Made a quick drive to Bethesda for a local produce market. The day started out as cloudy with light sprinkles and rain chances were at 90 percent, but the rain had stopped by the time we arrived. At the market, about eight vendors had their wares displayed.
I came away with lemon curd, onion marmalade, fresh Stilton goat cheese and a handmade tea cosy.
For the rest of the day, we decided to leave the car at home and take the bus to Conwy.
We stepped into a few shops and then went to Plas Mawr. Plas Mawr is considered the finest surviving town house of the Elizabethan era to be found anywhere in Britain. It was fascinating. Some of the furnishings are actually original and great effort was apparent in the authentic look of the home.
The guided tour and detail on water use and medieval medicine certainly took the romance out of the period. The attention to detail made this one of the best historical houses I’ve visited.
Then it was time to try the scotch eggs. We bought half pints of beer and sat on the water front enjoying the hard boiled eggs wrapped in sausage and covered with a crust of bread crumbs.
Last was the walk on the wall that surrounds the city.
We have no complaints about the weather. The rain always seems to clear out when we need it to and you can actually see your shadow.
