Channel Islands 3: A Day on Guernsey

An account of a full day on Guernsey as part of my series on my recent holiday.

Welcome to the latest post in this series about my recent holiday (I am now back in Lynn, so these posts will be coming less sporadically). This post covers the one full day we spent on Guernsey en route to Alderney.

A FRENCH RESTAURANT

On the Saturday evening, having established ourselves at St Georges Guest House, roughly a kilometre from the centre of St Peter Port, we went out to find a restaurant to eat at. We settled on a French establishment, and the food and drink were both excellent.

Castle Cornet

The following morning we walked out to Castle Cornet, purchasing food at an M&S Food Hall on the way. We ate near a lighthouse, which I subsequently walked out to – it was very windy around the lighthouse but worth it for the views.

THE GUERNSEY MUSEUM

There was a wildlife photography exhibition at the Guernsey Museum as well as some stuff on the history of the island.

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.

One thought on “Channel Islands 3: A Day on Guernsey”

  1. I feel I have you caught up in St Peter Port.

    So the Museum was focused on 40 years of Radio Guernsey and also the Stone Axes.

    [a shame so many photos didn’t appear to come through].

    I did notice the many BBC Radio Guernsey mugs…

    And there is a Marathon at the beginning of April.

    There was an inscription on that particularly shaggy rock.

    The lock reminded me a lot of THE LUDICRIOUS LIFE OF MILO where a lock featured prominently in one of the posts.

    Nautique is a good one.

    Hope the ice-cream was nice – there is certainly a variety.

    The bird and the marine life really showed itself again especially near the Fort.

    I have a feeling that the 2CV has something to do with Citröen.

    Dolphins in the crossings between Herm, Alderney and Guernsey … and Lihou Island which I nearly forgot.

    Love the mosaic lighting.

    And Le Bistro.

    [there may be more than one French restaurant in that bit of Peter Port…]

    Castle Cornet extra good for spotting.
