Lifestyle: A Day At My Favourite Place

Just for the record I can assure you that is in fact a massive lake, not the dried up pond it appears on camera. It makes me laugh looking at that top photo because honestly I look like an ant next to this lake. I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before but I'm a bit of a sailing freak. I don't sail myself too much (why do boats have to be so expensive?) but I love watching. The local sailing club sits on the far side of the lake (you can almost make out the clubhouse at the back of the photo). Usually the place is pretty dead. It sits in the middle of a massive group of reservoirs, rivers and lakes, which I guess as a water sports lover, is why I like going there so much. On this particular day, the sun had brought out tons of fishermen and all the local farmers and their dogs (literally) down to the banks. Amongst the cupcake-eating-hunger-games-reading relaxation there was also a bit of 'lets-run-all-the-way-around-the-lake-in-the-hopes-of-catching-the-3ft-umbrella-Mr-Lancashire-farmer-lost-grasp-of-while-his-two-sheep-dogs-chase-me'. Note. I'm petrified of dogs and I can't swim either. It was a lively day at the lake lets put it that way!
