I’ve just returned from what was quite simply the best weekend away I’ve ever had. It was my birthday last Friday so Mr C organised a weekend away for us and we went to Jersey. Now I’ve always wanted to travel to the Channel Islands as I’ve head so much about the scenery and have always wanted to learn more about what life on the Islands was like during the war-time German Occupation.
I’ll provide more details of our trip later (once I’ve finished unpacking and the mountain of washing that’s come back with us) but it summarise Jersey is quite simply spectacular and the people there are some of the most friendly I’ve met!
I’ll return with more photos and tales of what we got up to, but here are two of my favourite photos from the trip. The first shows a house that I quite simply fell in love with in St Aubin – the blue paintwork was particularly lovely and gave the house a warm and welcoming appearance. The second shows Corbiere Lighthouse that Mr C and I were fortunate enough to visit today, including a trip into the lighthouse itself and a climb up to the light itself.
