Agreed Mike, yes, I’ve been on the Pier a lot this last couple of weeks, but I can’t believe how quiet the rides are.
Now I realise why.

I noticed today pier was packed but you were lucky to see two kids on a ride , as we've said before fester folks haven't got a lot to spend when they get here ,drop the price more would go on the rides .

To be fair isn't it more to do with the average age of a pier dweller being closer to 80 than 8?
I rarely see young families in Llandudno, there isn't a lot here for them.

That's fair comment. Very few families with young kids around.

Yet, I see quite a crowd gathered in front of Punch and Judy several times a day?
Watching.... but not so much spending!

Paddle Steamer Waverley is due Llandudno Tuesday and Wednesday 28/29th.

Visit could be in doubt. She broke down with boiler problems yesterday on a cruise to Rothesay and after anchoring for 4 hours is now alongside in Greenock for repairs. Watch this space.

Report on BBC Scotland.

Waverley visit now looking interesting.

AIS shows her arriving Largs at 1827. Impossible for her to reach Liverpool in time for a cruise departing at 1000 hours tomorrow.

Destination has now been changed from Liverpool to Llandudno.

Good Luck.

Off the Isle of Arran..
About 170 miles to run to Llandudno
At current speed of about 14 knots she has 12 hours to run, so could be in Llandudno Bay tomorrow morning after 8am

As a child my parents took me to the Isle of Man on one of the day trip steamers. They seemed noticeably larger but then;  I was noticeably smaller.

Look up Maid of Mann Ian, one of the regulars on the Llandudno I.o.M. run.

I remember going there in 1968 but can't remember the name of the boat and I think that the cost was £1.50.

It was Mona's Isle, I believe.  That was the SS doing the Llandudno - Isle of Man run during the '50s and '60s.
