Having farewelled the walking cyclist, I spotted a style built giving anglers access over a fence and at the same time I appreciated a grand curve in the Derwent River down below.
The views of the river, the paddocks and the sheep were magnificent.
As usual, continual direct access to the river was impossible. This time, the very steep and slippery river banks were the greatest impediment.
I continued along Glenora Road until I was able to follow a vehicular track to the water. On the river edge, a large irrigation pump took pride of place. The water was clear. The sun sparkled across the surface. But access to the water was denied me because a steep slippery mudbank, which I did not believe I could climb back up if I slipped down, separated me from that elusive fluid.
