Westport Lake

Last time we moored here by Westport Lake we walked all over the place.  There's so many interesting places to check out.  But... we didn't walk back towards the Harecastle Tunnel direction and this morning while browsing around on Google Maps I noticed there appeared to be some shops in that direction.  Further investigation showed and Aldi and an Asda supermarket.  We decided to go and have a look. 

Mick was mortified to discover a tile warehouse just up from the canal.  He'd walked miles carrying tiles for the installation of the sold fuel stove last year.  Now we find one just around the corner.  Never mind.  We bought a few bits and pieces at Asda and Aldi and had a good browse.

After lunch we went for a walk around the lake.  Being a lovely sunny day there were people everywhere.  We felt like we were joining the throngs.  There's a lot of bird life on the lake and we saw some unusual behaviour from a pair of swans.  The rushed out of the water and marched off looking very aggressive.  Not sure what all that was about.  We also saw elderly twins dressed in identical outfits.  You don't see that very often.

We had a lovely day and we just couldn't ask for better weather.
