ABC Wednesday - Etang Moulin Neuf

A peaceful lake near Rochfort en Terre in France.  This is the Etang du Moulin-Neuf, I did not spot any trace of the nine windmills but this 40 hectare stretch of water now attracts runners, walkers (with and without dogs) and fishermen. The wily pike and perch may even lurk beneath these water lilies.  No French leisure destination would be complete without a restaurant and that is the building in the distance. A path runs all the the way round and nature surrounds,  the only swan I saw was this one -
  but there were many birds
I think I know where this artist of nature lives because by all these little touches of art was a painted sign
advertising the walk from the lake to the village of Pluherlin which seems to have everything to keep body and soul together.

The letter of N is this week's stop on the ABC Wednesday journey of  the alphabet.

Love the idea of a restaurant within walking distance of the natural area! (I knew I had some French blood in there somewhere ;>)

What a lovely place, with food awaiting after the walk. The sky looks lovely reflected on the water.

Another beautiful journey thanks to you-it looks like it should be painted (plein air kind of thing).
