Finding bliss in an outdoor shower

Naked in the river skinny dippin’ my way
In the waterfall I just wanna play


~Red Hot Chili Peppers, Naked in The Rain


All wet outdoor shower


If you ask my daughter what she enjoyed most about our trip to Kauai, she will tell you: The outdoor shower! And I have to admit, it was one of the highlights of our vacation for me too. Every day, the two of us would strip down—nudie-tootie as we like to call it—grab our towels, and head outside.


Our little ritual was pure bliss. There is something absolutely freeing about being in a place warm enough and private enough to let it all hang out. We’d laugh and dance around. Afterwards we’d take our towels and strut proudly back to our vacation cottage, both feeling like we just got away with something. I loved seeing how utterly happy and carefree my Baby Bird was as she experienced this simple pleasure.
