After lengthy trial, nudists evicted from Nuuanu rental home
After a months-long dispute over naked parties at a Nuuanu rental home, a judge has decided the controversial tenants will be evicted.

Neighbors have dealt with all manner of chaos at the home, from parties like Naked Taco Tuesday to a website called “ipartynaked” to a mysterious car fire to bizarre screams and sounds.

Neighbor David Brown, a retired military chaplain, says he’s called police multiple times

“After the police left, the music went back on and then very strange animal noises, moaning like wolf howling sounds,” he said, describing one of the nights he called police.

Sources have told Hawaii News Now police are also investigating allegations of criminal activity at the home, but have made no arrests.

Tenant Amy Highmoor, meanwhile, says the property manager and neighbors are retaliating against them because of their alternative lifestyle and for her complaints about the condition of the home.

“I’ve been brutally harassed like brutally harassed where I’m so scared that I can’t sleep at night,” she said. Continued…Read full original article…

Southleigh Manor nudist holiday park near Newquay is up for sale
If you like your hols in the buff then this place is for you

The largest naturist holiday park in Cornwall is up for sale.

Southleigh Manor holiday park at St Columb Major, near Newquay, has been brought to the market.

The holiday business, where being in the buff is de rigueur, could be yours to own for a cool £1.1 million after owners Bob and Kathy Prescott decided to throw in the towel and enjoy a well-earned retirement.

The pair, who have been running the bare-all holiday park for 18 years, said they made up their mind to sell the site following the recent birth of their grandson, Harry.

Mr Prescott, now 69, said: “We’ve always liked Cornwall ever since coming down here on holidays. We came here to the park 19 years ago and the people who had it were struggling.

“After a conversation we ended up buying up the place. It turned out to be a very expensive holiday but we’ve done well out of it. But with my wife not being in the best of health and the birth of our grandson, we feel it’s time to enjoy our retirement and take it easy a bit more.”

Mr Prescott said that while there have been a few expressions of interest for the site already – which he could not divulge – he is not sure whether any new owners will want to keep the business au naturel as it currently is. Continued…Read full original article…

Nude man caught working out at Planet Fitness thought it was ‘judgment-free zone,’ police say

A man who was caught naked in a Planet Fitness thought he’d get away with it because the gym considers itself a “judgment-free zone,” officials said.

The police captain added that Stagno was in a “yoga-type pose” when authorities arrived. Continued…Read full original article…

Fears new tourist attraction will expose children to nudists on Brighton beach

Families may get a bit of an eyeful when they try out Brighton’s latest tourist attraction.

A new 16-metre high rope walk and climbing tower has been approved at Peter Pan’s Adventure Golf on the seafront.

But police warned that children may be able to see nudists from the top.

Neville Wren, Designing Out Crime Officer at Sussex Police, said parents might be concerned about what their children might see.

He said: “This facility is most likely to provide activities for various age groups from school age children to adults. It is closer to the beach than Marine Drive or Dukes Mound, and from the raised platform positions it possibly provides closer views across the beach towards the Naturalist Beach nearby which in turn may cause unexpected concerns from the parents of young children.”

The section of naturist beach near the marina is signposted on the beach to warn passers by what they might see.

The rope walk was approved by planners at Brighton and Hove City Council. Continued…Read full original article…

Rare bird puts paid to second nude beach in Belgium
The chance that Belgium will approve a second naturist beach at the coast became less likely after a report by the Flemish Agency for Nature and Woodland, which said that the activities of naturists could be a risk to a rare bird.

At present the Belgian coast has one naturist beach where naked sunbathing is permitted, at Bredene. But the beach is very popular, which led the Belgian Naturism Federation to request permission to open a second beach where naked sunbathing is permitted. Their attention fell on a little-used beach near Westende. “At that spot there is no construction or seafront overlooking the beach,” said the organisation’s president Koen Meulemans in Het Nieuwsblad.

However the nature agency raised objections with Flemish environment minister Joke Schauvliege, based on the presence at that spot of the crested lark (Galerida cristata), a rare bird which broods on the ground, and might be disturbed by what the agency called “subsidiary activities” related to the nudist beach, including visitors having sex in the dunes as well as leaving rubbish behind.

Tea tree lakes nude bathing case thrown out of court

Non-mainstream lifestyle choices aren’t ‘axiomatically offensive’, Magistrate Dunlevy told Byron Bay local court on Friday, ruling that Sunrise resident Maxine Hawker had no case to answer for bathing naked at the tea tree lakes at Grays Lane in January.

The magistrate said that the police had failed to prove Ms Hawker’s actions were ‘calculated to wound feelings, or arouse anger, disgust, resentment or outrage’.

Ms Hawker, who represented herself at the hearing, told the court she had no idea she was breaking the law and had not seen a sign near the entrance to the lake, which had been recently installed, warning of penalties.

But within minutes of arriving and entering the water, she was issued a $500 fine for bathing naked, which she chose to fight, telling the court, ‘I’m not a criminal, I’m a law-abiding person.’ Continued…Read full original article…

A warning was issued by Northumbrian Water, as unauthorised swimming is not permitted in its reservoirs

Naked swimmers got a dressing down from Northumbrian Water after taking a skinny dip in one of its reservoirs.

Worried staff spotted the all male group at Waskerley Reservoir in County Durham getting dangerously close to pipes that draw water from the reservoir for release into the river.

It was the latest in a spate of recent incidents during the ongoing heat wave which has led Northumbrian Water to issue a warning.

The company does not allow unauthorised swimming or launching of water craft in its reservoirs, but Rangers at its Waterside Parks have had to ask more than a dozen people to get out of the water at its sites across the North East on Wednesday alone.

Risks ranging from cold water shock to hidden currents all pose a danger to people’s lives when swimming in open water. Continued…Read full original article…

Beavers born in Cornwall for first time in 400 years
The first baby beavers to be born in Cornwall in 400 years have been caught on camera.

Now juvenile beavers, known as kits, have been spotted playing in the water on a farm near Truro.

Their parents arrived at Ladock last year, as part of a project to reintroduce the creatures.

The five-acre fenced site at Woodland Valley appears to be the perfect spot for these litter creatures!

They were filmed after farmer Chris Jones spotted them at the start of the week and alerted project partner Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

The Cornwall Beaver Project team were all hoping for some good views during their regular Wednesday night beaver walk.

Then filmmaker Nina Constable managed to snap this footage for BBC Springwatch… Continued…Read full original article…
