Just back from a few days away...
It was our 30th wedding anniversary on Monday and we celebrated by visiting the island of Guernsey. Our honeymoon was spent on Jersey all those years ago, but we'd not been to any of the other Channel Islands until now. The weather wasn't particularly kind to us - The flight home (on a prop plane), was an experience, with gale force winds making it a bumpy ride!
We made the most of our visit though and saw most of what the small island offers.
St Peter Port.
The Noon Day cannon fire.
The Occupation Museum.
The Little Chapel - entirely covered inside and out with a colourful mosaic of broken shards of china and sea shells.
The beach at Fort Grey.
Souvenir of the weekend.
The National Trust of Guernsey's Folk and Costume Museum.
Finally a visit to the Old Quarter at St Peter Port, where this antique shop was closing down - We visited there on it's final day. The owner said she'd been there since 1975, but had decided to semi-retire and now just sell at antique fairs...I bought several items from her...but the best thing was I got a pink one! - AND managed to get it home in one piece on that bumpy flight home!
Here it is in pride of place with my others - A perfect souvenir of a lovely mini-break and a reminder of our thirty years together.
