... hole. During the summer this is jampacked with people on a daily basis but today we had it to ourselves and so the dogs were able to run loose and have a swim. With the crystal blue sky overhead it would be hard to believe that it was a winter's day. It is definitely not like any winter's day that I have experienced at home.
