Of course I had to take advantage of the fun view from our new friends’ hotel window at EroticonUSA. During this one M said, see she knows how to pose!
But that was just a warm up. I had to try for a Scavenger Hunt photo (and strip!) of course.
But I had trouble holding my pose when Jake suddenly bit me! I still have two bite shaped bruises on my ass, lol.
Thanks so much to the amazing M from Cammies on the Floor for taking these and for being my partner in crime Saturday night! I do have some more photos from Eroticon as well as things to say, so stay tuned for another Eroticon post.
Also, if you haven’t seen my “bloody” Boobday photo for this week, please have a look!
Last weekend, my friends and I went tubing and rented a house on the river. I couldn’t resist jumping into the water from the deck outside, and flashing my boobs in the process, of course. This is actually a still from a camera phone video which I was having trouble editing/decided not to post…maybe another time. 🙂
It’s also a new Scavenger Hunt location for me, woo! (river)
While these aren’t my best photos, since Jake took them on my camera phone in the blaring sun and couldn’t even see the screen, I’m still sharing them because they prove my first experience going topless at Barton Springs Pool! This wasn’t the first time I’ve hung out topless in Austin, but it was the first time I was surrounded by people!
When we got there and set our towels down at the top of the hill, I noticed a girl around us lying topless, so I figured I would go for it as well. I’ve wanted to do it for awhile but have been a little too nervous (I can be shy in person at times, believe it or not.) Whenever the lifeguards or new people arriving walked by I felt a little weird, like maybe I should cover up, but I resisted the urge. It was freeing, lying out without my bikini top tight around my neck and back, and also, no annoying tan lines!
After we’d been lying out for awhile and our skin was stinging to the point that it was time to jump into the heavenly 70 degrees water, I had to decide if I would put my top back on for the trek down the hill and into the pool or not. Why bother at this point? I thought. And I did it! It may seem like no big deal to those reading this, but it definitely feels more daring to walk down a hill crowded with people and jump into the pool in front of everyone, as opposed to merely resting topless in the less crowded area at the top of the hill.
So I wasn’t the only topless woman there. And I wasn’t even showing as much skin as a guy near us, who only wore a sock around his penis (props, dude!) But still, I’m proud of myself for going topless somewhere crowded in public for the first time. And I’m thankful I live in an awesome place like Austin that has a pool where it is completely acceptable to wear only a bikini bottom or a sock. Next stop, Hippie Hollow, y’all! 🙂
I’m not sure if this counts as a Scavenger Hunt photo or not, since you’re allowed to be topless at Barton (as you technically are in all of Austin,) but since 90+% of people don’t do it/it’s not a naturist place, I thought I should ask. 🙂
Yesterday was one of my favorite Austin traditions, Eeyore’s Birthday, a festival filled with people in costumes, drum circles, food benefiting local non-profits, music, and most importantly, peaceful vibes.
Eeyore’s started in 1963 as a spring party and picnic for the UT English Department students (if only I had attended 40 years earlier!) and has evolved and changed but is still a favorite annual Austinite celebration. It has an awesome hippie feel, and people of all ages come together to play and party and celebrate our weird city.
I’ve attended for quite a few years now, and this one was just as fun as the rest. Jake and I wandered around, watched people play football on unicycles, admired the crazy costumes, hoop dancers, and musicians, met up with friends, and danced in the last drum circle as the sun set. And of course I couldn’t pass up an opportunity for a Scavenger Hunt photo! I also posted a fully clothed(ish) photo on Instagram 🙂
Happy 50th Birthday Eeyore!
As Molly suggested, I’ve added a new vintage edit. Click the image to see the original, and let me know which one you like better!
The original image was featured as a top photo in the Sinful Sunday weekly Round-up; thanks Jilly & Molly!
Today Jake and I went out hiking to take photos for one of my classes, and since the park was pretty deserted, I decided to try my 1st attempt at a public nudity/scavenger hunt image. So, what do you think? 🙂
