Following an afternoon in the cold, we warmed up in the reception space at the Highlands Golf Course!
Since it's summer time we went over to Reeds Lake back in June for a little stroll around the lake. Naturally, it was one of the hottest days of the summer. Even at 7pm it was conspiring against us so we got a good sweat, but I think it was worth it!
