I was just about to email you to say a big THANK YOU for the trip.
We had a great time. Bruce and his team looked after us very well. We even quite enjoyed the rain storm (it was ver dramatic!). Lany did a wonderful job setting up (and keeping private) the campsite for us on Friday night.
I will have a think about anything that could be improved and email separately, but overall it was excellent.
