One of the many hilarious moments came when we were strolling along the pier, ice-creams in hand. As soon as we stepped out of the shelter of the awnings, poor Clive had his cornet whipped from his grasp by an enthusiastic gull - possibly one of those in the photo above, which we took a short while later.

Back to the literature. I didn't know this, but apparently Llandudno was a favourite holiday destination for Alice Liddell, the real-life Alice from Lewis Carroll's stories, and to this end there is a Wonderland trail through the town (see above). The town's website says that the Walrus and the Carpenter are the names of two big rocks off the West Shore. And as if that wasn't enough, there is also a plaque as part of the North Wales Film and Television Trail (who knew!) commemorating the fact that The Forsyte Saga was filmed in the town.
I wrote lots of notes for use in future writings. Do think this means I can claim this as a business trip?
We love Llandudno, Julia - my sis-in-law and her husband live along in Rhos on Sea and we had a wonderful walk there last year. Completely agree about the British seaside, though husband complains about the lack of sunshine!ReplyDelete
It was all so civilised, Rosemary. We shall definitely go back.ReplyDelete
I also adore Llandudno, and the punch and judy is classic. You can't beat a mooch around a traditional British resort. Glad you had a good time and hope you put those notes to good use, Julia.ReplyDelete
I also adore Llandudno, Julia. The seagull wans't so civilised though was he? He he, it's always funny when they swoop and grab. All part of the fun.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Susan. Yes, I've got lots of pics and prompts to hand and a few funnies to work on.Delete
Sounds lovely, you're not alone in loving the British seaside. We've enjoyed many a stroll, and up hill struggle to get a glimpse of a good view and a breath of bracing air! You've reminded me how any experience is useful for writing. I listened to the end of one of Radio 4's Listening Project broadcasts this morning - apparently writers use the archive - I guess to pick up snippets of real dialogue. Anyway, glad you both had a good time.ReplyDelete
Thanks for commenting, Elaine. Yes, it was most restorative.Delete
