As if Storm Callum had never touched us, the day dawn bright and still. May be a bit of frost on the ground or just a heavy dew, it is definitely colder, but hey the sun is shining – let’s enjoy! We drove to Llanfairfechan and parked up in the free beach front carpark. The main beach was just a series of banks of pebbles, though maybe some sand is exposed at low tide.
Walking on beyond (west), we found our sand. Fabulous sand banks as far as the can see with Anglesey and Puffin Island clearly visible in the background.
We enjoyed the sun and views for awhile as the tide started to make an impact, shrinking the sand banks as we watched.
In pursuit of more sand we decided to walk back into Llanfairfechan past the boating lake and follow the coastal path eastwards.
Along the promenade passing the main village beach (all stony still).
Now, we messed up somewhere and ended up walking on the footpath along the side of the very busy A55 – not at all pleasant even with the lovely views out to sea on our left.
After a rather hurried walk for a good mile and then a complicated route over the A55 and then back underneath it again, we arrived in Penmaenmawr.
Another pebbly beach, separated from the village by the roaring A55 – not high on my list of favourite spots but the sun was nice and Poppydog was happy chasing stones.
On the way back we managed to stick with the coastal path for a much more pleasant walk high up above the A55.
What a lovely little turret..
Mmmm not the best nine mile walk we have undertaken – higher hopes for tomorrow- let’s hope we hang on to the sunshine.
Two thoughts of the day:
The signal is not strong enough on site to load these photos and the blog so there will be a days delay in my news!
Is it my imagination but are the place names becoming more unpronounceable the further north we go?
