Grafham Water

Back from Canada and out for a morning's walk with Kita and J... Grafham Water is a really beautiful reservoir and nature reserve about 40 minutes drive from home. It is a site of special scientific interest, and comprises a fair amount of land as well as the water; there is open grassland and wooded areas, and paths throughout. Dogs have to be kept on leads at all times (although we saw lots of dogs off leads), and aren't supposed to go near or into the water (ditto). There is a lot to do at Grafham, if you happen to get bored just walking around the place; there is sailing, waterskiing, power boating, wind surfing... There is also a lot of cycling; there is even a cycle hire/shop there. We'll definitely be back; there is a lot more to see than we managed today. Kita appreciates the sunshine and all the new smells:
