Colwyn Bay to Llandudno and retun walk

We decided to go for a walk and the original plan was to do the Great Orme, its one we have done before and it takes in spectacular views of Conwy, Anglesey and the coast up to the Wirral and beyond on a clear day.We decided to park the car in Colwyn Bay in fact near to the cafe we rode to some days ago, off we set to a high tide with high gusting winds but flat seas.
The walk up the Little Orme was great as I could see many paddling views but from the land, some steep inclines but we got there and eventually back on the road to Llandudno.
A stop for refreshments and back I must confess my legs were tired and on arriving home calculated we had done approximately 18 miles, please enjoy some of the views.
Whilst on route I recalled that Mike M had mentioned the views from the Little Orme and he also mentioned that it was slightly undulating.
One of our usual brew stops a lovely bay
Llandudno with Puffin Island and Anglesey in the background Some mining debris on the Little Orme Panoramic views of Rhos on Sea Some burning not sure if it was controlled
Nearly at the top Mags
The oldest Chapels in the British Isles dating from the 6th Century,there is a natural spring below and it also explains the features on the shore there is a man made fish pool.
