By the seaside

Continuing along the coast for day 18 of #blogjune

Llandudno is a perfectly charming seaside town, just along the coast from my home town of Colwyn Bay, but luckily spared the indignity of having a motorway ploughed through it. Even the weather improved as we approached Llandudno, grey clouds giving way to gentle blue skies.

The “Queen of the Welsh Resorts” sits on a lovely crescent bay lined with smart mid-Victorian hotels and houses. It has a pier with some small amusements, and you can take the tram up the Great Orme for views over the town and bay.

We had one other low key seaside visit, to the little village and beach at Borth-Y-Gest near Porthmadog which was recommended to us by the friendly lady at the Caernarfon chip shop. We looked across the estuary trying to see if we could spot White Horses, but Portmeirion was tucked away behind the peninsula.
