St Austell brewery tour

AS it was raining on our visit to Cornwall we retreated to the St Austell brewery for lunch followed by a brewery tour, which of course included some sampling of various beers, which Neil enjoyed greatly.DSC03260

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and made the tour a real pleasure even for me who doesn’t drink beer.DSC03262

Neil was very happy and bought a case of Proper Black!!DSC03265

Visit to The Eden Project in Cornwall

Last week we went down to Cornwall for a few days to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary (25 years).  The main reason for choosing Cornwall was to visit the Eden Project, which was something I had wanted to do for ages.

Upon leaving the car parks and walking down through the entrance the first thing that hits you is the view of the Biomes.  They are big and really impressive.DSC03203

We headed straight for the Rainforest Biome. DSC03208

It was humid and full of mature trees and plants.  I particularly liked the red flowers of the Pineapple Ginger.DSC03211

We walked up to the higher paths of the canopy. DSC03215

We crossed the rope bridge but it was a bit wobbly!DSC03213

After leaving the Rainforest Biome we headed for the Mediterranean Biome.  I liked the terracotta pots of flowers.DSC03218

And some beautiful Lillies.DSC03219

I posed by some pink Bougainvillia.DSC03221

There were some deep russet flowers in the Australian section.DSC03222

Outside were some lovely flower beds and I spotted a bee in a scabia.DSC03225

A large wicker bee took us by surprise.DSC03206

But then we spotted  a metal butterfly.DSC03244

The deep purple poppies were really gorgeous.DSC03238

For an extra £30 you can have a go on the zip wire but that’s not for me!.DSC03245

We were also lucky with the weather in that it was a warm day and we managed to escape the rain.

The Eden project has many different areas to see and is well worth a visit.
