Photo-a-day 190/365 Llandrillo Church

Llandrillo Church

The photo is of the church of Llandrillo in Rhos on Sea (Llandrillo yn Rhos).

Situated on the top of a hill, it's an old church. One famous person who is buried in the graveyard is Harold Lowe, hero of the Titanic.

According to Wikipedia, Rhos-on-Sea's greatest claim to fame is that, according to legend, Madog ap Owain Gwynedd, a Welsh prince of Gwynedd, sailed from here in 1170 and discovered America, over three hundred years before Christopher Columbus's famous voyage in 1492. This event is apparently recorded by a plaque on one of the properties on the sea-front, but I didn't notice it.

Everyone else is doing it...

I write like
Heleninwales. I do not actually write like Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Douglas Adams or Chuck Palahniuk, despite what this meme might say!

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I found that depending on what I pasted in, I got a wide variety of writers, none of whom I would actually say I resembled, most particularly I do not write like Chuck Palahniuk. I don't know where that came from!
