embraced as a part of personal growth programs including massage classes. Fast forward almost 50 years to last summer when I visited Glen Eden for the first time. I had moved to Washington a few years ago and I needed an alternative place to stay on my ten day visit to So Cal, where I was attending my 50th High School reunion in Arcadia. I’m retired and I just can’t afford nor do I want to spend $200.00= for a measly motel room. I’ve found that RV camps are the most cost effective and camps like Glen Eden are very affordable way less than $100 a night. The grounds are well kept and sparkling clean, including the white tiled restrooms. The people are friendly, but I have to admit,that I was surprised that the younger generations seem not to be well represented. I was in my teens when I first got naked with strangers, and now that I’m in my late 60’s I was surprised to find out that the average age is around 60! Go figure. With all the kids of today being liberated beyond my wildest dreams, they evidently don’t cater to social nudity. Go figure! The people and culture of Glen Eden is family oriented, with mostly retired senior couples as members who live there and visit there. As a single male guest, I was treated like anyone else. I was most comfortable. With all the activities and good food, Glen Eden is a delightful place to just bask in the sun or lay around the pool, or you can go hiking, play tennis, poker, and pickleball all day long! Bring a towell.
