At long last I've finished presenting images from Gran Canaria, and lovely though the Canary Islands are I'm certainly glad to be back in beautiful North Wales for today's photos here at goHOWiE.com.

These two pictures of the Conwy estuary were taken last July on the flanks of the Great Orme at the West Shore, Llandudno, which just goes to show how far behind I am with processing!

To my mind, the less developed north coast of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands is much more interesting than the touristic south, so my wife Liz and I spent most of our holiday week exploring this side of the island.

One of our favourite places on the north coast must be Puerto de Las Nieves, with various images from the town shown here.
