The girlies stayed with their dad, and I stayed in a very comfortable guesthouse. And we were lucky with the weather too...

It's a lovely place and well worth the 3.5 hour cross-country drive to get there. It was a great weekend, lots to see, plenty of cake and good weather. What more could you ask for?
