Today we went to a place nearby called Bewl Water. It's only about 15 minutes away from where we live and yet we'd never been there, and we didn't even know about it, until a friend (who we went with today) told me about it.
Bewl Water is an area consisting of a lake and its sorrouding green spaces, where visitors can go for walks or bike rides, and also boat trips or water sports (sailing, windsurfing, etc). There are benches and grass areas where people can have a picnic, which is what we did today. The weather could have been better, as it was quite overcast and not very warm, but at least it wasn't raining, and it was good enough for us to enjoy it.
