A quiet lake
Barmston Lake, Washington
I was out for a leisurely drive the other afternoon when I accidentally came across this lake in Barmston, Washington just a few minutes from South Shields. I didn’t even realise that I’d never bumped into it over the past fifty years or so. I eventually found an approach which brought my car to the lakeside to take a picture and I was overwhelmed by a terrible odour. Perhaps it had previously been a sewage treatment plant or the smell was drifting from elsewhere, I felt a little sorry for the folks living in the nearby houses. However, it proved to be a haven for birds and ducks, hence the picture.
