Thursday Thirteen: Cornwall Vacation

March 11, 2010

I’ve officially booked our lodgings for our summer vacation in Cornwall, England.  Here are some of the things we will do while we are there.

  1. Go to the Seal Sanctuary, because Sophia will be all about that.
  2. Visit the (admittedly tourist trap) Land’s End, the westernmost point of England.
  3. Wander the ruins of Tintagel Castle.
  4. Go to Goonhilly Downs, where there is both a wind farm and a satellite earth station.  Science stuff for Dan.  I just like saying Goonhilly.   😉
  5. Meander the narrow streets of Port Isaac, the town that inspired this vacation (as seen on the British television series “Doc Martin.”
  6. Visit the Eden Project.  It’s considered a must-see.
  7. Explore St. Michael’s Mount (hopefully crossing on foot at low tide).
  8. Cruise to the Isles of Scilly.
  9. Bodmin Moor and Dozmary Pool.
  10. Eat a Cornish pasty.
  11. Visit Cotehele House.
  12. Stroll along the Coast Path.
  13. … and drive on the left side of the road!


  1. I have always wanted to visit England. I have to say I’m a little jealous.

  2. Land’s End is a tourist trap? That explains a few things.

  3. I would love to visit Tintagel Castle. I could never drive in England. It’s a good thing they have the Look Left signs at the crosswalks.

  4. Sounds fabulous! You’ll have a great time…I’ll live vicariously via the scrapbook…:-)

  5. CRUISEEEEEEEEEE me tooooooooo!!!

    Down Down and Dump

  6. that sounds like a totally awesome trip!
