Today was pretty uneventful. Like yesterday I decided to have a sort of half day. I had errands to do and wanted to watch the Wales team’s homecoming. Plus I’m continuing to have technical trouble when it comes to getting this blog online. Ah well…

I started walking in the evening. There were some beautiful colours on the trail.

This part of the Wales Coast Path runs side by side with the A55 mostly, sometimes the railway and sometimes road and rail. It’s noisy and busy. There is an alternative upland route which is taken in Conwy and rejoins the main path in Llanfairfechan. But I was on the lowland route.

Passing by Penmaenmawr’s skate park on the promenade, I was impressed by the street art on show.

The trail then followed a relatively new (built in 2009) pedestrian and cycle bridge above the A55. A lot of engineering had gone into this.

The view from the uppermost section of the walkway was incredible. To my right, Y Gogarth (Great Orme) and Llandudno, while to my front and slightly left, Ynys Seiriol (Puffin Island) and Ynys Môn (Anglesey).


It didn’t take long to reach Llanfairfechan. My stopping place for the evening.
