We spent the night in Llandudno, where I managed to find the most delicious vegan Shepherd's Pie at a pub in the town called The Cottage Loaf. (Do you know how long it's been since I've eaten cottage pie? And there was so much of it I couldn't even made room for dessert which is saying a lot).
Our hotel was right on the promenade with a gorgeous views of the sea, the mountains and the pretty pastel Victorian buildings lined up along the seafront. We caught the sunset, and I got up early (because mom brain is forever, even if your kid isn't around) and caught the sunrise on the pebble beach before taking the Marine Drive around the Great Orne.
It was a perfect little break, in such a wonderful spot only a couple of hours drive from where we live. I can't wait to go back.
