Laugh of the Week

Cove News  

Events this week:

Experimental aircraft landed in Lake Brown 

At about 12:30 pm on Thursday, an experimental aircraft landed in Cypress Cove's Lake Brown. After some help from a couple in a peddle boat, the office was alerted that the pilot, originally from Indiana, needed some assistance. After being towed ashore by Dean & Barbara Hadley, Armando, and Brian, we learned that the pilot made an emergency landing after getting turned around in the air. The popup storms caused the pilot to keep navigating around them and ultimately she lost her way. Cypress Cove made contact with her and welcomed her with open arms. After drying off and staying the night with us, she had her instructor fly the plane back to their original destination of Lake Wales Florida. The AirCam is a twin-engine open cockpit experimental amateur-built aircraft designed and engineered with safety, visibility, and versatility in mind. It was quite a bit of excitement for mid-week here at Cypress Cove. Cathy, the AirCam pilot, wants to extend a heartfelt thank you to those who assisted her and all of the Cypress Cove team. 

Filming at Cypress Cove - June 15

We are welcoming a professional production team to Cypress Cove on Tuesday, June 15. They will be here shooting an upcoming commercial for Cypress Cove. We will be escorting this production team around and will be blocking areas off for filming. Currently, we expect to be filing the beach, on-the-lake activities, and a beach party scene beginning at 7 am lasting until about 11 am. Then, the production team will move to Cheeks and the West pool and will film from 11 am - 2 pm (times are approximate). If you do not wish to be filmed, please be aware of the areas of filming and position yourself behind the production crews. Thank you for always making our guests feel welcome at Cypress Cove. 

Speaking of... Want to be in a commercial? 

We are seeking anyone from ages 18 to 35 to serve as background "dance scene" extras. We will also accept ages 35 - 45 if interested in participating (we already have a group of people over the age of 50 lined up). These extras are in addition to our actors coming in for this shoot. This commercial would be shot in both implied nude and nude, so please make sure you are OK with being filmed nude. If you are interested, please reach out to the Cypress Cove Director of Marketing, Dan Whicker at

2021 Hurricane Season is Here

If you've lived in Florida for any length of time, it's no surprise that hurricane season is always around the corner. We've compiled some useful things to take some of the guesswork out of preparing.

What is in a Hurricane Prep Kit? 

  • Non-perishable food (enough to last at least 3 days)
  • Water (enough to last at least 3 days)
  • First-aid kit (include any prescription medication you may need)
  • Personal hygiene items and sanitation items
  • Flashlights (have extra batteries on hand)
  • Battery operated radio (again, have extra batteries)
  • Waterproof container with cash and important documents
  • Manual can opener
  • Lighter or matches
  • Books, magazines, games for recreation
  • Special needs items: pet supplies and baby supplies if applicable
  • Cooler and ice packs
  • A plan for evacuation and for if family members are separated

Facts About Hurricanes:

  1. In the Atlantic, hurricane season starts June 1, while in the Pacific it starts May 15. Both end on November 30.
  2. When they come onto land, the heavy rain, strong winds, and heavy waves can damage buildings, trees, and cars. The heavy waves are called a storm surge.
  3. 40% of the hurricanes that occur in the United States hit Florida.
  4. The difference between a tropical storm and a hurricane is wind speed – tropical storms usually bring winds of 36 to 47 mph, whereas hurricane wind speeds are at least 74 mph.
  5. Hurricanes rotate in a counter-clockwise direction around the eye. The rotating storm clouds create the "eyewall," which is the most destructive part of the storm.
  6. Hurricanes are classified into 5 categories, based on their wind speeds and potential to cause damage. Names can be "retired" if a hurricane has been really big and destructive. Retired names include Katrina, Andrew, Mitch, and most recently Sandy.
  7. When the National Hurricane Center began giving official names to storms in 1953, they were all female. This practice of using only women’s names ended in 1978.
  8. The costliest hurricane to make landfall was Hurricane Katrina, a Category 5 storm that slammed Louisiana in August of 2005. Damages cost an estimated $108 billion.

2021 Hurricane Names:

The National Hurricane Center’s official list of Atlantic tropical cyclone names for 2021 is out, did your name make the cut this year? When the Atlantic hurricane season starts June 1, the sequence of names for 2021 will be: Ana, Bill, Claudette, Danny, Elsa, Fred, Grace, Henri, Ida, Julian, Kate, Larry, Mindy, Nicholas, Odette, Peter, Rose, Sam, Teresa, Victor, and Wanda.

We need books

We are running low on books in the Clubhouse lending library. The lending library was instituted by residents several years ago. If you take a book, please return it when finished or leave another one. If you are looking to get rid of your book stash, feel free to place them on the shelves in the clubhouse. This applies to our traveling guests as well; you are welcome to borrow a book during your stay.

News Outside the Cove

See what is making headlines in nudist news around the world. These things and more are being shared on our social media channels. Follow us today to stay informed!



Nudist commercials, properly done, can actually boost business!

"There once was a small restaurant chain who wanted to make a commercial to advertise their new meal delivery service. This sounds very silly now, but this was a time long before Bite Squad, Doordash and Grubhub, and if you wanted anything delivered to you other than Asian food or pizza, you were largely out of luck. Based in the Midwest, their ad strategy up to this point had been fairly conservative. But then they were pitched an idea about nudists still wanting the restaurant’s food, and needing a delivery service to make it possible. Surprisingly, the small restaurant chain bit."

Nudist Comedy DISROBED Back for Online Encore

If you missed this at the film festival, keep a lookout online for when it comes around again.

"After two successful virtual runs, the irreverent nudist comedy DISROBED - THE VIRTUAL EVENT will return for a third virtual run available on-demand from May 20th to May 23rd through the Big Sky Fringe festival. A love story that speaks to our times, audience members will have a chance to tune into a filmed performance of a hilarious quarantine love story with a very scant costume budget." Read the full story HERE.

Around the Cove

Bad weather forced this Sea Plane to land on Brown Lake. The pilot said she didn't know it was a Nudist Resort. She stayed overnight and said she enjoyed herself so much that she & her husband would be coming back for a weekend stay.


Three Century Cactus have driven their spike into the air on Eagle Point at the same time. Despite their name, most century plants do this after 30 years of growth and often die after flowering.


The amazing pool party was the place to be on Friday night.


The black asphalt is very hot during the summer, so this smart puppy put on her pretty blue boots before going on her walk.


DJ "D" keeps the Saturday & Sunday afternoon Pool Parties rocking.


The Saturday Night Pool Party was Tyler Robinson's first visit to Cypress Cove. He had us dancing in the water and on the pool deck and even had some of us up on stage singing with him. A really great time was had by all.
