My Town Monday: Nude Woman Rescued in San Diego, CA

In the midst of all the doom and gloom currently in the news, I bring you a more whimsical local story for today's My Town Monday post.

Last Tuesday, a naked 27-year-old woman was stranded on a cliff overlooking Black's Beach in San Diego. She'd left her clothes on the beach and was hiking up a steep cliff when she got stuck. The cliffs are about 500 feet high. Luckily, a good citizen noticed her and called 911. The lifeguard rescue team rigged up a rope system, and the woman was safely reunited with her clothes. She suffered scraped knees.

No one knows who made the 911 call. Possibly a hang glider who was floating by and got an eyeful of the disrobed damsel in distress.

I guess she was headed up to the parking lot? Although I'm not sure why she thought nudity in a family parking lot was a good plan.

Was the woman cited for nudity? No.
(Black's Beach, the beach below her, is considered by locals as "clothing optional." Lifeguards can do give out tickets for nudity here, but probably not all that often.)

Was the woman charged for the resuce? No.

Was the woman cited for anything? Yes. She was cited for not obeying the signs warning of unstable cliffs! Well, they are sheer.

And that's how we roll in San Diego.

Ya gotta wonder how many hits this post will get with words like "nudist" and "naked"!! Ha!

Glad she didn't get a Darwin award.

Oh wow. Her family must be so proud. :/

Do I sense the title for a new book: I So Don't Do Naked Cliff-Climbing??

Isn't California a wonderful place?

Barrie said...

Charles: Ha!!!

Stacy: Can you imagine turning on the news and seeing your daughter in that particular segment?!

Teresa: It's certainly a title that would catch people's eye;)

There are a lot of things that might be more fun naked. But hiking never seemed like one of them.

When I first saw the title, I was like umm ok. It turns out there ARE actually crazy people in the world.

dumb broad, whatever was she thinking...?

probably not! lol

LynNerd said...

I wonder what she was smokin'! She adds a new dimension to "getting high." Whatever the case, I could envision the whole thing and it made me laugh out loud. Definitely needs to be used in a story somewhere. Thanks for the chuckles.

Barrie said...

Patti: I love your sense of humor!!

LFM: There are! There are! :)

Laughingwolf: The funniest thing was when I was on your blog yesterday and you had a photo up of a practically naked guy working on a computer!

Barrie said...

LynNerd: Glad you got a kick out of the story! Your mystery looks like something my Child #4 would enjoy!

LynNerd said...

Barrie, that's great that your kids like mysteries, too. I guess part of you rubbed off on them! Our Monster Moon books are fast paced and fun, so your daughter might like it. Thanks for answering my question on DearEditor. I shared your comment at the schmooze presentation I had to give last weekend.

Barrie said...

LynNerd: You're very welcome for the DearEditor reply. And thank you for sharing that you shared it. I'm glad you found it worthwhile. Fastpaced would be good for Child #4. ;)
