Season's Greetings and Happy New Year!
How many people know that North Somerset has its own Lake District? The lakes are visible on the UK weather map and are properly water reservoirs.

We had a family lunch out at the wonderful Bear and Swan in Chew Magna yesterday, which I would recommend for its delicious food and excellent service in an attractive setting, and then went on to drive home through the Lakes. We stopped briefly in the chilly lay-by at the end of Chew Lake to wish the water fowl a Happy New Year before driving through the twilight to the warmth of home
