Ulley reservoir.


After a few cocktails on Friday night I woke on Saturday feeling tired and hungry, so Saturday's plan was to take a drive somewhere, go for a walk and get lunch in a country pub.

We didn't want to go too far so we settled on Ulley reservoir which is a short drive from where we live. It turns out Ulley is a beautiful village with humongous houses and sweet little cottages. It was so quiet and peaceful, we could have moved right in!

We parked up at a pub and strolled down to the reservoir where we saw ducks, birds and dozens of blue damselflies. Signs told us we could have seen some water voles but in the words of Jonathan "I don't see any water voles but I can see a Capri Sun". Why are people such litter bugs?!

Our lunch at the pub was a bit disappointing but we really enjoyed our walk. I love that we have such scenic places to go walking on our doorstep. All that walking and fresh air did me the world of good!
