Cornwall - Part One

School is OUT for summer!  But I'm not going to post about the academic year coming to a close - I'm going to write about our *gorgeous* four days in Cornwall!  We couldn't have asked for a better few days - it was the perfect end to B's holiday and a even better start to mine!

We were staying in Bude, right near the coast.  The view was amazing, although the weather wasn't exactly agreeable on our first afternoon and evening.

B decided he wanted to give surfing a go, so on the last day he made sure I was wrapped up on the beach with a cup of tea and hit the waves.  He was pretty good at staying on the board - I'm not sure I could have done that well!

We were unsure of the weather, so on day two we decided to head to the Eden Project in St Austell in order to make the most of the potentially wet typically English day. We went the last time we were in Cornwall (when we were engaged!) and fell in love with the place!  The bio-domes were steamy as instead of rain it was gorgeous sunshine, but unfortunately that meant that the top viewing deck was too hot (50 degrees Celsius!!).  

We enjoyed the outdoor gardens just as much as the domes -  I really liked the lavender fields (not because it reminded me of Norfolk  though!).

He spent ages in their garden with different types of vegetables from all around the globe.  I think he got a couple of shots for inspiration when we finally get a garden of our own.

B loved the plants (gardener at heart) and I loved the FOOD!   One of my favourite parts about the Eden Project is that the food they serve comes directly from their gardens.  You can even buy some of the plants!

It's hard to believe we were last there two years ago - so much has happened since then.  Moving in, marriage, finishing Med school...  Couldn't hope to spend it with a better man!
