Caught By The Neighbours
A group for exchanging views on 'what to do' when you just got caught by your neighbour nude in your own backyard.

I posted this to another group yet it seems more appropriate here.
This is from a while ago and will be in a few parts.
The other day I was walking down the north side of our house along the side yard toward the back when I heard my neighbor's side patio door open. The fence is 6' yet I could see that the top of the door was open and assumed he would be out back somewhere. There was something I wanted to ask him about. There is a step up near the back of our yard for about 6' until the gate to the alley is reached. At the step up the fence is around 5.5'on our side yet not on his as there is no change in grade. It is a good place to talk over the fence. As usual I was nude and had been gardening and did not want to go find my shorts and get dressed just to speak with him so I figured it would just look like I was shirtless speaking over the short part of the fence. I figured he was some where in the back and if I could get his attention I'd just ask my question and that would be it. As I reached the back yard and took the step up toward the short part of the fence I noticed the top of his head right next to me just on the other side. I started getting that sort of titillating feeling of exposure being so close as there are a couple of spaces in the fence panels where someone close could see through.
He was looking at something around his back fence and didn't notice me until I popped my head over to speak with him. We kind of startled each other as he didn't hear me approach and as I looked over the fence I noticed he was shirtless as well and clad only in a loose sarong that looked like it was about to fall off.
He has been working from home during the shut down and said he was just out to get his 15 minutes of sun. I'm sure now that he was working nude in the house and just threw the sarong on to go outside. I think he felt a bit awkward at me seeing him dressed like that and I was a bit flustered myself as I didn't quite know how to put him at ease and tell him I was nude anyway. I'm not very good at thinking on my feet. I wanted to say something yet could only say it was nice he could work from home and be so comfortable. He agreed and laid back in a chair pulling the sarong up so that just his crotch was covered and I went back to my gardening.
He has a younger girlfriend who I've seen getting out of her car rather scantily clad in some sort of sarong a couple of times and if I take some garden veggies over at times she answers the door in a robe. I guess we have nudist neighbors. The next time I run into him, I'm going to suggest we declare each others property clothing optional and just assume that if one of us is out back that we are nude and no reason to cover up outside for each other.
Anyone have a similar experience or have any ideas how to bring the subject up?

RE:Backyard and neighbor
This is continued from the first neighbor post about 3 or 4 weeks after the first encounter.
Until a few days ago I hadn't spoken with my neighbor (Tim) since our last conversation over the fence except for one quick chat where he was once again outside in a loose hanging sarong.
The step up place where we talked is also a great place to cool down in the breeze after a brisk evening walk or to dry off after an evening skinny dip. During our prior conversation I had noticed a couple of panels on top of the fence I put up years ago were getting some weather damage. I had removed them to measure them for replacements so the fence was a bit lower than before.
It has been so very warm and muggy this late summer and fall that I have been nude most all the time, dressing in shorts and shirt only to go out in the world. I usually would take a pair of shorts and shirt out back to have in case someone came over yet with social distancing there's just no need as no one comes by. Somewhere along the line I just stopped and became a no net back yard nudist. Our neighborhood is near the coast so generally no one has a/c and we rely on the sea breeze which works most of the time yet in late summer/fall we can get a period of hot and humid doldrums.
One recent evening while standing there enjoying the warm ocean breeze after a swim I happened to notice that with the panels down there was a small view into Tim's living room. Not much just a lit area between the living room and hallway. At that moment I saw a fleeting image of a person passing to the hallway toward the rear of the house. A moment later a light when on in the rear bedroom and there stood Tim in the bright light as nude as me. The light was only on a few seconds and then I saw him again pass from the hallway into the living room toward the couch. No big deal yet it confirmed what I suspected that he is at least a home nudist at times. l
Then on the weekend I was out back in the garden puttering around when I heard a noise and happened to look up. There was my neighbor up on his roof trying to cover a leak area with what appeared to be a large tarp. Apparently his roof is in need of some repair. I was nude and I didn't know if he had seen me so I quietly slipped out of view.
After a few minutes he left the roof and after waiting a while I felt safe enough to venture nude back out into the garden as there were things I needed to get done. I was working on the opposite side of the yard from Tim's and facing away form his place checking seedlings, watering, cleaning bird baths and doing some light pruning etc.. After finishing I headed toward Tim's side of the yard to check the little garden plot on that side of the yard.
As I started across the yard I noticed a lot more stuff on Tim's roof, buckets and other weighted objects to hold down the tarp than had been there earlier. I often lose myself in nature when nude gardening as with nude hiking the heightened senses and a merging harmony with nature one loses the sense of time. I realized that I had probably been working almost an hour in the garden and that Tim had made several trips up to his roof in order to get the dozen or more items that now lay on the roof up there. I surmised that he must have seen me given the number of trips up and down the ladder he had to have made. At the time I saw no one on the roof from my angle so I continued on.
About half way across the yard I caught sight of Tim walking from another part of his roof looking right at me and heading in my direction to a ladder propped up against his house. I was completely exposed caught nude and there was nothing I could do. There were no cover or clothes anywhere to put on. I kept my gaze down yet I knew he had seen me as we were maybe 20 ft from each other. As I reached the side yard area he was just climbing down the ladder with his back to me.
He began moving things around just on the other side of the fence. It was way too hot for clothes for me and I knew he had seen me and I didn't want to have to leave the yard every time he went on the roof so I called to him and met him at the back where we could talk over the fence. We made small talk about the shutdown and family separation for a few minutes. He was shirtless wearing some loose shorts and sandals and made no comment about seeing me nude..
I offered him some patio furniture we were getting rid of so he could enjoy the sun better. He gladly accepted and I began collecting the pieces of a lounger and cushion to pass over the fence. The fence was already a couple panels lower and I removed a couple more so that it was just below waist high to get the last big piece over. Being only a foot or so away from each other, If he hadn't already seen me nude, he did now. As I did so I said that I hoped he didn't mind my dress code and he smiled and said not at all as we wished each other a good day.
As I said, it was a very hot and humid and as we have no a/c, a long evening swim in the pool is the best way to cool off before bed. So that evening, after my swim I went to the side yard between our homes at the step up to catch any available warm sea breeze to help dry off. I'd yet to replace the fence panels I'd removed so the view in his yard was pretty substantial. Tim's windows were all open from the heat I suppose and the place was kind of lit up. I wasn't really paying much attention yet I caught sight of some movement and just caught sight of Tim and his girl friend crossing from the living room to the hall and then they returned a few seconds later. It was a quick glance yet I could see both were nude as they returned toward their couch.
It also explained some of the barely clothed outfits I'd seen his girlfriend wearing around outside or around the neighborhood.
RE:Backyard and neighbor
I've thought about inviting them over for a swim. Tim travels a lot for work and his gf is home there alone. I don't always see him or know when he is home and would feel awkward just asking his gf.
A few weeks ago I was working on my pool filter next to our mutual fence, cleaning the catrtridge and nude of course. I heard Tina talking with someone that sounded like some serviceman. I knew Tim was gone and it sounded like they were getting a bid on some work on the house.
A few minutes later as I finished my work and turned around, I heard my name called and looked up to see Tina half way up a ladder leaned up against their house. She said hi and we made small talk for a minute and I went back to the yard. A week or so after that Tim was home and I ran into them out front one evening We talked a bit and as we parted Tina said something that she says every time we part and I never caught the meaning yet this time as they were walking away she turned and with a wry smile and a wink said "Always nice to see you." I'm going to have to pay more attention to Tim's home schedule and invite them over this summer.
