Having mannually raked the mussels up ( the traditional way of gathering the mussels) from the mussel beds in the estuary, they are then transported to the pontoon where they are sorted ready to be taken to the small cleaning plant on the quayside, which is the white building next to the tower on the quayside in the photo above. It is possible to buy the fresh mussels from here
This is the view out towards the estuary where the mussel beds are found. The Great Orme can be seen in the background to the right.
The coastal foot / cycle path follows the coast line all the way from Llandudno to Conwy and makes a really scenic walk.

This stall was also selling some lovely old gardening tools
This stall sells so many different types of seeds all in labled brown envelopes....... no mass produced packets to be seen. There are also all types of onion sets, potatoes and then veg plant and berry bushes
So much choice and such a lovely environment to be buying rather than the usual places
