Exhausted from cold water surfing. Remove the wetsuit and rinse off in the shower. Have some food while the bath warms up. Boil the kettle for tea.
A unique place with particular qualities and a good book.
The bath is not about getting clean. It is a sensory experience, like a fireplace.
The body relaxes as the core temperature rises. After the bath, more food. This time with good beer. Perhaps the ultimate process.
