Guernsey Island Tour

I’m writing this evening while in the bar on the ferry back to Portsmouth. The crossing so far is very rough – the weather between Guernsey and Jersey is not pleasant, I’ve been mostly in my bedroom, holding on for dear life as the boat rocks and rolls in the waves.

Before departing Guernsey I had a lovely day driving around the island, visiting all the sites, from Pembroke Bay up in the North to Fermain and La Corbière in the South, via Bordeaux Harbour and St Sampsons – and finishing up with a Cream Tea in St Peter Port.

My highlight was the Little Chapel – which is a lot bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. I loved their “Light a candle for a loved one” (battery powered candles of course, Health and Safety and all that); I lit one for Hart & Harwood relatives, and another for my work friends Anne-Marie and Sophie.

Here is a selection of photos from my trip today;

…and here’s some photos from the ferry. I’ve got my own cabin, which is a good thing as with these waves I think I need a long lie down.

We’re about to depart for Portsmouth from Jersey now – so before we get in to the really rough waves I’m off to bed.

It has been a short, but an enjoyable weekend in the Channel Islands.

Good night,
