Ray Mill Island – 4 March 2017

With Rebekah out at a friend’s house, we enjoyed something of the early spring weather and spent an hour or so on Ray Mill Island.

We stopped for the ubiquitous hot drink at the café on the island, sheltering from a heavy shower beneath one of their new umbrellas, while Emily enjoyed her second al fresco ice cream of the year.

Fortunately the rain stopped for long enough for a quick circuit around the island.
