West port Lake [The unconventional diaries]

Saturday we woke up to glorious weather, something the UK hasn't seem much of this summer. So we decided to take the girls out for the day to get some fresh air and burn off some of that energy being cooped up indoors .We don't get much quality time as a family lately and this is something we are trying to work on.




West port lake is actually one of our favourite places to go for a walk, its not far from us and the girls usually take their scooters and see how many laps they can do.The view is absolutely stunning and it really is a breath of fresh air.


There are two trails to choose from, a shorter one and a long one, we always take the long one, although Alessia gets a bit reluctant half way round,especially if the swans decided to attack,which they have done on numerous occasions, i am sure they can smell us coming!



There are so  many different types of birds at this lake. Myself and Kadiann always seem to spot a different kind every time we go, this time it was a funny looking fella with a completely white beak. 


We fed the ducks popcorn and they can't get enough of it, if you watch our weekly Vlogs, you will see them all in action!


There is also a park, which was absolutely packed!, and normally an ice cream van, typical it wasn't here on this occasion, but not to worry, we did end up nipping into Asda for some on the way home .






 The girls were so ready for bed when we got home, even baby Nila was exhausted. A success for mama and a nice cup of tea to celebrate!

  2. We do love a lake and what a lovely looking place to go for a walk - it really does make a big difference having a lovely park nearby for a family outing.

  3. Sometimes nothing can beat a trip to your local park in the sunshine. Shame the ice cream van wasn't there though! Looks like you had a great time.

  4. What a beautiful place. I need to find more places that the girls can take their scooters too, as I think this is a great way for them to enjoy them. That's annoying about the ice cream van, I love a 99!

  6. That looks like the perfect place for the summer holidays! I take my son to a similar spot with his scooter and he loves riding it on the track around the lake. And we also have attacking swans - my son has no fear, but I'm very wary of them! Boo to no ice cream van though - in the school holidays too!

  7. Awww, what a lovely place to visit. My eldest is starting to ask to take his bike to the park when we go, he is turning into a right little daredevil rushing down the hills!

  12. This looks beautiful, I never thought of feeding popcorn, as we have signs up now in our local park not to feed bread but popcorn would be fab.

  24. Ahh what a gorgeous park, it looks like somewhere we would really enjoy as a family too. I love that you fed the ducks popcorn! I have never thought of trying them with popcorn, we usually take bird seed, but I hate when I see people feeding them bread - it's actually the worst thing for them!

  25. It's so nice to all get out as a family and enjoy some fresh air and there is something particulalry lovely about lakeside walks. My husband would like to spot all the different birds too but the kids get bored of him with his camera! lol Mich x

  26. Looks like a lovely place to take the family (and the scooters) thankfully the weather looks as though it has finally gotten the memo about it being summer!

  27. I had no idea that ducks liked popcorn? I had heard that bread was bad for them so we haven't been for a while as I am a little stuck and never seem to make it to the garden centre to get proper food. But I think we will try popcorn next time :)
