Once went on holiday to Llandudno as a girl -is there still a little fun-fair on the pier? Loved the ghost train
Is it the Great Orme which we had to walk up -seem to remember finding fossils too...will have been about 9 at the time.

Yes, there is a little bit of a fun fair on the pier........and it would have been the Great Orme you walked up.......quite a pull up there and bracing at the top.

Might bring back some memories.

You've taken some wonderful photos Margaret, remembered many of the places and the cable car -had forgotten that. Took a steam train trip up into the mountains somewhere too.

A proper English beach holiday,complete with rainy days spent indoors playing board games and cards , is NOT slumming it. Only had a few that I can remember - In Cornwall a few times, Llandudno once. But they hold special memories and the rainy days were only a few.

Do you use a simple digital camera or is it a reflex digital? You seem to have a real eye for a subject.

Re: Cruising

I have a very good compact point and shoot camera and two 'bridge camera's'.
the bridge camera's are not quite DSLR's(the do have interchangeable lenses - which the compact camera's don't have) but they have more flexibility than the point and shoot camera's.
Thank you for your lovely comments about my pictures. If you get a chance to look at my blogs, they are illustrated with some of the pictures. Some of the stories will have you crying with laughing too.(I like to think I can write and take pictures....deluded, plain deluded)
I think the railway journey you took was probably on the Welsh Highland Railway.....from Porthmadog to Blaennau Ffestiniog and then on to Caernarfon.
It is a lovely scenic trip if the weather is kind, but foul if the mist draws in.

Re: Cruising

Looks like the Captain is in deep dodo, on the news this morning a phone call between the coast guard and the captain was played, he left the ship with passengers still on board, and although the coast guard actually ordered him to go back on board he seemed to refuse

Hes Actually saying now, he fell into the lifeboat n was unable to get back out, Which is different from "I was one of the last to leave the ship" which he told prosecutors the other day. Seems yeh learn summat new every day. Crap must have the same bonding power of superglue.

The Coast Guard was really losing his rage during the call, he was yelling at the guy ordering him to go back on the boat

Re: Cruising

I was amazed how someone so called professional could captain a ship this size and trip into a life boat.
I have just been watching the worst plain landings ever, doesn't give much hope. Think I'll be going camping this year.
That's if the the rain doesn't flood the campsite and drown everyone.
Must stop being so sinicle* ;-)

Are yeh gonna walk to the campsite? Most means of transport are relatively safe,Sea,Air,Rail, are all safer than car travel. if yeh concerned about human error,yeh will never go anywhere?
