This part of the website is currently being developed. As it grows we will add new subjects and items and eventually create a format for the information. We plan to have separate page  for each subject but for now they come under the headings of  the good food guide, things to do and wellness. Until we develop a format these are just my future notes, the raw nuts and bolts of behind the scenes website building. New subjects/items are being added and edited all the time.

These items are things/places we or our guests personally recommend. Hope you have fun exploring them too.
