Bewl Water 16.03.08
One of the Seven Wonders of the Weald*, Bewl Water, is South East Kent's largest lake. This was our destination on our Sunday drive. It was a cold and wet day but, that didn't deter the committed sailors...the lake was really busy. We will definitely be back. We look forward to doing the 17mile walk around the lake and the cycle route is a must. We will be sure to pack a picnic to replenish our energy levels. A brochure highlights events for the year e.g. Flyfishing courses, a Photography Exhibition., Vintage Car rallys...the "Have-a-go" weekend looks like fun where one can try one's hand at canoeing, sailing or windsurfing..I wonder who will win the Dragon Boat races, a fundraising event held each year?
We ended our day at Nero's coffee shop with a delicious Cafe Mocha (coffee and chocolate drink). George browsed through the Sunday papers and I curled up on chair to contue savouring the book, "The House at Riverton", a wonderfully written book by Kate Morton. This is the first book that I have bought since I arrived...at a charity shop.
The charity shops in the High Street are great places to browse...I can't resist popping in while walking past...lots of knick knacks - old and new - and some really useful things at only a few pounds.
