Understanding that my wife would not have the ability to resist paddling in the sea when we reached the beach I‘d packaged towels in a rucksack along with our lunch.
As we approached Hastings in our car the sun came out as though to make a mockery of the weather forecast of a warm but cloudy day. We hadn’t walked far before it was really rather hot. There are coves at the bottom of the cliffs but we usually avoided the steep climb necessary to reach them (they’re now even less easily accessible as coastal erosion has made the cliffs dangerous). Yet my wife could see the sea and needed to reach it! We followed a path which appeared to be leading in the right direction and this brought us to the very top of a wooden stairway. Nonetheless there was a sign which warned that beyond this point one might encounter naturists … My wife said it was a shame to turn back now.
Being a hot day there was quite a number of people already in the cove. One end was clearly a suntrap and was crowded – chiefly with naturists as far as we could tell from a distance. We made our way to a less busy part and put down our towels to make the pebbles more comfortable to sit on while we ate our lunch. I took off my tee shirt and my wife studied the beach. She said it was a shame we had come unprepared but did I think her knickers would look like a bikini. I said that her knickers would probably pass but I was not convinced about her bra. She agreed and promptly took off her skirt. After pausing she subsequently took off her bra. On holiday in France she’d frequently gone topless so this wasn’t particularly surprising. I don’t usually wear anything under shorts so I asked her if she minded if took off my shorts since it was so hot, She said that was OK so we sat and ate our lunch with me naked and her wearing just her knickers.
After lunch my wife began to get uneasy. The sea was calling … It was noticeable that at our end of the beach a lot of girls who sunbathed topless put on their tops to walk down to the sea to swim; equally women and men who were sunbathing naked replaced their costumes before walking to the ocean. My wife then took off her knickers and asked if I wanted to join her for a swim. She said she’d have to keep her knickers dry as she couldn’t climb back up in a skirt without wearing knickers. Walking down that beach hand in hand with my lovely nude wife is one of my proudest memories. After swimming we sunbathed some more and then after another swim it was time to continue our walk. That was our first visit to a clothing optional beach.
We had previously visited a spa with a sauna where costumes were not worn on a couple of occasions so this was not an instance of the very first time naked in public but it was the first-time outdoors. Since then we have visited French clothing optional beaches but my wife prefers to wear a bikini (or at least the bottom) while I typically go nude. On one occasion we’d gone out on a dreary day and been surprised when it turned hot and again my wife had stripped happily as it was the only means she would have the ability to swim. I don’t understand why she prefers to wear a costume but I treasure the memory of that day in Fairlight Cove.

Was very mixed with clothed and non clothed but it was a great afternoon.
