Channel Islands 6: St Anne

A visit to St Anne, as I continue my account of my recent office.

As I continue my account of my holiday (18th-27th March), this is the first post solely dedicated to Alderney.

EXPLORING ST ANNE

On our first full day on Alderney, the Tuesday, we set out to visit St Anne, the only town on the island. Our departure was delayed by the necessity of waiting for a high tide to go down. As was the case through this holiday we were blessed with excellent weather.

There was much to see on the way to the town:

The town itself was quite an interesting place, and the information office was very useful.

We walked back the same way we had come.

All photographs in this post can be seen at full size by clicking on them, but we end with a view of the fort:

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.
