Californians Clean Up Beach In The Nude
I always thought people in Santa Cruz were different...but I don't want to see jsut how different they are!
What made the effort at Bonny Doon Beach different from cleanups elsewhere on the California coast were the volunteers: Many were nude. Members of the Bay Area Naturists club were among those who collected 600 pounds of garbage at one of Northern California's most popular clothing-optional beaches, seven miles north of Santa Cruz. "The real purpose is not the nakedness, but clearing up the trash," said Jurek Zarzycki, 54, as he scanned for refuse in the buff. "Every piece of garbage we find out here is testimony to somebody being a sloppy jerk."
