...just to correct that previous post btw - should really read 'The Old School Guest House with tea room' - looks like light snacks only - soup and scone - service area prob more substantial..?

Just reposting Dave's blog link here so I can find it more easily.

Just caught up with the videos on there too - good stuff.
That sunrise picture on Blakey is inspirational too - got me fired up to see if I can't get a similar pic on my next bash! My revamped schedule puts me at the Lion Inn by midnight on day2... if I can stick to it lol
cheers,
mick
