To properly describe the awesomeness that is Bathing under the Sky I will need to set the scene that was Secret Garden Party. Setting up Friday night was wet at best, but on we went and made our way out that night to check out what was on offer. With plenty of rain that night the site was a wash with mud so the bathing was more needed than ever.
For the brave that made the night the morning brought fresh promise in the form of the sun. The fun was out, but dare I admit that wet wipes were the only mode of cleaning practical for such an occasion.
Sunday the rain set in again, but this did not put us off and we braved the lost woods for a midday boogie. Fortunately, for us we slipped away to enjoy the sanctuary of Bathing under the Sky.
Two delightful hours start with a friendly welcome, then came clean towels and drink bands as you get a complimentary glass of Prosseco on visiting. A quick rinse in the shower so all are clean when getting in to be submerged in 38 degree’s of heaven. It is actually inconceivable how good this can be in chilly weather. Just sit back soaking for 2 hours sipping some bubbles and relaxing with someone special or partying with a group. You can invigorate the heart by plunging into the cool pool something that must have been more pleasant on a warmer day, none the less not to be missed.
This ancient art of bathing is back in a big way and can be found at festivals throughout the summer such as Secret Garden Party, Camp Bestival, Wilderness and still to come Bestival. So keep an eye out where ever you are and book as soon as you can as it gets booked up quickly.
For those of you that love the smell of wood chip heating the water in Western red cedar (Thuja Plicata) tubs, you can now have it in your own garden. Much smarter looking than the old Jacuzzi and o so relaxing! They can be bought brand new or second hand from Bathing Under the Sky.
Now even though the summer festivals are drawing to a close you always have next year so keep an eye out! Or why not buy one for the garden.
