    Default First AN at CN in May

    We will be at CN from May 12-19 this year. We went about the same time last year and only went to the AN a night to go in the hot tub. This year we are going to try the AN in the light. Any suggestions or any other AN first timers going to be there at the same time??

    Ron & Treena,

    We won't be there when you are but were there last year and did AN for the first time. We found that going early in the trip (first day), early in the day (fewer people) and finding a place near the bushes (away from the beach) made it easier to try AN. A favorite alcoholic beverage helped to take the edge off as well. After a couple days we were using a floatie as a cover-up and heading out to the ocean for a dip and weren't worried anymore. Relax and realize that nobody there is going to judge you so just enjoy and get an all-over tan.

    Enjoy your vacation!

    Going early in the day is a great suggestion. However, the side nearest the bushes can get very hot, and that was in November! For some reason the breeze doesn't flow as well over there. You may want to try a spot closer to the bar or even in the shade of the seagrape trees on the left. That's where we spent all of our time last year, and it was great.

    Ahhh..the shade of the seagrapes...calling to me! It is so liberating and wonderful! Can't describe it. Will have that magical feeling again in September!

    Ron and Treena, have a beautiful and blessed trip. We are also from Indiana. While we will not be there with you during your time, I know what it's like to be from a conservative area. Know that you can have a beautiful time just the two of you, without judgment, in paradise. Forget Indiana! Enjoy!

    Colts, we will be there the exact same dates! Did you happen to see our response to your question about golf? My husband and I are both a little nervous about the AN side (me a lot more than him), but I'm willing to give it a try.

    Hopefully we can meet while there. We are looking for some great new friends!

    We just returned and were also first timers. Spent everyday at the A/N beach minus about 2 hours where we tried the other side. Once you spend time on the AN beach you wont like the other side anymore--too much noice, talking etc. The A/N is so quiet and peaceful. We actually made good friends and had dinner almost every night with several couples we happen to meet on the A/N side. It wont take you long to figure out that you get to just be you and no body cares who you are or what you look like. So go and enjoy each other, the wonderful sun and warm water and just be YOU. Have a No problem mon vacation...

    Toi,

    Yeah I got your response before and are looking forward to meeting everyone when we are there. Golfing is definitely on the schedule as my wife will be at the spa some days when we are not on the beach (A/N side virgin's here). We hope to be at resort around 1:30-2:00pm.

    Colts, I think we will be at the airport at the same time! Is your flight a non-stop or do you go through Dallas by any chance? I don't know if you saw it, but there was someone else asking about a golf game also. It may have been on the 'Meet Up' board.

    T/R, Yeah I saw the golf updates and I think our flight lands at 11:30 and we fly out of Washington DC (Dulles-IAD).

    So how did everyone do with their first A/N. First full day there, we went over early in the morning, already a few couples there. As we were walking in I told my wife, act like you've been here before. Got set up while trying not to look like a gauker. No one paid us any attention it seemed. We sat down, started reading. Everyone was keeping to themselves, different from what I expected, I knew everyone was going to be friendly but from reading this board I expected people to be more outgoing. After an hour the small talk started, but most kept their noses in their books, I guess that 50 Shades of Grey kept their attention.

    We spent one day on the regular beach, it was very different. The A.N beach is secluded, and quiet, more peaceful except for the tree crashing down, and the construction at Beaches one day.

    It was a great experience and we will go back, to CN and A/N.


    We met Ron and Treena there, and would never have thought Treena would have been nervous. Can you send me the pictures from the sunset cruise, my email is in my profile. Thanks, good to meet you, and fun to hang with you a bit while we were there.

    If everyone was reading 50 Shades, it's a wonder they weren't all up in their rooms!!! Those of you who have read it know what I'm talking about! 113 days until my naked butt in lounging under the sea grape trees!! Feeling much more relaxed just typing those words! That being said, I think it's dark enough here to go AN in my backyard hottub!! See ya!!!
