May 1st: Backtracked from Conwy to Penrhyn Bay – 12 miles EDWARD 1ST CONWY CASTLE – AN IMPOSING STRUCTURE!

‘The castle played an important part in several wars. It withstood the siege of Madog ap Llywelyn in the winter of 1294–95, acted as a temporary haven for Richard II in 1399 and was held for several months by forces loyal to Owain Glyndŵr in 1401.UNESCO considers Conwy to be one of “the finest examples of late 13th century and early 14th century military architecture in Europe”’ [Source: Wikipedia]
Today’s walk took us along the beautiful Conwy estuary as we left that wonderful castle, along storm-battered beaches, around heights of the Great Orme, into Llandudno hurriedly getting prepared for the Bank Holiday weekend [we were told ‘you are in the calm before the storm’ by the waitress who served us fish and chips at noon], over the Little Orme and down to Penrhyn Bay. Enjoy the photos……
Why are we backtracking? We have decided to backtrack for three days to avoid being caught up in the ‘Bank Holiday’ rush in Llandudno and similar seaside resorts!
