The lodge - when we arrived there all 3 the ladies vowed to bath in those lovely huge baths - we each only did once - the outside showers (concealed but with a view) was just way too tempting.

We swam a lot! It was hot and the combination of a cold and hot pool led to many happy hours in the water.
There was sand art done, faces painted, manicures and pedicures undertaken and spray on tattoos painted.
Apart from the big fortieth celebration, the one thing that stood out was the huge amount of bicycling that happened The gravel roads lend themselves to great cycling and the area around the house provides lots of safe spots for the little ones to ride too. I had a great ride on Thursday while Hunter had several over the weekend.
The big event however was that these two girls (8 and 9 years old) did an 11 km ride with their dads on the gravel roads and paths. It is the very first time that our Princess did a ride more than around a few blocks and on a big bike! We were super proud of her. The two just grabbed their bikes regularly and off they went within the area we set out for them.
