Last weekend we decided to head to the Eden Project to have a go on their ice skating rink. Although I’ve been to the Eden Project lots (mainly to see the fantastic Eden Sessions), I’ve never been ice skating there. In fact, I’ve never actually been ice skating. Over the winter, they have their ice skating rink in the same area which they hold their Eden sessions during the summer. Once you’ve paid the main entrance fee, 40 minutes…

  Kennal Vale is a gorgeous piece of Cornish woodland made even better by a dramatic river running through and deep undergrowth. Throughout the reserve the remains of a granite gunpowder mill can be seen, scattered along the wooded slopes. It’s a really fantastic place to go for a wander and to take some photos, so much so that most of the people that you see at Kennal Vale either have a camera or a dog. On a particularly cold…

  We awoke for our final day in London with a spring in our steps and bounced down to breakfast. When the waitress asked us for any extras we both opted for the waffles, which were amazing! We had the return journey booked for about 4 o’clock but that hadn’t stopped us planning the day packed to the rafters with cool activities. Once we had feasted again on Park Plaza’s awesome breakfast we returned to the room and commenced repacking…

  A few days before Christmas I went on a short trip North of the Cornish border and up to the Big Smoke (London). This was to soak up the Christmas atmosphere, do some sightseeing and a little bit of last minute present shopping. I’ll start at the beginning: The Journey To London The first part of the Journey I did solo and travelled up from Cornwall to Newton Abbot on the train. It was the Saturday before Christmas and…

  We went down to view the 51st Mousehole Lights tonight. A lovely little festive roadtrip in the van to gaze at the brilliant displays! I wont waffle on too much as I took the camera and tripod down so have managed to take some half decent photographs. Enjoy: P.S. For more information on the lights click here.

  It’s been raining non stop this week and I’ve now declared that it’s officially winter. Some people might say that rain and cold is bad weather; This isn’t true though; there is no such thing as bad weather – just bad clothing. To avoid bad clothing you need to invest in a decent pair of wellies and a good coat. Once you’ve got those, then who cares if it’s tipping it down. I’ve recently tackled my wet weather footwear…

    With the clocks now set back the light is normally long gone by the time I get back from work, team this up with weather that is only good for ducks and you’ve got the possibility of some boring evenings in. Throughout the summer my friends and I would spend our evenings in or by the water, adventuring, cycling or enjoying the beach; it’s sad to think that we’ve got a long few months before we can get…

  The weather has been mighty cold the last couple of months and I’ve been making the most of it by capturing the freezing mornings with my camera. It’s been so chilly in fact that down by a local river, icicles have been forming from splashes the water makes on it’s way down the valley and out to sea. I enjoy a brisk morning as much as the next man but after a while crouched on the cold ground, trying…

  There is no getting around it, at this time of year it’s pretty chilly in the water. However as with most things there is an upside, the waves can be be better and quieter. So it really is swings and roundabouts! To get over the chillyness I always glove, hood and bootie up in the winter. My old pair of booties have done a fantastic job over the last few years but unfortunately I’ve had to retire them. They’ve…

  I don’t know if you are aware but its been kinda rainy recently! I’ve been getting a tad annoyed about getting drenched whilst walking the dog out in the countryside. I decided to purchase a proper mans outdoors hat in the form of this soft brown leather Australian style bush hat from Wombat Leather. It arrived in one of those posh draw string bags that I’ve only ever seen things like my girlfriends designer handbags stored in. This added…
