Martens Grove Lido

Naked in the Woods

I was 15 when all the kids in my neighbourhood snuck into Marten’s Grove to go skinny dipping. It was the first time I had ever seen so many girls my own age in the nude. I remember it still.

We were having a fantastic time when suddenly we were lit up by about 6 pairs of headlights.

Police!

We didn’t have time to get dressed and just grabbed our clothes and ran!

We must have made quite a sight — 20 naked teenagers running naked through the woods. I bet the police guys who chased us enjoyed telling the story too.

Tony, Peter, Claire, Sarah, Sian, Michelle, Kerry, Shaun!
Where are you now?

Epilogue:
I got a thorn in my foot from running through the woods and it got infected and I had to go to the hospital to have it removed. During the surgery, while I was lying there in my underwear the most beautiful nurse I had ever seen comforted me by softly rubbing my thigh.

It definitely took my mind off the procedure but I’m not sure that was exactly what protocol required.
