Hmm, that looks like Born to Run and I are both heading for bans then!

I would ban B2R anyway, for 'spouting drivel in a public forum'

Fester you really are a complete 11114321

Also Ian, I don't think anyone should have free and unfettered access to Fester  L0L

That report does not ring true with what is being experienced in Llandudno.

Well, the roads out of town to the A55 in late afternoon on a fine day are sometimes almost gridlocked.

Actually, that applies to almost any attraction in the UK in late afternoon on a fine day, from Robin Hood's Bay to Torquay, Alton Towers to Sennen Cove, it's not unique to Llandudno. 
Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may have been given a cactus, but you don't have to sit on it.

Ian, is there anything in the 'terms and conditions' that prevents us from using thinly-veiled or heavily disguised abuse or threats?  Perhaps innuendo and ribaldry should be covered too!
Because I have several waiting in the wings to unleash upon B2R!
I suppose that's what Moderators get paid for though, so maybe I'll just go full steam ahead and let Dave and Ian earn their inflated salaries.  :laugh: :laugh:

Quite.  F doesn't seem to agree that we're doing okay.

Ian/Steve.
What you are witnessing is the mass EXODUS from Llandudno at 4pm,   they wend there way slowly to the A55 by 5pm.

Below is a picture on Llandudno Pier at 5pm tonight....
Please don't say the weather closed in and caused it,  it was like this in blistering heat at 4pm!
You will note that ALL shops were closed, but all were open until they lost the will to live, circa 4.30pm

Oh, and just for completeness,  here is the view in the other direction.
Remember this is 5pm,  on JULY 1st  !!!

Hi Fester,  Those pictures say a lot,   :( :(     I have never disputed your numbers, and appreciate that there is a change happening, which you are seeing first hand,..... But you already know my thoughts on this ...........We can only hope that all those concerned get together and make a plan for the future, before we are left behind.

I'm certainly not disputing your impression on the pier, F, simply saying that's not the case elsewhere.

It does come down to differing perceptions based upon location. Mostyn Street was very busy, yet the pier on the same day was quiet.

Perhaps because Billy Lal's, Poundland and Pound Bakery are on Mostyn Street.

If every Kiosk on the pier was a mini branch of one of those, the Pier would collapse under the weight of hoards of visitors.

I saw the other day that Cafe Express now has a new name...

I stopped at the "Express" a couple of days ago and was amazed at the amount of business Pound Bakery were doing, .......No wonder the Express changed the frontage, and went more for a Cafe approach.

.... and today at 4pm!

Note the entirely deserted beach in the background, the fact that only a dog walker (a local?), and all the shops SHUT!

Even the 'Monkey Man' is no longer 'viable', because assuming he thrives on attention, there is no on here to see him!

Hopefully the 'Monkey Man' has been teleported to a distant galaxy never to return.
