  6. Another hilly lovely place.

  7. Rooms with views in a very attractive part of the town.

  8. Impressive indeed!

  9. What a fantastic view but what is an orme?

    • Below is a description taken from the Visit Llandudno website:

      ‘The name “The Great Orme” is believed to come from the Old Norse word “Horma Hava” meaning dragon or sea monster. The Orme was given this name as it does appear as though it is a monster rising from the sea when viewed from a distance. Even today, visitors of Llandudno see the Orme shape and comment on how it looks like a crocodile as the way the Orme has shaped over the years does make it appear as though it is a large crocodile lying across the head on Llandudno staring out to sea.’

  10. the rocky hill is so pretty….looks like a beautiful day!
