This is one of those places we keep going back to. Usually in the summer months and with swimming on our minds.
Earlier this year (2017), we went for a meander along the stream. It was hot out and mushrooms were growing all over the trails and trees.
We made it to the usual first stop, on a pebble beach with still slow waters. The trails were unusually empty of other casual wonderer's.
So we took advantage, with out our swimming togs with us, we stripped down to our undergarments and jumped right in. Splashing and dancing about like we owned the river.
This is about when we were over run with maddening amounts of Sandflies. It was one of those tricky situations when you have to sacrifice your own skin in order to save the kids from getting bitten.
Lets just say it was a painful and itchy experience. I would still do it again and recommend it to you. Such a nice guy I am.
