river at the mountain

The last day of the holidays before Mr Tread Softly goes back to work. We headed to the river at Mount Holdsworth for a picnic and paddles. Ice cold clear water – just the ticket for a beautifully hot summers day.

  4. It’s at the end of Norfolk Road Milly. There were a few people camping, several tramping and a us paddling in the river. It’s a lovely, pleaceful place to be.
