Lovely last day and homecoming!

The sun shone on our last day as we strolled on the beach at Ouen’s Bay and explored La Corbière.How wonderful to get home and find out that my application for German citizenship has been accepted!

Brexit and distractons

Totally devastated by the majority vote to leave, we distracted ourselves in the sunshime with breakfast and Phase 10 on the sunny balcony, a swim in the lovely pool, lunch at Mad Mary’s and a yummy cream tea at Plemont Beach Cafe. Now off to pack ….

Jersey – a look back at a dark history

The Jersey War Tunnels are not really an attraction for pleasure, they are more a historical monument where you are invited to get an interesting look back at the 2nd World War history of the Island with objective facts and figures.

Liz was especially impressed by the picture with Winston Churchill where you can see the same question that the British had to answer today in the UK (but in another context):

Pink houses, Edith Piaf and Mussels

I just loved this pale pink house at Rozel Bay on the northeast coast and Reiner, an Edith Piaf fan, the house opposite.

And I finally got my mussels at a lovely restaurant with an unusual door on the Ladies …

… in the pretty village of Gorey dominated by Mont Orgueil.

Football, the Beach and Fish & Chips


The Butler was in good form for Wales’ spectacular win to send them to the next round and even wore matching socks 😊. 

He was rewarded with a great plate of his favourite Fish & Chips at Colleens (also my late favourite aunt) …

… at beautiful La Grève de Lecq beach on the North Coast.

From Water’s Edge to St Helier

From Water’s Edge to St Helier and later in the day back to Bouley Bay to our lovely chalet.

Stella Artois, what else?


Jersey – British but not British …

We arrived yesterday in glorious sunshine to this lovely green Channel Island which is a crown dependency but not part of the EU – so is also watching the Brexit story from afar. Our brand new self-catering chalet overlooks Bouley Bay and is lovely and quiet. We are spoiled with two bathrooms, a dishwasher and a good free wifi connection 😊😊.
