Capital adventure

Another day another roll of film used.  We hadn't been to London in a month and were a bit tired of walking around the countryside so hopped on the train last Saturday.

We started off with a wander around Borough and Jubilee Market.  It was so much busier than the last time we went but was great all the same.  We're currently doing a meat free challenge and really struggled to find tasty vegetarian lunch options.  In the end I went for a wild mushroom pie only to find when I took my first bite that it was chicken and leek! 

Next we found ourselves in the City of London admiring the retro buildings around the Barbican made pretty by everyone's green fingers!

We then ended up at Liverpool St Station and wandered up Shoreditch High St to Hoxton where we saw old meeting new by way of the modern tall buildings shooting out of the backdrop from a traditional street.

After that we went to a very cool museum which I'll blog about once I've sorted out all the pictures I took!

Porthmeor beach

My favourite kind of visit to the beach is when it's a cool sunny day so that I can enjoy the space and stroll along the coast letting my feet breath in the water.

Our visit to Porthmeor beach in St Ives was just that kind of day.  We had a look around the Tate gallery and then walked around the beach watching all the dogs enjoy the beach just as much as us.

Our holiday cottage

We made our way down the twisting narrow streets to an old fisherman's cottage which very much had all the original features and wasn't built for a couple of tall people!

Beyond the impractical features of the cottage was a lovely place with stunning views.

Here are a few snaps of the cottage and one sunny breakfast we had while we were there.

Eden Project part 3

Next in the Eden Project series...(find part 1 and part 2)

It was ten degrees outside and given we were dressed for that it was quite uncomfortable in the 30 degree Rainforest Biome. Beneath my woolen jumper I had quite a glitzy vest top but I had no choice to walk around dressed to impressed! I would show you the pictures but I just can't my hair took on the Monica from Friends style giving the new hubby much to laugh about.

Meanwhile there was much prettiness...

There is so much of our honeymoon left to blog I'm going to integrate lots of pretty Eden Project posts within all of this so I hope you all enjoy the ride!

Before going to our cottage in St Ives we stopped off at Padstow.  It's a really lovely place with lots to do nearby I would like to go back and explore in more detail one day.
