France 2013(2) – Lac des Settons

I’ve been very slow to blog my holiday pictures this time, I think it’s because for once, I really didn’t want to come home.

The Boy and I are far from being ‘Beach Holiday’ people, but we ended our trip with a blissful couple of afternoons sat next to a beautiful reservoir, the Lac des Settons.

We read, snoozed and I swam in fresh water for the first time in forever.

It was close to perfection.

Bewl Water

It was lovely to have to chance to go for a walk with my Pa around (a bit) of Bewl Water on Monday morning.

The reservoir was completed in 1975, and is a lovely spot, although created at a great cost to the people who were moved, and their farms flooded.

We used to go there for walks quite a lot when we were kids…

…and it was quite lovely to spend time there, with my Pa (and Desmond the hound) once more.
