One of the walkways towards to biomes. After lunch we decided not to visit the tropical biome but to go into the Mediterranean one, where there was a lovely display of tulips.
Sorry, wonky photo!
After our brief visit we went on to Charlestown near St Austell. There used to be more tall boats here but not many now. Still a nice place to go, though .
A bit of a miserable day but as you can see from my Instagram feed we managed item 7. We also did item 3 and had a Cornish Pasty for lunch but nothing much else! We did however visit the museum and I saw these rather intriguing metal stencils used to mark barrels of pilchards, which used to fished there.
More views of Looe at low tide.
Going back home on Good Friday
We visited Cowslip Workshops in Launceston, where there was an exhibition (more details on their website) as there was a request not to put photos on social media, but it was really good. The shop is also fabulous and I spent quite a bit to add to my stash.
After that we head for Cotehele an NT property near Saltash. With a house, a quay down by he River Tamar and a further walk to the mill, so a really big estate where you can walk your feet off!
In the house was a whole cloth quilt which I could not resist taking a photo of without flash.
And another silk patchwork quilt, made with silk patches, which has to be covered with a tulle net as the silk has worn away. You can see that some patches were still intact and the unusual shapes of the patchwork.
I think we'll be going back again soon.
