Thank you to Oli for all your website help and to both mine and Will's family for all your support and encouragement.

This website is dedicated to and in memory of both my Mum Lyn and to Will's Mum Mal.  My Mum for her love of life and free spirit and to Mal for her fun loving character, both loved to experience the adventure and beauty of nature.
