When we finally got there and were driving down that rocky road however, we came to a place where the river runs right across the road... Now normally Mick says it is very shallow and you just drive across... however that day, due to so much heavy rainfall from the days before, the river was raging, and it was not so shallow... Signs had been placed up at the side of the road saying not to cross and that it was too deep for two wheel drive vehicles... And so we watched in utter dismay as a couple big, burly four wheel drives passed us by and forged easily through the river... on to fun, swimming, and Mick's boyhood camping ground... We were tempted for a few breif moments to still try... maybe we could make it... Mick got out and walked down closer to the river to have a better look... We even considered parking the car and crossing it ourselves and walking the rest of the way... however it was still a good distance past the river, and we had ALL five girls with us all the way down to little Lana... and the idea of hoofing it did not seem fun.
And so it was, we turned our car around the tried to revise our plan as all the kids behind us began to echo in a chorus of dismay. Down the road I had seen a picturesque park with picnic tables and so we decided to atleast stop there to enjoy some lunch.
