Whispering Pines may be the best kept secret in the Cape Fear region. It is off the beaten path, halfway between Ocean Isle Beach and Longwood. The folks there are excited about their attempt to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest number of people simultaneously skinny dipping.
“The American Association for Nude Recreation has sanctioned this event for the 260+ clubs across the United States. It’s going to be July 11th at 3:00 p.m. Our gates will open at noon at Whispering Pines to register each participant,” said nudist Gloria Waryas.
Skinny-dipping is a wholesome tradition. It is as old as mankind and it is a common occurrence at Whispering Pines.
“It’s a lot of fun being a skinny dipper. It’s just freedom. Free of everything. You don’t have confinement of a bathing suit. Everyone is equal. You don’t have to worry about whose bathing suit looks better than yours,” said Carole Stogner Lawless.
Whispering Pines is a secluded resort. The swimming pool can only hold so many people – perhaps 150 or so. But there is a nearby pond, and those who skinny dip in it will be included in the record breaking attempt. Also, on that day, the public is welcome.
So consider yourself invited, but there are a few rules. If you choose to participate on July 11th, you can arrive fully clothed, but be prepared to bare all. After all, it is a nudist resort and you will get to be part of the Guinness Book of World Records.
The world record attempt on July 11th will mark the conclusion of Nude Recreation Week.
