    Honeymoon ? You kept that very quiet ! A real pleasure having you here, it is inspiring to us to see people enjoying their time together.

    Yes the weather can interfere with the best and well laid plans. Always good to see people make the most of things despite that particular disappointment. Hope to see you back for another try.
