The little monkey had been nattering us to take him for a picnic, so earlier this week we headed over the hills to revisit Dovestone Reservoir.
Dovestone sits at the edge of Saddleworth, on the Manchester side of the Moors at the edge of the Peak District. It's a lovely, chilled out walk round. For some info, click HERE.
The weather was a bit dull, but a few glimpses of blue kept our hopes up, and we explored a few bits we'd not seen before. A little picnic kept the monster happy and all was well until half way round. The bit dull turned to very dull, and then to complete downpour for the rest of the walk. We sheltered in the trees for a bit, but still got absolutely drenched by the time we got back to the car!
We still had fun though. And Mr Little Legs walked the entire route without a single complaint. That's deffo one for the books!
Here are some snaps.

We decided to go for a little drive over the moors to feed the ducks. Dovestone Reservoir is nestled at the edge of the Peak District on Saddleworth, just out of Yorkshire and into Manchester. It was sunny. It rained. It hailstoned. There was snow on the moors. It was a little bit blowy and pretty nippy. We had a freezing picnic which we had to share with a cocky pheasant. Our little Freddie Bear fed the ducks and loved every minute! I nearly fell over 4 times - that's what happens when you can't be bothered to get your walking boots out of the garage and you try to walk muddy paths in a pair of converse!
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
