Llandudno, The Pier And The Great Orme

As part of our recent trek up north we spent a day out in Llandudno, a place we would often frequent when we lived in Bangor. So much so, we held our wedding reception party there at the Gogarth Abbey Hotel, which is now sadly demolished.

We took a stroll down the glorious pier, and admired the raft of wind turbines out in the Irish Sea. They weren’t there when we were back in the 1990s, and personally I think they look marvellous out there, a real spectacle. I know many don’t appreciate them, but I’d rather look at that than the horrible Hinckley B Nuclear Power Station that I can see across the water from where we live now.

We took a trip up to the top of the Great Orme, which was the first time we’d been up there, was interesting to see the little outcrops of civilization nestled in the crags and folds of the massive rock. Great views up the top stretching out across Snowdonia and as far as Anglesey and the Menai Straits in one direction, and down the coast towards the Wirral in the other. Just a shame it was so flaming windy and cold up there! Wasn’t the best of days light wise, but I got plenty of photos.
