October 2004

At the end of October, we stayed in the UK for a weekend trip to Cornwall in the southwest of England.Again, we went with a couple of friends.It was Miffy and Steve in their pea-green-mean-machine.

 

The main attractions in Cornwall are the gorgeous coastlines, fishing villages and the Eden Project.Itís about a 5.5 hour drive to get there from London, so we set out one Friday evening after work and arrived very late that night.

 

We stayed in a B&B in a cool little fishing village, Polperro.Itís still a working fishing village, very quaint and friendly.It still had a few sand bags lying around following the flooding that had occurred there a few weeks earlier.

A highlight of the area is the Eden Project.Located in the depression of an old quarry it consists of a series of biospheres effectively acting as large climate controlled green-houses with plants from all over the world.One section has a tropical climate, the other more Mediterranean.

 

 

The biospheres of the tropical section.The Mediterranean biospheres are in the bottom right of the picture.
