Our final day in Cornwall was a wet one! Opening the curtains in the morning, we were greeted with pouring rain and a grey mist which surrounded the house, this meant we spent the majority of the day inside until the rain later cleared!

Once the showers had passed, we decided to take our final stroll down to Talland Bay. As it was a damp evening, we knew not many people would be at the beach so this was the perfect excuse to go!

As we were staying on a large estate there was a lot to see so we took a detour to admire the houses and their sea views. We soon came to a little wooden gate which allowed us to follow a narrow path down through the fields with a sea view every way we looked. Once we finally reached the beach, we sat and watched the waves roll in.



The tide was heading out which allowed us to scramble over all the rock pools to look for any local wildlife. My sister and her boyfriend soon came across a small crab which they later called ‘Crabby’. They carefully picked him up and noticed he was missing a pincer so when we were about to leave they found a sheltered rock pool for him to make his home!



 

After a couple of hours had passed, we decided to head back up to the house as the sun had started to set. We followed the track back up the hill through the fields of Ragwort, golden hues were cast which made the atmosphere feel warm and cosy.



 

Our holiday had now come to an end but being back by the Cornish Coast made me feel at home once again. Until next time Cornwall! I miss you already.

If you visit Cornwall frequently, you probably would have been to The Eden Project, or at least heard about it. If you are not familiar, The Eden Project started out as a large clay pit which was near the end of its economic life but, after years of planning and construction, the two Biomes were born. One houses the largest rainforest in captivity and the other is a Mediterranean sanctuary. But, before entering the buildings, you are guided through the gardens and are greeted by several large wildlife creatures. There are many dotted around the site but they are all made from environmentally friendly materials, which makes them even more unique!


 

But before our excitement began, we stopped for some food. There are many places on site, where you can eat, depending on what you fancy! Our favourite restaurant is the Med Terrace which is located in the heart of the Mediterranean biome. There is a wide range of choice from pasta and pizza to paella and pannacotta. But, we got there too late for lunch (amateur mistake) so, we decided to head down stairs to the Eden Kitchen where we ordered the Moroccan style meatballs which were served with lemon and tomato sauce, a bed of rice and feta cheese (the cheese won me over)!

 

With full stomachs, we started our rainforest journey. When the doors open, you are transformed into another world, with the help from stunning plants, stories behind the environment and of course, the weather. When you walk in, away from the dreary British weather, you are suddenly hit with humid and sticky heat. But what made our visit even more exciting this time was the Cornish weather. We were struck with thunderstorms, which we could hear incredibly loud during our walk around the biome - we all found ourselves questioning whether it was a part of the experience!

 


 

 

We then decided to go up on the Sky Walk, which takes you up to the top of the dome. I struggled to get my head around doing this and I had to pluck up a lot of courage. I don’t know whether I am scared of heights or falling but, this definitely tested my bravery. When you were walking up the stairs, you could see down to the floor below, this was the part that panicked me as I don’t even like going on piers because of the same reason! But, once I had made it up there, the 360-degree view was stunning – you felt on top of the world! Gripping onto the railings, I made it back down to the bottom and this is where our rainforest adventure ended.


 

We then went over to the Mediterranean biome, where you instantly feel as though you’ve got on a four-hour flight to Greece. The building replicas are realistic enough that if you said you were at The Eden Project; no one would believe you! The vibrancy of the dome is spectacular, with the variety of flowers that have been planted. They range from bright yellows, to ruby reds and dark plum purples.

 


 

If you get the chance to come down to Cornwall, I would recommend visiting The Eden Project as there is nothing quite like it - it is an experience and not just a day out!

Have you been to The Eden Project before?

Today was hot and yes, I am now sun burnt. I swear I am never fully prepared for any type of weather and that definitely proved itself today! It only reached 21 degrees but it honestly felt as though we were in the Mediterranean. To make the most of the glorious weather, we decided to head further round the bay to Polperro. I have visited and stayed in Polperro many times before so it was exciting for me to head back down memory lane.

Our journey started at Talland Bay, we picked up the South West Coastal Path (SWCP) up a steep hill past lots of wild flowers and onto a narrow cliff-top path. At one point we stepped over a stile to be greeted by a pristine horizon, where it was hard to tell where the sea finished and the sky started. 

 



 

We continued down the path for a mile and we reached Polperro harbour. Polperro itself always reminds me of a toy town, it almost doesn’t look real. The cottages are positioned up in the cliffs which overlook the water, this gives a perfect mix of countryside and seascape. They all work well with the surrounding properties as everything has its own place. Flower boxes are a common sighting around the town, with many blooming on the windowsills, which bring a vibrancy to the white walls.

 


 

When admiring the various boats in the harbour, we were suddenly drawn to two navy ribs (complete with mounted guns!) getting ready to set off on their journey. They started up the motors and gradually navigated their way out of the harbour walls and into the distance. It was amazing to watch these brave gentlemen, get ready to do a job to protect us as a country - it was personally something I had never witnessed before! 


After all that excitement, we made our way around the town and decided on where we wanted to eat. As seagulls are a big issue when it comes to being by the sea, we didn’t want to sit anywhere where we would be attacked by low flying birds!  We soon found a little café, situated on the water’s edge. We decided on Cornish pasties as you can’t travel down to the West Country and not have a pasty! 

 

Cooled down and refuelled, we made our way back to Talland Bay where we stripped off and had a paddle/swim in the sea. We stayed at the beach for a couple of hours and soaked in the sun, had some more ice cream and then packed up our beach towels and headed home.

 

Even though I am now looking like a lobster, I had such a fun sunshine day! Just remember guys, always wear sun cream and don’t be stupid like me.

Hope you all had a good Monday!
