Golf was followed by a wonderful tour of Lake Windermere hosted by Brian Felesky and John Langille with lakeside beverages followed by a delicious dinner hosted by the Langilles and their lakeside neighbours the Felesky’s including a special fireworks display for the #VivaPuntaMita moment of the evening. A truly memorable evening had by all.
