Eden Project

On Monday we managed to get Hugo up early, so we could spend a few hours at Eden.
It was lovely, sunny & incredibly hot in the biomes...

100s of coins thrown into the waterfall!

We love Education Otherwise's Logo.
School Is Not Compulsory.  

We walked up to the Rainforest Lookout last year...

Baobab Smoothie with coconut milk & fresh mint - it was really good!

A bird feasting on papaya...

A cool breeze at the entrance to the rainforest biome!

Vegan strawberry sorbet

A chap having a massage in the Med biome...

The olive oil trail...

The stage is being prepared ready for the Eden Sessions.

A beautiful bee!

The vegan grub was also gluten free... Sime's piled up plate (of course).
We had an aubergine spiral thing which was just ok, new potatoes & salad... We found it all a bit dry really, so the bowl of leek & oatmeal gloop soup we shared, also got used as a sauce!

The mugs above the tables...

They provide jugs of water on each table, so you can just grab a mug.


A lovely day with our not so little chappy!

Hope you're having a good weekend.

Kay & Sime

Oh, wow, would I ever be in heaven there! It looks like such a wonderful time. What a gorgeous place.

do you use vegan and/or natural cleaning products in your holiday let cleaning? I'd love to see a blog post about your favourite cleaning methods and products if so!

Wow that looks great. I really must start writing down my bucket list. It is all in my head which is not very good at remembering.

I could quite happily live in the plantation house. It seems that only vegans make good vegan food, non vegans have an odd idea of what tastes good.

And it only costs us £5 each for a local annual pass, so we can go as often as we like - which is nice!

Hi Liz - Thanks for your comment. We've used Bio D products for many years: & at home we use lemon juice, bicarb, vinegar, borax & soda crystals.

Here's a blog from a few weeks ago:

Hi Susan - Eden is definitely worth a visit!

Kay :)
We would too! There's also a great bamboo house in the rainforest biome - which we'd be very happy with...

You're right about the food - it was just very bland!

Kay :)

What a cool place to visit!
Looks like you all had a really great day.
Happy Sunday!

It all looks just wonderful, I can't wait to go there myself. Such blue skies too!
Thanks for commenting with that book you suggested, I bet Dil and I would both enjoy that. I shall see if I can reserve it at our library.

Your £5 pass is a real bargain when an adult ticket costs £23. Though I'm glad to see that they offer a reduction to visitors arriving by public transport.
There are some lovely plants in your photos! And the famous strawberry sorbet too! I must go to the Eden Project one day!

Lovely photos. Glad you enjoyed your day out. I wouldn't mind visiting again if I lived nearer.

Ryton Organic Gardens is well worth a visit if you are ever near Coventry, but that's somewhere else I can't get to very often.

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.

Bye for now. …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
