On The Waterfront

Very pleasing to see so much work going on at Colwyn Bay's Promenade. After a couple of decade's worth of council neglect, work has finally started to rebuild and revamp the Promenade. Even in its neglected state, the area was still busy on a Summer's day; think how busy it could be if it looked attractive and had some decent attractions...

We just need to hope that the Pier gets sorted out soon. Fingers crossed on that one!

Palace of Pleasure

I found this old photo from about 2005 recently, it shows a vain attempt by an amusement arcade owner to conjour up the spirit of Las Rhyl. I've always seen it as symbolic of Rhyl's sad decline as a seaside resort. The sign, building and funfair behind have all been demolished in the last few years, as part of the Welsh Assembly Government's regeneration plans for Rhyl.

Tower Of Mystery

Tower Of Mystery, originally uploaded by davidrobertsphotography.

This odd looking structure is on the beach at West Shore, Llandudno. I believe one of the local residents built it in the 1970s as a look out point for their house (which was on top of the cliff) but dont have any details. It's now abandoned and semi-derelict. Couldnt find a way up to the top of the tower, although we did look!
