Dovestone Reservoir

 William and I decided to go for a walk over at Dovestone Reservoir this afternoon. 


The weather wasn’t at its best, there were grey clouds and half the time we thought it was going to pour down.  Thankfully, it never did.

Blue skies or not, boy, was it beautiful out there!  Autumn’s colours were in fine fettle.

It’s about a 2.5 mile walk around the reservoir but didn’t seem that far today.  There was so much beauty to admire along the way.

It took us roughly an hour and a half to get round.  Mainly because I was stopping to take photos all the time.  Except this one, of course, which Billy took.  Didn’t he do well?

I love autumn.  Actually, I love all four seasons here in Great Britain.  I don’t even mind the rain too much.  Without it our land wouldn’t be half so green and lush would it?

Toward the end of our walk, (we had attacked the res clockwise), we found this gorgeous little area.  It’s just perfect for picnics and perfect for our little boys. They will all three love to play in that boulder filled stream whatever the season.  In fact we need to organise it and go back with all of them very soon.

We completely enjoyed the scenery, exercise and fresh air and because we hadn’t taken a picnic – we will next time though, every where we go we’re seeing people enjoying picnics in the cold autumn air -  we called at the garden centre outside of Uppermill on the way back to enjoy a Kaffee und Kuchen.

Until next time,

Hi - glad to see you managed to drag William out again. You looked to have had a good day and once again brilliant photos - I love the autumnal colours. LS xxx
