Grafham Water clockwise

Thursday 15 February 2018. With Maureen,  on a very fine cold day. 9 miles.

Past the visitor centre and across the dam, to Perry. Then past the sailing club and to the cafe at the Fishing Lodge - Plummer Park car park. 
First break after three miles and a smidgen. Coffee in comfort.

View from the cafe

Ready for the outside world again
 Continued along the shore, past the pylons, and round to Savages Spinney.
Through the spinney
Into the sun and benches with views.

We met two women cyclists who asked us if we'd take a photo of them, and then returned the favour.
 At about six and a half miles we had an open air break, and a scone. Sun on the water, the sound of waves lapping, and not too much wind.
 We left the water's edge for a while to walk through Grafham village, and past the church.
 Soon we were back at the car park and visitor centre. Time for lunch.
