Cath & Rob.
Today, (22nd January) having a farewell braii with Rob, Cath & Sean, at the picnic spot by the river. They leave early in the morning for their long journey back to Rio de Janiero & back to their normal lives. It has been great having them around & catching up on events. Bon voyage the Franklins!
