Welcome to ABC Wednesday where this week we celebrate the letter H as in hot, healthy, hamburgers, hat, humdinger, hair, hill, and hawk. I'm continuing the travelogue of my trip by bringing you an area of north Wales that was absolutely heavenly! My paternal grandmother was born in Llandudno, Wales, on April13, 1896, at 28 Jubilee Street. She was greeted with joy after her mother had given birth to 5 boys and after that, she went on to have one final boy! My dream has always been to see where she was born and brought up, only coming to Canada after the second world war with her husband and young son. My father and his 2 sisters were born in Canada.
My epic dream of seeing Llandudno finally arrived this summer (2016) and I was absolutely amazed at the beauty of the area. An historic town, Victorian and Edwardian atmosphere prevails everywhere, especially with the houses, hostels, and hotels. Even the newer built homes have a Victorian feel to them! The countryside is beyond beautiful, and the entire area faces out to the Irish Sea. And the people are so humble and hospitable. Take away the modern cars and you feel as though you have gone back in time.
I would like to share some of the beauty of the area through a short slideshow presentation. Mr. Google helped me out here, but I've indicated which photos are mine. And, if you're interested in learning more about this place, please check out http://www.llandudno.com/ Remember, don't tell too many people about this piece of heaven on earth - I want to go back some day and spend more time there. And I don't want any crowds! LOL
With humble thanks to the hysterical Mrs. Nesbitt (you'd know just how hysterical if you follow her on Facebook and saw her scarecrows!) and to the always hardworking Roger, our administrator. Also, don't forget to give a silent nod of thanks to the helpful team of assistants who visit all the contributors to leave heartfelt comments.
Now...on with the show and don't forget to turn up the sound and click on full screen! Oh the music is called "Epic Journey" and you won't hesitate to realize why I chose it. *smile*
