The reservoir was supposed to be much bigger when it was built, but a "land settlement" (bad planning?) meant that it couldn't be filled to intended levels. So you get a romantic, Rapunzel-style control tower in the middle that should be much deeper underwater. There's also a 2.7 mile loop around the outside, but that sounded too much like hard work so we opted for putting the kids through their paces in the adventure playground instead.
Talking of Rapunzel (although sadly there are stairs in this tower).

Hannah and Katharine power off with the twins.
Scott and I leave the heavy work to others.
We were harassed by an armada of ducks all the way around! But unfortunately didn't have any hoisin sauce with us.

Later, the electronic babysitter was employed to give us some peace.
Later still, Noa provided much entertainment. The Hammond family definitely needs a seventh member.
