Peter Pan and Wendy

(viewed 450 times)
Book Twenty Eight.

At first, the book made me frown and smile at the same time. It’s rather unique and took a while to get my head around. The narrative style reminded me a lot of The Hobbit—it is distinctly third person omniscient, and i loved the playful way that was written. What made me frown, initially, was how ordinary the book made such obviously extraordinary things. The fantasy aspects of the book are not made to seem fantastical—they simply are.

This edition also includes illustrations by Robert Ingpen which are, in a word, beautiful. They aren’t just there to fill pages, they really help bring the story to life and i spent just as long on the illustrated pages as i did on a page of text.

To be honest, i didn’t expect to like this book as much as i did, but i’m very pleased i liked it so much. The end made me sad, and happy.

Cornwall: Eden Project: Mediterranean Biome

1. We got inside just before it got overcast and threw it down. Excellent timing.

2. Waiting for food.

5. The grapes go from on the vine to in the bottle... to in my mouth.

6. A fight broke out amongst the grapes.

7. Then things got really weird.

8. We also went on the zip wire, where i couldn't take photos, so the best is this wrist band i got. Suffice it to say it was the best part of the day.

Cornwall: Eden Project: Outdoor Biome

Pretty.

#3 freaked me out a bit. It seemed a showy imitation of The Lost Gardens' Mud Maid...

Cornwall: Mevagissey to Fowey Ferry

It was wet, but fun.

Cornwall: The Lost Gardens of Heligan: Part Two

The fruit/veg/flower gardens were possibly the best thing about The Lost Gardens of Heligan ♥

1. The first greenhouse we saw.

2. A very large pumpkin.

3. Erm...

4. The potting shed.

5. The greenhouses were bloody gorgeous.

6,7&8. Flower Garden.

Cornwall: The Lost Gardens of Heligan: Part One

1. Giant's Head

2. Mud Maid

3-8. All taken in the 'Jungle'!

Cornwall: Crosscombe

Spent a night camping here and it was beautiful! Will visit again.

1. View.

2. Over the edge.

3. We did not heed the warning.

4. View.

5&6. He went down.

7. I went up. (Then he climbed up to meet me.)

8. Panoramic view.

Cornwall: Rocks

Various places, all visited in one day, with many miles of walking. The day ended with sun burnt legs and a well-deserved pint!

1&2. Chysauster Iron Age village.

3. Random jump off of what we speculated to be a Iron Age toilet.

4&5. Mulfra Quoit. We came across this randomly on our trek. I was quite pleased to be able to get inside it.

6&7. Mên-an-Tol. I took all the "normal" angle photos, too, but i figure there are enough of those on the internet. (And yes, of course i went through the hole.)

8. A panoramic of a climbable-looking rock in the Carn Galver area. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to stop and climb it, as we had a bus to catch.
