London and Porcupine Tree

Quick trip down to London in 2 hours on the East Coast Main Line. Great food and wine on the way down then a little sight seeing before heading over in the evening to the Indigo club at the 02 Millenium dome. It was fun approaching the dome using the Thames clippers. The main reason for the trip was of for Porcupine Trees only UK concert of the year and what an exceptional gig it was.The following day lunch in the nice restaurant in the Sainsbury wing of the National Gallery (great food but really lousy service. A smooth trip back again in 2 hours flat. Virgin Trains take note, your West Coast route is becoming a farce.

Stopped off at the National Heritage site/car park that is Stonehenge.. Actually plans are afoot to move the main roads underground and create vast new visitors centers a respectable distance away that may give the site the respect it deserves. Lovely weather again but a long drive back. Catering consisted of a cornish pasty in the car park.

Cot Valley Cornwall

Superb weather for a full week in Cornwall, who would have thought... Fantastic food in restaurants where the fish is so fresh it was dropped off the same morning from the local harbour... An absolute dream of a Holiday...

The Cot valley is about as far west as you can go, about 5 miles from Lands End near the town of St Just its a lovely little isolated place with three or 4 houses down a lane. One of these has a bungalow which can be rented out and its here we took ourselves for a week in September. As you can probably guess from the first paragraph we enjoyed it rather a lot.

Here's a link to many more pictures which Jackie has labelled up.
