Reservoir Dubbs

Our pal Angela came up the other weekend for a visit, with the lovely Pete. We decided to go for a walk on Sunday to the Queen's Head at Troutbeck. Luckily the weather held off long enough to get there and enjoy a well deserved pint or two and some yummy grub. On the way, we passed Dubbs Reservoir and were shocked to find a proliferation of Warning signs, from danger of getting your eyeball ripped out with a stray fishing line, to drowning in deep water, to death by electrocution, to, most surprisingly, danger of breeding Adders! (this is the Lake District!). It appears the countryside is not such a gentle place to be, but hey, that's what we like - a sense of danger and a feeling of living life on the edge...
