... the Lodge I had been a little "out of the loop" on the bike project.
Ben approached us yesterday morning to ask if we could spare some time this afternoon to visit the school as the kids wanted to say goodbye to us. Initially it seemed like one more thing fitting into our busy schedule but he went on too say that the first group of children would be receiving their bikes, so of course we said yes.

As I am heading back to Australia in a few weeks I shall probably stick around here with maybe some short side trips and park the car up here until I return.
