I have heard the week end sailings are cancelled as well as at least the Monday one next week. Engine trouble apparently.

Were my eyes deceiving me last week, or has the bouncy slide on the pier that used to be "2.50 and slide as long as you like" (ok maybe it went up to 3, not sure) now "3 tokens for 3 goes" - and each token is 1. So 3 for 3 goes on a slide, when it used to get you half an hour or until you got bored.

I know the owner wnats to get money in.. but c'mon! Also noticed half the huts had no tenants.. i guess that's a sign of his rent charges?

Surely having all the 'huts' occupied at a lower rent is better than having them sitting empty at a higher rent? Shame he doesn't take the chance to refurbish them and restore features like the stained glass windows.

The bouncy castle, I think you'll find, is now 3 tokens, (I.e. 3)... for five minutes!
Just enough time for the child to gets shoes off.

The Balmoral was in a position to set sail this afternoon from the end of the pier.

When it returned, at around 1.30pm, the tide was incredibly low.
I wasn't aware that the boat could even berth in such shallow water.

When I was by the pier in Menai Bridge today at about 12.30 pm I met an old works colleague who had booked a trip on the Balmoral  today.    It was booked for 2,00 pm and was from Menai Bridge to Red Wharf Bay and back but it looks like the Balmoral trip from Menai Bridge must have been late or cancelled altogether.

Sorry, my mistake... I was at the pier twice today.
It was LEAVING Llandudno at about 1.30pm and the tide was high.

When it returned, at an extreme low tide, it was about 4.30pm... some 20 minutes after I'd been thrown out of Sport Direct!

Hugo, re Menai Bridge,the leaflet detailing extra sailings I picked up says the 2pm departure round Red Wharf Bay was from Llandudno.

The tide was one of the lowest I have seen, even the outfall pipe opposite the Washington was exposed at about 4.30pm

It was the friend I spoke to that said that it was going to Red Wharf Bay and around Puffin Island.     Anyway I hope she had a nice sail on the Balmoral wherever it was going to

I got thrown out because it was closed.... and no one told me!
All the other shops around there were open til 5pm I think, so I'm in there at 4pm.
I thought it was a bit quiet, but put that down to the nice weather outside.

15 mins later, I'm merrily mincing around with a few t shirts and stuff to try on.... when an assistant said. 'What are you still doing in here?  We closed at 4pm, and I've been cashing up'

Oh, right... I'll leave these things here then.
So, I left the store, past a gaggle of annoyed looking employees in the doorway, all with arms folded... they couldn't wait to get me out.   But one of them might have said earlier??
