Stormy seas


This was the scene shortly after 10am yesterday morning on the North Shore.

Strong winds and rough seas meant that the scheduled arrival at Llandudno Pier of the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, the Waverley, had to be cancelled. However, at the time of writing this, she is still due to arrive at Llandudno today… weather permitting!

More about the Waverley’s sailings can be found here.



  1. He he… It’s sunny and warm here!
    Finally! πŸ˜‰

  2. A bit rough for a boat trip for sure, looks more like November out there.

  3. Wow that’s rough!!. I though that was a bit of debris on the shore. But its the jetty i think!!..hope the captain steered clear till the storm abated.”be nice to see the steamers again at the end of the pier… πŸ™‚

  4. That photo has a winter look to it.

  5. Wow – what a sea that is!

  6. I hope so because I’d like to see her! This looks a bit like autumn, doesn’t it?

  7. Looks a bit gruesome!

  8. Wild and wonderful. Hope the steamer can make it today and that you get a photograph.

  9. Last time I was on the Waverley she was in the Bristol Channel sailing from Penarth to Weston and back. Marvellous how she still survives.
