un bagnetto insieme

Hi all,

An italian friend is coming for a weekend to a place near where I live soon, and wrote this in her letter:

"..non è male no se ci facciamo un bagnetto insieme o una serata!"

This has me stumped - surely it's a saying and doesn't mean what it literally says?! (We've always been purely friends and nothing more...)

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks in advance,

    Hi - thanks for your reply...
    Yeah I do!
    Is it to do with swimming then do you think?
    I almost got the wrong idea :)

    Did you use to swim together? Or one of you two has a swimming pool?
    If the answers are both no I'm afraid there is something strange.

    But then she/he adds "o una serata", "or an evening out", as an alternative to bathing ...
    Is this reassuring? :)
