The Eden Project

Wednesday 16th January 2019

The weather looked bright and sunny this morning, so I thought I would attempt a geocache a little bit further afield as there seemed very  little chance of getting wet.  Or so I thought…….!

As I neared the cache’s location I looked back to where I had just walked from and it didn’t look good – it seemed very likely that I was going to get soaked…………….

Well, I had come this far and it was only a little bit further to the end of the headland so I decided that I might just as well go for it…………….

So all I have to do now is climb down from these rocks, and there hidden amongst the nooks and crannies I will find the treasure……………well, a Tupperware container with a log book in!  It must look odd to anyone watching, but it does add a bit of fun to a walk and certainly takes you to places you might not normally venture to!

Well thats another cache to add to my total, just as well because here comes the rain!!

The Eden Project is a great place to visit when it’s raining………..it’s also lovely when it’s not!  It didn’t look too far on the map, but when you are driving down narrow lanes everything takes a lot longer, so I decided I would have to pay for the ferry on the return trip and save half an hour!

We met up with a friend of ours that works there, Phillip.  He is the son of Kevin and Val, with whom we have enjoyed many adventures over the last few years, many of which have appeared in previous editions of this blog!

It was great to see the array of colours outside of the biodomes…………..

I am going to have to complain to the trades descriptions…………they didn’t have any pork and beef!

And it was great to feel the warmth inside the domes, mind you when the simulation of how clouds are made shot up loads of steam, it did take Jane by surprise!  Not another ‘bad hair’ day!!!

It was very quiet and with the exception of a few school parties we virtually had the place to ourselves.

There is so much to see and we must have walked quite a few miles as we explored around.

This photo was taken of a statue just outside the domes and I thought I would experiment with some different exposures and colours …….hope you like the effect!

    I imagine The Eden Project is a good place to visit in winter. We went on a warm late Spring day, and were a bot disappointed. I think part of it had to do with the fact that so much wasn’t new to us, having seen bananas, coffee and lots of other exotic plants growing in the wild already.
