AFTERNOON AT THE LAKE


Family Thursday this week saw us heading out for the afternoon with my parents. We took a drive to Llanberis lake which isn't too far from us and spent the afternoon on the lake. The weather was scorching, makes a change from the miserable weather we had all of last month! It was nice to get out for the day and not spend any money as we usually end up going for food somewhere on our days off. 

My dad had asked us earlier that morning if we would like to go out on the canoe's so we packed a picnic and took that with us. Amelia loved it! She was so cute wearing her little life jacket and handing us all ours before we got in the canoes. I haven't been in a kayak or canoe for nearly 10 years but having done so many a time as a kid it didn't take too long to get back into the paddling. I was slightly worried how Amelia would take to it following out pedalo incident in France when she tried to jump off it into the water as she hated it but she really enjoyed being in the canoe. She even braved jumping over in with my parents and sat well behaved with them. 

We went in and out of the little lagoons before going out onto the actual lake which was pretty windy, we had to paddle against the wind for most of it but it was fun. We'll definitely be going again sometime before the weather changes again and I'm sure we'll have many more days out on the lake next year and as she gets older.

  6. We visited Llanberis in August whilst on our hols in Wales. It rained rather a lot so we went to Electric Mountain and then the slate museum. It was a great day out!
