Back for our fifth visit after a ‘rocky’ year – how great it has been to have a change of scene in this beautiful place. Sue & Jonah (Barney & Ted) are always SO welcoming and it matters not what the weather is doing with the land here (And now the cabin!) Shortish walks this time in favourite places until Alan’s hip is done. Thank you so much, take care of yourselves.Angie, Alan & Tan - September/October 2020
