Our visit to the lake this morning.

22 comments


A very peaceful setting this morning with the occasional fisherman…..how they have the patience, I don’t know. Still each to their own.
There was a breeze showing gentle ripples.There’s always a mixed selection of ducks and geese.
Usually the small rowing boats are evident,but sadly not today.
Our morning was rounded off with an outside coffee…how soon will we will be able to enjoy these liberally I wonder.

A spectacular Weeping Willow.

The Canada geese are so use to the public walking near to them.

The last photo shows a lakeside border of mixed wild flowers.

Very picturesque area, Julia. I like the 2nd one - itโ€™s so idyllic! Iโ€™m pleased you enjoyed your day out, very restful and lots of fresh air and pretty scenery too.

Looks a very peaceful place to visit. We had to give way to a small flock of geese crossing a country lane today on our travels. They took their time over it, saw no need to rush at all!

Thank you Stera,Kate and Anget...we will probably visit frequently...water always calms my inner thoughts.
Anget,the Canada geese seem so laid back!

That will make a lovely watercolour Julia. Do you know what the overhanging tree is?

I'm sure it will,Sheila...but as for the type of tree...ooh I'm panicking...I don't know...will take a special notice on our next visit.

Lovely photos. I agree with you regarding your water colour painting it is a lovely setting.
I have been painting two water colour paintings for birthday presents. It was a change from dead heading!!!

I should say,Marj...at the moment there's a brief interlude before the 2nd flush.

I can sense the peacefulness of this place from your lovely photographs.

We have now found two places that serve coffee in cups again - it is such a treat!!!

What a treat that must be,Chris...we didn't have that luxury, sadly...plastic cups.

Thank you SB..one of our favourite places.

Looks like you have it all to yourself... .shame not to see more people there that appreciate such beautiful mornings in nature.

It looks very relaxing Julia. We have a similar park here but don't visit it very often as no one seems to be following the distancing rules!

How lovely, soo nice to have such a pleasant tranquil area in walk in.

What a shame,Rose..some people don't realise they are spoiling it for others.There are very few people using the one we visit.

Thank you LL and Loosestrife.
