All the beds have doonas, and most houses have extra blankets. I haven't heard back from any guests who have died from hypothermia...

Haven't got my file in front of me, but there are about 5 (or could be 6) all grouped relatively together. Off hand lets see if I can remember, Bells Beach House, Cols Place, Ocean Outlook, The Points, Beatty's (not on the website), and Juniper House. The lady from Knee Deep has just got back to me and will have a talk to the chef about having platters on the table which is probably a better way to go, and will call me tomorrow.

I have complete faith in this being the most amazing weekend, even if we do get a little chilly round the ankles ;D

You're doing an amazing job CP, we love you :'(

It won't be cold, we're having the cold spell now. It will be nearly spring.

I am counting on that. It is  28 c in my back yard . I had to ditch my short sleeved shirt for a tank top.

I have to sat that I am looking forward to meeting everyone but I am getting nervous about the weekend.  DW has asked if any other men are going and gives me funny looks when I say just one other.

It is follows on the end of a week in Perth for me so I will leave home on Monday arvo for Perth and be in the city all week until I drive down to Gracetown on Friday.

I feel bad about being away from home for so long.

You should have planned to bring DW with you. I'm not sure how I'd feel if my DH was going off with heaps of women for a weekend. :)

I would have happily brought DW with me but She wouldn't come.  :( I have been away before camping with a bunch of Uni students when I was younger. She is not the jealous type plus she knows that I am very trustworthy.
