A cracking day weatherwise in N. Wales, too frosty for cycling, so, another foray into my surroundings (don't be afraid to do local, there is always somebody who will like and do the walks), another for clearing heads, losing a few pounds, one steep decent from Penmaen Head, which, for the faint hearted can be avoided by staying on main road to Wynne Gardens, turning right down to Promenade.
