Travelogue #4 Llandudno
Updated: Aug 14, 2020
Another beautiful sunny day in Wales today. Yesterday was the same too. I must admit, I was expecting thunderstorms but it seems the Samsung weather forecaster on my phone has got it wrong as usual...
We had a nice amble around the shops in Llandudno yesterday and I just happened to stumble across a Wizarding Emporium. Think the woman in there knew more about Harry Potter than I did! A fabulous shop www.wizardingboutique.com if you want to see. Ended up with a Dobby keyring for my house keys and a few other bits and pieces. Well, why not? ;)
We enjoyed a tasty and locally made sandwich lunch sitting on the beach followed by custard tarts (yum). The tide comes in really quickly here (don't ask me how I know!). A short walk later and we found the Happy Valley Gardens just around the corner from the hotel. Wow! It's situated in the shadow of the Great Orme and is absolutely beautiful.
Will post more photos once they've uploaded. We only have free wifi downstairs so it's taking ages to do anything really.
Today, we're heading out on the bus to Conwy. I was last there back in the 70's but I do remember a rather stunning castle. Won't be the same as Mt. Orgueil in Gorey in the Channel Islands but I expect it will be a good substitute lol!
Will report back here if time tomorrow but the coach is taking us to see Snowdonia and we have to be on early so I'll post when I can.
Hope you're all having a wonderful week and not getting too hot and bothered.
