Conwy Seed Fair

Lady with plants

While at home i always get swept up into what my mum is doing and at the weekend that was going into Conwy to buy plants.
Crowds in Conwy

Conwy is one of the most gorgeous towns you can imagine, it has a castle and some of the walls still surround part of the town, its so picturesque.
Seed fair stalls, Conwy

Conwy plays host to a seed fair once a year. this is an oppertunity for local people and crafts people from further afield and sell their wares. There are alot of plants stalls but also various produce stalls.

Walking around amongst the stalls were three men dressed in traditional costumes, they eached carried a different bird of pray. They looked fantastic and the birds were beautiful.

Monday the 28th of March

Monday morning 

written by Elaine's Daughter

Looking towards the great orme
This morning i was greeted by the sunshine so decided to head down to West shore for a quick walk. Although the breeze was a little chilly the sun made up for that and i was plently warm enough in just a jumper. Its so nice having such a pretty beach just 7 minutes walk away from where we live. 

plenty of rock pools to explore

the view towards Conwy

really clear water
the walk was super, i went to deganwy and back with the sun on my face the whole time. The water is so clear at the moment its really amazing. 
If you are in Llandudno and would like tide information it can be found here and if you would like details about wind conditions and sea temperatures they can be found here. The second website i found today and its great, its aimed at kite and wind surfers and that is what west shore is best for. Well water sports and walking oh and the water is very clean so in summer months swimming is also possible.
