Heights of Abraham

Considering the fact that I am not far away from the Peak District, today is the first time I’ve been there. We made a trip to Heights of Abraham at Matlock Bath. What was supposed to be a trip for 5 of us turned out to be a big group trip of 12, which wasn’t as bad as I feared it would be, although there were some weird stuff going on sometimes.

The weather wasn’t as good as it should’ve been, but it was all right. It alternated between drizzling, sun, and rain. Most of the rain fell during the earlier parts of our trip which is a good thing as afterwards we go to enjoy the scenery a bit more!

Because of the lousy weather while we were travelling up to Heights of Abraham by cable car, the photos I took of the outside from inside the cable car are all dotted with rain drops.

The following few photos are of the rocks in the cave which are lit up by different lights.. pretty….

Here’s a photo of Matlock Bath town centre. It’s a quiet place with not much people around. I wonder how this sleepy town survives.DSC04796

Well, just going to end my post with some comments for the day. It was entirely enjoyable apart from some awkward moments when we didn’t know what to talk about and also some irritating moments.

We had dinner at Pretty Orchid which serves Malaysian and Thai cuisine. For some reason, they gave us the set menu, which consisted of yucky food. Verdict? The interior is bad, there’s a weird smell around and the food is not good. Will not go there anymore..
