An Afternoon By The Lake

Completed some feedback forms on student dissertations this morning as my last task for teaching for UWE this year - a few more left to do. Went off to Chew Valley Lake in the van this afternoon - it was idyllic. Warm enough to wear shorts and T shirt at last.
I managed to get really quite close to this damsel fly - note the shadow of its folded wings  to its left.
The sun glittered on the water. 
It was lovely sitting in the van with a cup of tea while Bella sunbathed and chewed a stick. 
Walked up to the cafe and got an ice cream. 
Spotted this fisherperson in the water (doing a King Arthur impression?) - still quite cold,, I'd guess. 
We decided that we will take off in the van tomorrow for a day or two - before we sell it! Watch this space for reports as to where we end up…
This day a year ago, we went out to Carlingcott where we spotted this rather unusual sign.
