An evening by the lake - Lake Vrynwy

Today we took advantage of being a single parent family and after school we headed to the Beautiful Lake Vrynwy which is located close to where we live. This afternoon the weather was stunning and it was wonderful to take full advantage of it. 

Firstly we drove around the lake as all the children were tired stopping at various points round the lake. dotted around the outside the lake are these pretty little waterfalls. Kellyn remembered the last time we were at the lake when we had the last bad snow fall we went off roading in the 4x4 we had then enjoying various views around wales.
During one stop at a picnic area i was able to get lots of shot of these beautiful Chaffinches. I was totally chuffed to bits.
As we head away from the lake Kellyn wanted to know about why the lake was here. The lake is actually man made and even today the original village of Llanwddyn. The lake serves Liverpool with its water supply. Today the surrounding area has recently been put up for sale.  Today was such such a clear day we could see Rhiwargor Falls in the distance another place well worth a visit. 

After our drive around the dam we visted the sculpture park its great to visit with small children and the footpaths make the area very accessible with a pushchair. The sculpture trail is a series of various wooden sculptures which our children love to spot and talk about each one is different. and the children interpreted them in different ways. 

There is just so much to do here it make a really nice cheep day out.there are also trails provided by the RSPB and children usually get prizes at the end.
