I'm shocked Steve    :o      A great quizzer like you and I bet you fell at the first fence too     ;)

I hope Hammy can improve on our scores?

It's the question setters that should be in the dunce's corner - last two questions contradict themselves (IMHO).

You're correct DVT the question setters should be in the dunce's corner.     Can anyone get 10 out of 10 in this quiz?   That's the first time around I mean

Wow, I got 3/10 on that one but felt that there were some 'errors' in the questions. Think i need to practice some more sand castle building!

You've got nothing to worry about Hammy, join the club as those questions were really duff.     I bet you, like me didn't even get the first question correct
I won't spoil it by giving the answer to Q9 which was:-

9. Which beach on the Isle of Anglesey is connected to the mystical tale of Saint Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers?

St Dwynwen's beach is in Newborough on the west coast of Anglesey but the answer that the Daily Post said is correct is on the East coast of the island and nowhere near Newborough      :o

I thought the beach huts were on Abersoch beach, the only one at llandudno being Jason's Punch and Judy 'hut'.

I'm old enough to remember the last beach huts on the North Shore but that was in the early 1950's and I got the first answer wrong as I'm sure everyone else did.
You're spot on with the correct answer of Abersoch Hammy where one of those colourful beach huts went on the market at a staggering price of about 250K     :o
Did you answer question 9 corectly?       That answer was also a duff one as Lligwy Beach is near Moelfre on the opposite side of Anglesey

Think Q9 was one  of my guesses as I was losing patience by then!

If it's any consolation Hammy,  none of the 4 answers are correct.    Although Cable Bay,  Rhosneigr and Porth Dafarch are on the western side of Anglesey they are nowhere near Llanddwyn Island.     Lligwy Beach is also miles away on the eastern coast
The correct answer would be Llanddwyn Beach
The Daily Post reporter needs to get his facts right
