More San Diego academia, but with the odd summer twist: Lloyd Johnson, astronomer-nudist of Black's Beach. Yes, this guy linked his private page on nudist beaches in San Diego county to his instructor's page at one of the community colleges he worked at in the 1990s. America was made of sterner stuff then.

Postscript: It turns out that while the content is more-or-less the same, it's not the same URL....in other words, he took his content and put it in this location. He's also playing other games - there are two versions of the same site with a different first page.

... and of course the subject of a long Wikipedia article liberally supplied with photographs. The beach, that is, not the astronomer-nudist.

This is the same website that turned roads into a gigantic mess of a project, so them doing an article on a small nudist beach with ten photos is "normal."

Johnson today is doing diving instruction and being a hired "scuba buddy" in Maui, Hawai'i. Every astronomer college professor I've met has either been counting down the days until retirement or looking for a job outside of the field, or has a side-business they are trying to develop. There are very few slots doing research, and it's kind of miraculous they got teaching jobs in the first place, because those are rare as well. Lloyd turned his hobby/lifestyle into a job.
