The first time I visited a nudist resort was in June 2014 two days after my 66th birthday. Since then I've visited two resorts about an hour from home a few times last year and this year, so I'm still pretty new to social nudism. On December 12, 2015 I went to a dinner and Christmas Party at one of the resorts. The weather was warm enough in north central Texas to be comfortable nude outside. After I undressed and unloaded some food and a gift, I used the hot tub and sauna and talked to some other men. I went for a walk/run on the nature trail before it got dark then played a couple of games of pool before dinner. Dinner was followed by a gift exchange where people could open a new gift or “steal” one from someone else. I think at least sixty people were there. It was my first Christmas party at a nudist resort. I thought everyone would be nude since it was a nudist resort. It surprised me that most people had on pants and shirts or pajamas or robes. The resort owners/managers and some others who lived there were fully clothed and never undressed. Just a few other men and maybe three women were nude. I think that is what the “outside” world should be like, clothing-optional with people wearing as little or as much as they want. I enjoyed the party and the socializing. After the party, I got dressed to drive home. A woman who was dressed the entire time said to me, “You look nice with clothes on.” I said, “Thank you.” I hope she meant it as a compliment.
