Sunset and evening star

And one clear call for me!

And may there be no moaning of the bar

When I put out to sea.

Thank you to everyone at Yucalta Lodge for your love and kindness shown to my Mum. You embraced not only her life but mine as well. It means more to me than you will ever know. ~ Gwen
