The Great Orme, Llandudno


We walked along part of the pathway that goes around the Great Orme in Llandudno today

We've been saying we would do it for years


The sea birds circled


Our starting point at West Shore was busy with walkers ... with and without dogs ... and children played on the swings, slides and roundabouts their happy shouts of 'watch me Mum' breaking the spell of the fresh, peaceful Spring day

A lone swan circled the boating lake, tucking his head under his wing to keep the world away ... making us both think of a day long ago


The feral goats were as laid back as we felt


 Busy doing nothing in the long grasses and bracken


After an hour or so we were tired, and little Pug legs had had enough

 Next time we'll take the tram

    1. My mom and I went there in 1998 and we loved ui. We had fallen in love 13th century Welsh history and found a wonderful guide to take us to everywhere Llewellyn the Great had anything to do with. I went back in 2012 and sprinkled her ashes at the top.

  4. Beautiful pictures. What a difference good weather makes to what we do and how we feel. We took the dogs to the beach at the weekend. There is an adjoining campsite which is usually full during the Easter holidays. It was empty!!
