This is the wing which looks like an outdoor booze area. It’s lit up but no one is on it tonight. It’s a cool 4 I think.....
Showers are in the main cabin and I’m surprised how many people have checked in after me. A good dozen or more !!

In the morning, I’ll take some daytime photos ....

It was a partially wet day
