Photos of the Marine base fence/boundry 8.26.08.
If the Marines are serious about keeping people off their beach, they might want to consider a better fence and stepping up patrols.
As mentioned in the previous post, the Marine base beach is where people are getting naughty and thus, reflecting a bad image on the state park clothing-optional beach.
The majority of naughty conduct that happens at San Onofre State Beach at Trail 6 is happening on the Marine base, in the parking lot and perhaps on some back trails. As far as what I have seen with my own eyes, I have only witnessed people on the Marine base doing "stuff". And it's not just gay men. I've seen single men and male/female couples enjoying mother nature a little too much. Closing the traditional clothing-optional beach will not help those areas where the majority of naughty behavior occurs. To be fair, I have seen a couple of naughty incidents in the many years I have gone to the traditional clothing-optional beach at Trail 6 on the state park side. They were more "R" than "X " for sure. The "X" stuff rarely, if ever, happens on the state beach from what I have heard. At least during daylight hours. All beaches have naughty visitors at night, nude or not.
Sunday saw a large turnout at the clothing-optional beach at San Onofre Trail 6. Lots of new people checking out the beach. A large sense of freedom moved with the heavy winds. The New York times was there doing a story. The media attention has brought a curious bunch of first timers. Those we spoke with had a great time and said they would for certain come back soon.
JUST FOR FUN -Photo op.
An artist's bluff sculpture at trail 6 and the sculpture's view of the clothing-optional beach in front of him. Is he smiling upon the nudists, or the state parks? He looks a bit corporate, devient and calculated. But still, I think he is pro nude beach. With a view like that, why wouldn't he be?
Below is the synopsis of what happened today at Orange County Superior Court in regard to San Onofre Trail 6 remaining a clothing-optional beach. Also see the story from NC Times here
DATE: August 20, 2008
SUBJECT: Judge postpones ruling in NAC's San Onofre lawsuit
TO: Naturists and other concerned citizens
The Naturist Action Committee wishes to update you briefly concerning an intermediate step in the battle to preserve a portion of San Onofre State Beach for clothing-optional use.
As many of you are aware, today is the day a California Superior Court had designated for issuing a ruling in the lawsuit the Naturist Action Committee (NAC) has filed against the California Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR). Earlier this year, DPR had attempted to bypass state law regarding changes to public regulations, as it moved to end the traditional clothing-optional use of a small portion of San Onofre State Beach in San Diego County.
NAC sued, seeking to force DPR to follow state law.
A tentative ruling by the Court favored NAC, but following the presentation of oral arguments, Judge Sheila Fell said she would withhold a final ruling while she considers the issue further.
Joining NAC as petitioners are Friends of San Onofre Beach (the local TNS-affiliated naturist group), as well as individual beach users Allen Baylis and Gerda Hayes.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
The Naturist Action Committee expects a final ruling within a matter of a few days. This delay must not be taken as an indication that we won't ultimately win. It's a reflection of the seriousness with which the judge views this matter.
WHAT IS NAC ASKING YOU TO DO?
This is a NAC Update. NAC is not asking for your action at this time.

We have been to San Onofre Beach trail 6 at least a couple dozen times over the years. If you frequent the beach enough, you are bound to see some weird shit eventually. Especially past the Marine fence that is technically off limits and is supposed to be considered federal trespassing if ventured past it. Though, it's rarely enforced by the Marines, at least at the time of this post.
