Reservoir Walk

Took a walk at the reservoir. The reservoir itself is a man-made structure, but the flora and fauna around, and in it, are all wild. The weather was a nice and warm 70 degrees, the sun was out, and it was beautiful. People were going on jogs and walking around, and there was quite a large flock of Canadian geese swimming and diving for food. There were also a lot of swans in the area, diving as well. It was pretty funny seeing them tip over. There were also turtles in the reservoir!! Which I was quite surprised to see! Three of them were just sunbathing on a rock and I spotted another two in the water. Overall, a beautiful and educational walk!
