There were several reasons for the No Dogs sign on the beach.
As it was an Over 60s Nudist Beach, many of the beach attendees had pets and knowing their pets as they did decided the beach was no place for them.
Also as many had sight issues and going into the water usually meant leaving their glasses behind their sight was often compromised and stepping into something untoward was not their idea of any fun at all.
There was also the situation many of them faced that with age all of one’s bits tended to be more attracted more to the sand than the sun. So with bits drooping and dangling like they once didn’t, the thought of dogs sniffing round them was very off-putting.
So it was the Over 60’s Nudist Beach operated very happily and successfully, providing and warm and sunny outlet to all those so inclined. It was often surprising how many turned up on any given day. The Over 60’s were more your weekday adventurers finding the weekends attracted far too many undesirable folk like young people, young families and children.
There was one other advantage to attending the beach, it saved a lot of folks the indignity of visiting the swimwear shop to buy new swimmers, and as the years moved on, they found it a relief that their current costume would still be in vogue the next year.
