Well another BN event attended this year, and this time it was going along to Splash Landings Hotel at the Alton Towers Resort in Staffordshire for their Annual Naturist weekend.
We set off from Hampshire at about 11:00 with Claire, myself , Chris and Richard representing the Haslemere Sun Club.
The journey was fine it’s just the time it takes to get there, about 4 hours. We arrived just after 4, having stopped on the way for refreshments and then at a local Tesco for booze in the room.
Once we were checked into our room, we were able to be naked until the time we left late Sunday morning.
The evening entertainment was great on the Friday Night, with a three piece band called Trident singing all manner of songs to suite everybody. The lead singer looked remarkably like Shakira a Scottish lady I dated before I met Claire, thankfully it wasn’t.
This was followed by a couple of girls playing Sax and bongos to Ibiza tunes, called Girls that Mix. Chris was very much in his element when they came on and thoroughly loved it. In fact they were very good and the drums were very infectious.
The next day was an opportunity to experience the water park as nature intended……naked!!
The log flumes were my favourite just had to make sure you raised your bum up so it wasn’t scrapping the floor. Lazy river was another fun area, ensuring that Chris and Rich got a good soaking from the waterfalls.
The most energetic part was getting involved in the water polo. It was more like water rugby, a lot of pushing and shoving and getting knocked about in the water. I got bashed in the face by a girl and ended up with an aching arm and leg. Great fun though and Rich and I made a formidable alliance with my height and his accuracy at throwing the ball. Must say that was the first time I’ve sweated in the water!!! You got to know people quite close up too ?.
Evening time we had another very good band. Rang-a-Tang were a group with a jungle theme. One of the guitarists got in on the act wearing just a mankini, good on him. Again they were very good getting everyone up and dancing. The theme was Jungle night and there were some very good costumes, or should I say body paintings. We tried our best as tarzans but were not as good as a lot of others.
Both nights we were up until at least 1:00am and come Sunday morning I just wanted to get home to my bed…….although there was another 4 hour drive before that would happen.
The weekend was good, the food was alright (except for the sausages at breakfast) and the entertainment was fab. Would I go again, not sure it’s a long way to go just to be naked for 48 hours. Claire didn’t enjoy it, but she doesn’t like crowds and loud noise so that’s why.
Had a fab time with 500 other like minded individuals.
