We went to dinner together which was lovely (well except for the plastic bag remnants in my pate!!) & then had a walk along the headland in the bracing sea breeze.
Saturday saw us renting a car & driving off to find Eden, well the Eden Project at least. I think I did very well on the driving front & did not need to use the useless GPS thingy. Thank goodness for the excellent signage here in the UK.
|Full size sculpture made from driftwood at the entrance|
|This is a great section where they show the plant & the herbal remedy|
We were very lucky that we were there at the same time as half term holiday which meant they had some additional exhibitions - OWLS!!! Oh my I want one!!! Or lots!!
|Got to pat this one & had to be restrained from taking her home!!|
|This little guy was just as interested in us as we were of him.|
|These are the Biomes - super view of the future??|
|Really love these plants but no idea what they are?? Claire???|
Sunday saw us having coffee on the seafront in a bracing force ten gale & laughing at the determination of the Brits to enjoy the sea no matter the weather. Some blokes took it too overachiever status by wearing shorts.
The Prince & I followed this lovely session with a walk around the headland & some wandering around the Barbican area. Lots of lovely little shops & amazing original architecture & laneways. These murals are by a renowned local artist.
