Up bright and early with pukus (tummies) full of complimentary breakfast, we were off again.
First stop, for morning tea, was Plymouth. Then off to the place a couple of us had been looking forward to for a long time:
The Eden Project is amazing, reassuring, and inspiring. You have to admire the dedication and ability it takes to turn a clay quarry into an oasis capable of growing pretty much anything. It’s also reassuring that, with the same amount of effort and forethought, we all have this ability; as for inspiring: we’ve taken home a heap of ideas to try out our part of the planet.
It’s a big business now and I did wonder how many compromises had to be made to get the message out, and whether the message is sometimes lost in the hype, but we loved the energy and passion – and wonderful ideas.
Then it was off to St Just and our home for the next two days.
