Today we explored Fowey, a charming and extremely picturesque medieval town in Cornwall. While some of us spent the day visiting a mansion and castle, most of us spent the morning at the Eden Project. In the afternoon, we either strolled in the Lost Gardens of Heligan or walked in the hilly countryside surrounding the harbor.

The fog silently rolled in overnight, and early risers awoke to a quiet and very still morning. As we set off on our bus tours and ventured the length and breadth of these stunning Islands, the Shetlands became increasingly ethereal in appearance. At the southernmost end of Shetland, we visited Sumburgh Head and its fabulous cliffs of seabirds, owned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Here we got super close to puffins, the stars of the show. Later in the morning, we headed to Jarlshof, a prehistoric and Norse settlement to discover 4,000 years of Shetland’s history.
