We met up with these guys early one brilliant sunny morning at a favourite family spot. We’d never visited Foremark Reservoir before – in fact we’d never even heard of it until Alison mentioned that Oliver loved it there – but we soon saw the attraction. Yeah you can go sailing and fishing on the reservoir, and the play area’s cool. But the best thing is the sand. It’s almost beach-like in quality – semi-golden, soft (enough) – and for a few sweet moments we forgot that we live in one of the places in the UK that’s furthest from the ocean. It was also a great spot to hang out, dig around and take photos.
We loved seeing Oliver’s personality shine through as he showed off acorn cups he had collected and went on a mission to throw the biggest rocks he could find into the water. Dave & Alison are expecting their next addition to the family very soon. We wish them all the best!
Thanks Rice family for introducing us to a favourite place. We’ll be visiting again soon!
