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