Another beautiful day in Llandudno and I took the opportunity to take a few photos from the top of the Little Orme.

What a day in Llandudno! Town was really busy and it was great to see so many visitors enjoying the town in the glorious sunny weather. Felt like it was the middle of August, not April!

An adorable little pig, to be found with his pal in the grounds of the Gwrych Caravan Park at Abergele. He enjoyed having his head scratched (by me obviously!).

I was up on Anglesey Road on Sunday evening in the hope of taking some decent Sunset photos across West Shore and Conwy Bay. I didn't get anything really exciting but this one is not too bad, I think.

News has surfaced in the local press that Conwy Council may be preparing to buy Colwyn Bay Pier from the Receivers for £35,000 and then hand it over to the Pier Pressure Group to run.
Regardless of the rights or wrongs of the various parties surrounding the ownership issue, I'm delighted by this news, because it means that the deadlock may finally be broken. The Pier has become little more than a ball to be kicked around by people with various agendas, whilst the Pier itself decays a little more every day.
Let the Pier Pressure Group have it...and let them try to harness the local community to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in with both physical work and fund-raising. It's sink or swim time for them...and I wish them the best of luck.
