Better still, the house was ensconced in an area filled with sandstone boulders just perfect for climbing. This helped salvage a little 'vacation' for the people who weren't at the hospital. We had brought our climbing rope, shoes and some basic equipment, and when the sun came out we were able to saunter down there and scramble around, do a bit of top-roping, look for lizards, admired the vegetation.
The comfort and amenities of the house turned out to be a real blessing when it ended up (a) pouring rain for a day and (b) being the location of a 3-day medical recuperation.
