The North Wales coast boasts some lovely, quaint seaside towns, of which Llanfairfechan is a prime example.
This sleepy gem has some low-key attractions but has basically remained stuck in time for the past few decades.
Llanfairfechan is one of my Liz's and my favourite spots for a quiet afternoon's stroll along the beach and nature reserve, but I also appreciate this place from a photographic point of view.
There are some lovely old architectural gems to be found along the beach and promenade, like these old cast iron groynes and wooden planks, installed in times gone by in an attempt to stop longshore drift.
I don't know how sucessful the groynes and planks were at protecting the coastline, but they certainly succeed in adding inerest to a composotion.
