West Kirby Beach

Yesterday we had a great day at West Kirby Beach and Marine lake. We saw Hilbre Islands, they look beautiful.

The Hilbre Islands are situated at the mouth of the Dee Estuary and they are important as a stopping-off point for the twice-yearly migration of birds along the west coast of Britain.

West Kirby, from the path between the Marine lake and River Dee.

The Marine lake is one of the largest man-made lakes in the UK. It was build in 1899 and reconstructed in 1985. It is home to Wirral Sailing Centre.

It was a strange feeling to walk between a lake and a river on a small path. But I can’t wait to do it again.

I loved it! It was a great day out with a lovely sun and a great landscape. I hope we’ll have many beautiful days, so we can go there again. There are 200 place of free parking, but if it’s crowded you can go in the pay & display parking lot.
