Admittedly it was Renee’s birthday the day before we got there and mine was on Sunday, when all except Renee and I left for home, but that didn’t matter one bit. The whole family pitched in to make it a really super weekend for the two of us, providing a non-stop array of wonderful food and entertainment. The Tides Lodge was a great venue and we could not have asked for anything better. It has a really good piece of river frontage and provided safe swimming for everybody – and the kids certainly loved it. No doubt they all slept like logs on the way home. On Sunday afternoon after everyone had left, we went for a drive along the river, but did not see anything to compare with what we had, in terms of space, lawn and river.
Thank you all for a great time. It is so good to have a family that enjoys each others’ company and makes the effort to get together at special times.
