A wonderful weekend was had in good company with our cousins from Scotland, including a lovely boat trip and more than one sip of cider in the sunshine.
Back to reality now with a full schedule of work to include further tweaking of our website (always a work in progress), the re-printing of our ‘Green Guide to include the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ and the promotion of our ‘Summer Cabaret’ and ‘Home made Holidays at Harvey’s.
