The pier at Llandudno in Wales is in the tradition of great seaside holiday resorts in Britain.
The white and blue wrought-iron railing of the pier looking over the headlands. It was mid-term break combined with a bank holiday, NOT the time one wants to arrive in an unexpectedly sunny May in Wales. An unusual building with an octagonal viewing pavilion. The dark blue wood ceiling of the octagonal viewing pavilion. The red Welsh Dragon on a weathervane atop one of silver-roofed buildings on the Pier.Of course there has to be an arcade! Lots of noise, lights and action!A pile of yellow prizes.Looking from the pier at picture postcard view of the busy beach.The town’s name cut into the grass of a busy park, also viewed from the pier.Pork roast, mashed potato and veg for the Sunday special at The Albert. The white rabbit from Lewis Carrol’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ shows up in Llandudno, a place where he spent a lot of time writing his magical books…The next morning, we had the usual gargantuan B&B breakfast. In addition we had selection of breakfast yogurts; the ones I’ve never had before included toffee, blackcurrant and gooseberry. More about our 2016 trip to Wales.
