  1. I have been enjoying this throughout. Great project. You are getting close to my childhood haunts on the North Wales coast so I am looking forward to your take on them. But perhaps even more to my favourite bits of coastline in Scotland.

    • Thanks very much. North Wales’ coast towns can generate strong and sometimes negative opinions that I found not to be the case. I put it down to many changes in the last decade and the fact some people enjoy putting down places they have never visited!

    Gorgeous! You’ve reached ‘my Wales’. I’ve been looking forward to this and I’m not disappointed. Love seeing some if my favourite places through your lens. Can’t wait til you reach Conwy – my favourite castle.

    Hi Quintin,
    The title on the last picture is the same as on an earlier one. I think that you were on Bangor Pier there.
    I have really enjoyed, and found it inspiring, following your trip so far. Looking forward to Anglesey.
    Regards,
    Robin

    • Thanks for spotting the typo. It is indeed Bangor Pier, now corrected. I’m not including islands on my journey as there are hundreds around Britain so Anglesey will have to wait till another day.
