Saturday 22 February was a cool damp morning, for The Softies visit to a new location for us, Hillsborough Forest Park. But we are an intrepid bunch. So suitably clothed in waterproofs and walking boots, we eased our way around this delightful and beautiful park, with its pristine lake and historic military Fort. As usual the craic was lively and the jokes well-worn, and some even managed to survive a lowly rope bridge along the way. The best bit was our later retreat to the nearby and glorious Mill Farm restaurant, where we consumed some of the best scones and coffees we have encountered so far on our travels.
