Llandudno Break

We are back from our lovely break to Llandudno tonight..3 nights staying in one of the best B+B's we have ever stopped in. Walsall House  comes highly recommended by us-its just 5 mins walk from the front, just 3 bedrooms and is spotless clean everywhere..The bed is one of the most comfortable ever--the food is delicious and fact no complaints!!! Except for my bloody health as usual--had a huge flare up of the polymyalgia and the rheumatoid arthritis as couldn't walk far until the strong meds had kicked in--the steroids have gone up again too--fingers crossed it will be a short lived flare--we have a lot coming up again this week--Onslow Park Steam Rally is this Sunday and Monday..

lots of lovely touches everywhere in the room,love the little teddy om the bed!
lovely bay window -ideal for people watching!
A beautiful breakfast to start the day!
great selection of jams and marmalade's on the table..

and a different tea cosy each day!! Janis makes them all!

I fell in love with this beautiful sofa in the dining room--and would love it in my living room! It would match my beautiful colourful sideboard beautiful----but Janis said she would lie on it to stop us trying to get it in the car LOL...

I love Llandudno front..we went for a walk along there every evening..

there is a huge wind farm off shore--my new camera picked it up pretty well!

caught this shot in the afternoon..will be painting it-possibly as a class subject-watch this space!

love this shot--

It was great to meet up with Louise and Derek over at Holyhead on Sunday-- we all met for the first time years ago when there was a meet at the Cottage of Content where we did the famous Boobtiful painting to raise money for breast cancer.. we have been friends on Facebook since but this was first chance to catch up in real life! They are coming over to Ludlow next year so we will meet up again then--looking forward to it very much!  We had a scrummy 3 course meal at The Driftwood...

passed by Conwy castle on the way back to LLandudno..

We had lovely weather the whole time we were away--a bit windy but dry.. we had a bit of rain on the way home today but it didn't last very long...

We  have passed this place The Ugly House many times over the years but never stopped for a we did-- beautiful old house-dating from the 1400's  and its now a cafe..

its built out of huge boulders..

beautiful gardens, we didn't get around them as it was drizzling and my legs couldn't do the hilly bits!

must say its one of the most expensive cafes we have been in--£8.25 for a jacket spud--how can they justify that? We just had a coffee!!

Next stop was Llangollen...lovely  little place

watched these mad folk going down the rapids!

and we ended up here for a ploughman's lunch...very good it was too!
