We've had a lovely holiday in my favourite place, Cornwall.
While we were staying there this time, I wanted to visit the Eden Project, I've never been before. The biodomes were far bigger than I imagined. Their natural forms fit beautifully into the landscape.
This Peruvian wall painting intrigued me. It was inside the rain forest dome along with the words below.
Make of that what you will.
I liked the pattern inside this tree trunk, nature knows how to make the best shapes doesn't it?
I loved the beautiful yellow prairie plants. What lovely shapes they make against the dark interior of the hut.♥♥♥
Eve' was there too but I didn't notice her. I'll have to go again and see all the things I missed the first time!
From St Ives I've often noticed in the distance the lighthouse of Godrevy. The lighthouse is on a little island and in all these years I've never been to this part of the coast. I discovered it is stunning.
You can see St Ives across the bay from here. You'll need strong binoculars to see it properly though! It was an odd feeling seeing my familiar St Ives from such a different viewpoint.
Walking up along the coastpath, there were a few people looking over the side of the cliff. I thought they were just looking to see how high up they were or maybe watching sea birds but to my surprise there were actually hundreds of seals sunbathing on the beach below!
An amazing sight!
This ends in a sad tale though because using the binoculars we could see that one of the seals had recently given birth. The baby looked dead, so very sad. I'm sure this must happen all the time, it's the way of nature isn't it? There must also be lots of healthy ones that survive because I'm not sure if I've ever seen so many seals in one place, they must be doing ok on the whole.
The final evening we met up with Middle Daughter and her partner who live in Cornwall. Her favourite place is Perranporth and it also so happens to be my favourite place to watch the sun go down.
