... our way through an exceptionally well-marked path of beautiful old trees and plants. And halfway through our walk we discovered the Rest an'be Thankful bench, where we sat and did just that.

Hiring a couple of padded mats we made a beeline for the place. When we first arrived there were just a couple of locals there, the river was freezing but it was addictive fun and we kept having "Just one more go" before leaving as an ordinary family estate car pulled ...
