There are three car parks to choose from and we parked at the middle car park, (which has toilets and an ice cream van serving hot drinks!) planning a big looped walk around both reservoirs. The weather was dry and actually warm at a balmy 10°!
We set off at a good pace, conscious that the winter sun that was struggling to break through wouldn’t be around for as long. We’re determined to get out walking for as long as we can, but to keep up my fitness I’m trying to get in more sessions at the gym. It’s really not the same walking along on the treadmill but I need to keep my mileage up and my legs strong.
The kids were able to run ahead along the paths playing with my walking pole pretending it was a twirling baton or a sniper rifle. They were completely splattered with mud all up their legs but were having great fun. My son even did a little tree hugging!
In just under three hours we had walked around both reservoirs and really enjoyed our walk of just over 10.3 km and there were hours of daylight left, phew.
All views are my own and I’ve received no incentive to write this.
