Transition in the market - all rather soggy because of the mornings rain. Some jazz records but nothing to interest me. Hazel stayed to help out Beth Barlow with some wire stripping. I wandered round the charity shops and popped into the Plaza to see the very nice old postcards of Northwich and area in the foyer. A motley group of musicians on stage playing Fleetwood Mac's "Albatross" as I wondered round. I was reminded of that Monty Python sketch of John Cleese done up like a cinema usherette. I half expected him to appear from the musty gloom!

Plas Newydd with it's lovely Rex Whistler room with massive mural, love letters and childhood drawings. Sad that his love for the Marquis's daughter was unrequited and he died young in the 2nd world war. Holyhead has a few charity shops but we didnt find much. On the way home we stopped off at Llandudno, another of our favourite places, for toasted tea cakes and more junk hunting. Hazel found some blue and white Lambeth jugs for a quid each ( slightly crazed ). Also got some old postcards from the collectors shop. Open exhibition on at the Oriel Mostyn - an interesting mixture as always.

Frodsham after dropping Archie off at Sainsburys. Marveled at the olde worlde 17th century buildings but only managed to take photos of the electricity sub station on the Sandstone Trail which seemed more relevant somehow?! Not many bargains to be had though Hazel was tempted by the eye glass thingy in Roy's Relics. Roy was very amiable and told me all about his massive record collection and pointed us at the bakers opposite when we asked if he knew any good eateries. It turned out they did a very nice breakfast and sold delicious wholemeal bread ( expensive though at £3.50 a loaf!) Then to Lady Hayes antique emporium for a wander, but their prices have shot up over the years so we didn't buy anything. Home for lunch.
