Visiting Eden - Cornwall Holiday Part Three

The animal feeding was abandoned after the guinea pigs on Wednesday morning as there was a very sudden and rather heavy downpour.  We had planned on going to the Eden Project that day too and thought we would still go as planned because at least there would be places to take shelter should the rain continue.  As it turned out the day wasn't too bad, there was one or two showers but they soon passed.

The walk down to Eden after parking is about a mile but all along the grass verges are planted with wild flowers that looked lovely even though they are now almost finished flowering


It was very busy, I think everyone had the same idea, not a day for the beach, but somewhere you can dodge the showers.











I think Oliver had a good time, he does like plants and was keen to go and visit the plant shop later and buy a new cactus to add to his collection.  We both bought on of the succulents too.

We did have a great find....this little fella.


That's Marks finger, so you can see how tiny the little frog is.

 Some of the other plants I enjoyed seeing.




I loved all the sunflowers and black eyed susan




One of the things Oliver had asked to do was have fish and chips at the beach and watch the sunset, so on the way back we visited Constantine Bay, stopping off on the way to buy fish and chips.



We got back around 10pm, so it was a long day, but a good one.

It's quite a few years now since we visited The Eden Project, I think there must be quite a few changes now, it's so interesting and so much to see. They have those little tree frogs in the Caribbean, they make such a noise at night. Glad Oliver got to see his sunset, it's quite magical to watch from the beach with the sound of the waves lapping on the sand.
