Wow - what a wonderful time 30 of us had at the Oropi Spa complex on our first visit there. Considering the weather in the rest of the country, we were very lucky to only have the odd shower with occasional very strong winds. But this was no real problem as everyone had such a good time socialising in the sheltered pools. Most then sauntered into the cafe in various stages of dress (or undress) for a meal, which was prepared by the owner, all on her own! The meals were very reasonably priced and very yummy (well mine was and I didn't hear any complaints). Then back in the pool to let the dinner go down. We went home dressed just in our robes and climbed straight into bed still warm and toasty after the soak. Everyone present agreed that this venue is really worth supporting and we all look forward to the next one on October 18th, which will be in daylight saving time, a month later and hopefully good enough weather to have a BBQ if we want to.

Once again, there was a good turnout of Bay of Plenty Naturists at the latest get-together at the CCS pool and dinner afterwards, with naturists from as far away as Wellington and Hawke’s Bay joining us this time. The pool was warm and even when the rain came, spirits weren’t dampened. One thing that amazed me at this gathering was the number of people who met up with friends they hadn’t seen for years and the level of conversation that was going on had me rethinking my comment to CCS that we are a quiet group! It was a really good night, with many not wanting to get out of the warm pool to get dressed for dinner (maybe the cold water falling from the sky had something to do with it)!
