Llandudno

The Great Orme Tramway has existed since 1902, and it, along with the San Francisco tram network, are the only remaining ones of their type.

Today I went to Llandudno, North Wales. It’s been a while, and now I have my camera, so I took that along with me. I coerced my parents into paying for one of the City Sightseeing tours, as there was one there. It went over to neighbouring Conwy too, and I got many images, all of which can be seen here.

The day began with a 9am start, which is early for a Sunday, for me! We made haste to the A55 and barrelled down it before the traffic could build. We saw many strange and classical cars from a range of locations and times driving along the A55, the strangest was when we were taken over by an Illinois registered muscle car. Getting to Llandudno at around 10:30, we put four hours on the pay and display, and went over to the pier. Every other time we’d have gone down it, but this time we stopped for the above tour, and that took an hour. We saw some interesting sights and learned some of the local history, a lot of which I already knew.

When we arrived back we went to a JD Wetherspoons for a meal. I remembered I wasn’t driving so I had a few pints around now. We then went over to the tram station and spent an hour and a half ascending, discovering, and descending the Great Orme, after which we headed back to the car and home again.

I’ve noticed an increasing amount of dust on the image sensor of my camera, evidenced in recent images. I’m going to have to buy an air blower to remove the dust, as touching it will make it worse. If that won’t do it, I’ve heard cleaning alcohol and a lint free cloth should work, but I really don’t want to touch the image sensor, so I may see if I can’t get it cleaned somewhere. Anyway, I’ve not done an image collage in a while, so here goes:
