Last year in June, I got the opportunity to visit the North of Wales in the UK with my friends on a coach trip. We were put in a pretty rugged hotel in the sleepy town of Llandudno (don't ask me how that is pronounced) and we were to go out to different places on our coach for the next three days. The town of Llandudno overlooked the comparatively serene Irish sea and was quite a sweet place to hang out in actually. Here are some sights from the delightful town.
Here's the quiet beach on the North Shore. This was just a few minutes walk away from our hotel and we religiously came here every evening to walk on the beach. The water was blue, unlike the grey North Sea and it was quite serene when compared to the Pacific Ocean.
There were some really pretty windmills out in the sea. I think the wind velocity was enough to generate a lot of power. And they made for pretty sight-seeing as well.
A church on the street. The town was sleepy and quiet and a very chilled out place to stay in. Whenever I retire, I would love to stay at a place like this.
Caught this cute little windmill lamp in front of a restaurant. Notice how there's no dust or dirt. It is mostly because it rains so much in the area.
Grumpy's sweet shop. Need I say more?
Pretty little pebbly beach with mild waves. The tide is not too high and cotton clouds dot the sky. A perfect day to be out. Days were pretty long back then. I think this was around 8 PM.
This is the other side of the beach. In the distance is the pier, a wooden walkway into the sea. It had several shops selling trinkets, shells, magnets and seafood. The beach was quite long and we didn't manage to walk the entire length during our stay there.
Colourful pebbles beneath the water. This beach was different from any I had seen before. I was looking for shells while my friend Kelsey collected sea-glass.
People canoeing on the sea. I somehow can never trust myself on such a tiny boat on a vast body of water.
Hannah in a meditative mood down the pier. The sea looks deceptively calm. However, the waters were full of jellyfish. We saw several divers and swimmers come out of the sea with their legs bleeding.
A memorial on The Parade that runs parallel to the North Shore. The entire area was shaped like a C and was bordered by candy-coloured houses. A very charming place to be indeed.
A colourful little train that runs along The Parade. It is very popular with children and the grown-ups alike
On the whole, North of Wales was a whole new level or prettiness. Watch out for the next post. It'll definitely fascinate you. :)
