Visiting Echo Four as part of our Loop tour, Carolyn and I (Doug) spent Sunday afternoon relaxing by the reservoir with the team. Everyone was in high spirits as we tucked into a lovely lunch and enjoyed cinnamon cafe lattes expertly made by trained barista Jenniffer Rimmer. Who knew you could make instant coffee taste so amazing! As we left the group they were starting to prepare for the up coming change over and working on their eagerly anticipated team skit.
