This week has been a difficult one for us as we were waiting tentatively for the end of the world as predicted by Chris McCann leader of the eBible fellowship.
He said that following the blood moon of last week the Earth was going to be engulfed and destroyed by a fire ball at some point on the 7th of October. Now, we know it’s the 9th but we are still worried he might just be a few days out with his prediction So below are some things we think you must do in Cornwall before the earth may be destroyed….. go on, hurry up!
1. Take the zip wire at Adrenalin Quarry near Liskeard. it goes about 40 miles per hour and it’s almost 500 metres long suspended 50 metres above a flooded quarry. We thought this would be a good one to do as it’s so quick most people would have time to squeeze in a ride on the zip wire before the end of the world. http://www.adrenalinquarry.co.uk/
2. Walk the road to St Michael’s Mount (at low tide – unless you have high tech diving equipment). We think the fortified mount has to be safer than anywhere else on the planet and as far as we know it has never been hit by a comet! http://www.stmichaelsmount.co.uk/
3. Eat Cornish pasties. Loads of them. And scones. And ice cream. Keep going until you feel a bit nauseous – it’s the end of the world remember so it will only go to waste.
4. Heligan Gardens. We thought that some of you might appreciate something to alleviate the understandable stress you must be feeling as life on earth comes to an end so explore the Lost Gardens of Heligan and lose yourself in the tranquil surroundings. You will soon forget anything that is bothering you such as being over-drawn, where your car keys are and of course the imminent day of judgement. http://heligan.com/
5. Go to the Tate in St Ives. What better way to discover the meaning of life than through modern art? https://www.visitcornwall.com/things-to-do/west-cornwall/st-ives/tate-st-ives#.VhUye7tdH4g
6. Squeeze through the Men-an-Tol stone. This is quite an important one as anyone who passes through the hole in the stone is said to be blessed with increased fertility. This could come in handy if you survive a post-apocalyptic disaster as it will be your job to repopulate the earth. Be careful not to get stuck – that would not be at all helpful. http://www.historic-cornwall.org.uk/a2m/bronze_age/stone_circle/men_an_tol/men_an_tol.htm
7. Go fishing – enjoy the tranquil Cornish coast whilst learning an essential post-apocalyptic skill… two birds. One stone. We don’t mess around.
8. Surf on Fistral beach. Exciting waves to ride, stunning scenery, what could be better? http://fistralbeach.co.uk/
9. Visit Tintagel Castle ruins in the hope that the legendary King Arthur and Merlin step up and save us all with their magical powers. Even if Merlin doesn’t appear in a puff of smoke, you will still find the breathtaking views and beautiful ruins to fill you with a sense of awe and everyone knows that awe saves everyone! http://www.tintagelweb.co.uk
10. And finally if the world ends, watch the beautiful sunset at Lands End. https://www.landsend-landmark.co.uk/
So there we go. It’s been nice knowing you all and if we do all survive, come and see us for a celebratory pint at The Bowgie Inn Crantock!!
