Saturday 3rd May

Alton Water was the venue for Heather & Val on this lovely spring morning. We decided to walk the whole way round which includes the bit on the other side of the road. For some reason most people leave this off the walk, it only adds and extra mile and a half.

On this extra part of the walk someone had 'planted' a head of celery on the path, (wish we had taken a photo). Further along there was a large hand of bananas. We couldn't stand it any longer we had to ask some workmen (trimming trees) how it had got there. Apparently someone had thrown the food from their car as they passed, so they decided to have a bit of fun with it. It could only happen in Suffolk!

There were a number of cyclists on the path as well as joggers and a few walkers, usually it's pretty quiet, but I suppose that's because we normally walk this route during the winter months.

There were swans, ducks and geese on the water together with a few small sailing boats dotted about, what a lovely way to spend a morning.

By the time we had got almost back to the cars, it was getting quite hot and we were very tempted to soak our feet in the reservoir, but didn't just in case we were caught!
