"Best when chilled (as indeed we all are)."

I like it when my water has a sense of humor.

The last day in Cornwall, before returning to London. A visit to Tintagel, and the ruins of 'King Arthur's Castle'.

Western Cornwall is thick with old tin and copper mines. We spent a day near the town of St. Just looking for Ross Poldark.

St. Michael's Mount, near Penzance. At high tide reachable only by boat, but at low tide a causeway emerges as if by magic, providing a footpath to the island. The sister of Mont-Saint-Michel in France, the island has been the private home of the St. Aubyn family since the 17th century.

It doesn't get much more English: a classic Ploughman's lunch, and a pint of local beer.

Our group enjoyed a private tour of the gardens at Tregothnan, a historic estate in Cornwall that is the first to grown tea in England.

A typical road in rural Cornwall. No, this is not a one-way road. Quick reflexes and good snap-decision making are essential (along with restraint in using the throttle).

A spectacular day spent exploring the Eden Project, near St. Austell, in Cornwall. They took a worn out China clay mine, and turned it in to a lush botanical garden. The two three-domed biomes house a tropical environment, and a Mediterranean climate, and the outdoor areas contain local Cornwall flora, as well as many other northern plants.

Enjoyed – if that's the right word – a wet and windy day in Dartmoor National Park. Here, taking a look at the medieval clapper bridge near Postbridge.
