Cherry Pie : The Sunday Catch Up #24

The Sunday Catch Up #24

Yesterday Vince and I celebrated being together for six years. Six whole years! I can't believe it, it's pretty much flown by. As we don't really have any money we were looking for somewhere to go that was relatively cheap so we decided upon Chew Valley Lake.

It was absolutely boiling so a pretty perfect day to go. Vince actually discovered the lake years ago, although I can't quiet remember how he discovered it. Anyway, since then it's become a lot more popular and is often quite packed unless you go for a bit of a walk. There is a little cafe so we had some lunch before setting off on a bit of a trek. It felt like we walked for miles and miles but Vince said it wasn't very far at all. It just felt far seeing as I was wearing unsuitable walking shoes.

The problem with visiting the lake on such a hot day is that it makes me want to really go swimming! I suddenly get the urge to go on holiday and go swimming in the pool or on the beach, ahh!

It was a really nice day overall and the lake is perfect for having a day out when you don't want to spend a lot. It makes a great dog walk too so would really recommend it if you own a pet.

What's your favourite thing to do when you're keeping to a budget?


  1. I love going on walks like this! I love the feeling of coming across an unexpected place that becomes a favourite little spot of yours. xx
