I’m afraid I balked at this water crossing: it was wide and the bottom looked soft, and I just didn’t want to sink into the mud and get stuck half-way across. So this is as far as we got; there’s another 7 miles of road to explore on the other side… [On the second visit, we did cross, without difficulty; but these water crossings can in fact be treacherous, so I may have been right to be dubious the first time.]
