Over twenty BOP Naturists spent a wonderful weekend at Pyes Pa. Most stayed overnight in their campervans, with a few popping in for the day.
The weather was great, the silly games a lot of fun and the happy hour, followed by a BBQ left everyone well fed and watered. After dinner, a quiz was held as we all sat around the fire. On Sunday, Ray's treasure hunt had us all thinking outside the square.
It was a very relaxing weekend and everyone who was there wants to know when the next one will be. Watch this space!
The day after our campout, 38 of the group attended another successful night at Oropi hot pools.
Col and I want to wish all BOP Naturists a very happy Christmas and healthy New Year. See you in 2011.
