Higgs Beach question

Let me start by saying I am so not a prude. But....is Higgs Beach clothing optional? I thought I had seen a nude man in the water and thought I was just imagining things. When I was laying out in the sun the woman in front of me removed her top and went out swimming. I didn't see any signs posted so I wasn't sure.

None of the public beaches in Key West are clothing-optional whch includes Higgs, but this doesn't mean that someone will not swim naked or sunbathe topless and chance beng seen by the police.

I didn't think it was allowed. And that's really close to a park too. Those poor people at Salute had to see that and eat lunch.

exactly what PJK said. lunachick, those "poor people" would have called police. Salute has had their share of interesting people coming by due to their location :)

Could someone explain to me why people start out with

"I am not a prude, but..."

I mean I'm sure YOU don't think you are a prude by your own definition of the word but I can almost assure you that whatever you are about to write will meet the definition of a prude by some others standard.

So really, why start out with that???

Not meaning to attack the original poster at all, just trying to understand when people need to justify their question with that phrase.

Sorry for mentioning that I wasn't a prude. Just stating that nudity doesn't bother me probably was enough.

And the show at Higgs inspired me to come back to Salute for lunch.
