We took another trip out to Llandudno, it seems to be one of our happy places, although I’m not sure Simon would agree as every time I suggest it the weather forecast gives severe weather warnings ! Last time it was gale force winds, this time extreme heat.

Expecting it to be busy we set off early and had a quick stop for petrol and breakfast. We arrived to a very sunny but not too busy promenade, parked up and started to walk. Due to the hot weather we decided to take an easier route up The Great Orme this time. On the tram.

We got off at the top and walked around to admire the views, then stopped for a cup of tea (Simon can’t last more than a couple of hours without one) and wandered downhill. First stop was the Bronze mines (post to follow) then continued on round the back road to St Tudno’s church and graveyard.

It was beautiful and peaceful, although I did have a moment when I thought I heard a man humming, when no one was around (it was a jet ski on the water below) after a slow leisurely walk back into Llandudno we stopped for a spot of lunch, drink and cool down in a little cafe.

Walking back towards the promenade we spotted a boat trip about to leave and made a snap decision to jump onboard. It was lovely to sit back, enjoy the breeze and listen to the commentary about the area. It lasted around 30 minutes.

We wandered back towards the pier. The plan was to try and complete some of the items on The 100 list – fish and chips on a pier – due to the extreme heat we decided ice cream on the pier was a much better idea. So I’m counting it as half completed. But my favourite part of the day was going on the Ferris wheel, and yes we completed another from the list. We kissed at the top x

On the Ferris wheel, just before the top !
