Apologies for the lack of updates recently. Our network continues to be problem making updating the website and showing our webcams difficult due to our internet connection being extremely slow at times. It is very intermittent, so sometimes we can update as I am am doing now. Please be patient as we try to get updates out when we can. We hope to have a new connection in place by the end of November at which point we can resume regular updates and hopefully show our webcams again!
