Llandudno 2009
A holiday for those who like to take it gently.
We arrived at the Grand hotel and met all the helpers. Heather, Wendy, Stephen, Geraint and Jane.. We met the rest of the holiday makers, Maggie, Annie, Robin, Irene, Angela and David.

After we had unpacked it was time for dinner so we took our places in the dining room and enjoyed a lovely buffet dinner.
There was to be bingo , dancing and live entertainment every evening in the ballroom and quieter music in the lounge so we could choose what we liked best.

Sunday 21st.
After a leisurely breakfast we had a look at the leaflets about the are to see where we wanted to go . After a coffee we set off down the peir to see the shops and rides. We had lunch in a cafe at the end of the peir and then walked into town to look round the shops before enjoying a cup of tea and cake in one of the many cafes there. We returned to the hotel with our shopping and some people tried on their purchases and wore them for the evening.

Monday 22nd.
We packed up a picnic and set off for Bedd Gelert where we had a nice lunch and a walk by the river to see the grave and hear the story of Bedd Gelert. Tea and cakes were a welcome addition to the afternoon before returning to the hotel to change for dinner and the evening entertainment.

Tuesday 23rd.
The day broke with sunshine so we decided another picnic was a good idea and off we went to the water gardens . there were two lovely lakes with fish, snakes and reptiles. We had a good walk round before setting off to a sea front spot for our picnic.. After a leisurely stroll along the front we had yet another trip for tea and cake.

Wednesday 24th.
Today we set off for Bettws y coed . It was a very hot day and we managed to find a very sheltered spot for another picnic lunch. It was so pleasant no one wanted to move but eventually everyone had set off for a look around. Needless to say people gradually went into cafes for tea , cakes or ice creams.

Thursday 25th.
The choice for today was a shopping trip in Llandudno so we all split up and went off to the shops and had lunch out, of course followed by more shopping and tea out. Then came our last chance for the evening entertainment and what a good show it was.
