Blue sky

The-Great-Orme-Llandudno

Looking from our shop on the pier yesterday afternoon towards the Great Orme.

The building visible on the left is opposite where the toll is now collected for vehicles wanting to go around Marine Drive, and below is an excerpt taken from Old Llandudno with regard to Marine Drive:

The first route round the perimeter of the Great Orme was a footpath constructed in 1858 by Reginald Cust a Trustee of the Mostyn Estate. In 1872 the Great Ormes Head Marine Drive Co. Ltd. was formed to turn the path into a carriage road. Following bankruptcy, a second company completed the road in 1878. The contractors for the scheme were Messrs Hughes, Morris, Davies, a consortium led by Richard Hughes of Madoc Street, Llandudno. The road was bought by Llandudno Urban District Council in 1897.

Enjoying the view

Great-Orme-Llandudno

This young goat and its mother are enjoying basking in the sunshine, and possibly the view down to the bay before them.

Yesterday Llandudno was named as the third best UK destination, behind London and Edinburgh, based on ratings left by visitors on the website TripAdvisor. Which, given number one and two are both capital cities, must surely make Llandudno the UK’s number one seaside town!

In the dark

Solar-Eclipse-2015

After several successive days of abundant sunshine the much awaited partial solar eclipse arrived on Friday morning, to cloudy skies… suffice to say Saturday and Sunday were both clear and sunny too!

The tiny sliver of blue towards the top right is where the sun is just visible…
