cz499stmnudecplt.jpg (7257 bytes)
One end of the bay is a nudist resort, thus many naked people walked by.  *

Yes, even in paradise they know the value of the internet.

*You might find it interesting to learn of the photography "rules" concerning the nudists... our tour guide was careful to explain them to us.  No cameras or photography in the nudist resort... if you get one out, they will take it.  On the rest of the beach, it's considered "un-cool" or rude to take pics of nude people sunning, sitting or otherwise relaxing.  It was specifically authorized to shoot shots of nudists as they walked up and down the beach... "fair game" were the exact words used.  Since it was a French resort, many people enjoyed being either nude or topless.

These pictures are from a Florida business trip.
