Guernsey – The End

After Mam went home last week, I had a quiet & lazy few days, until Friday! We had a work leaving do friday night so I got to the pub for 7.30. It was raining lots of cats & dogs, so it wasnt pretty! After several drinks, some of them including a fruit salad & a curly wurly (must haves!) we went to the local nightclub called “follys”! In true irish spirit I went for the slurry chips & leg of a greyhound at the end of the night. Unfortunately I only managed the slurry chips:)

Naturally saturday was pretty much a write off due to hangover -laziness! So I did as little as possible, although I did manage to get into town for a while and have a look around again.

Sunday was more adventurous. I decided to go on one final bus tour of the island. Unfortunately it was raining so it was a bit washed out for a while! I went to Fort Grey (http://www.museum.guernsey.net/fortgrey.htm) for a look and went from there to Pembroke Bay for my lunch. The weather eased off a little bit on my way back into St Peter Port so I went for a walk out to Castle Cornet for one last look!

It was a lovely clear day Monday so I went out to Jerbourg, the most southerly point of Guernsey and it was absolutely amazing up there. I was able to see Herm & Sark clearly, Jersey & Alderney were a bit further away and France was out in the distance! Breathtaking views! Tuesday during my lunch hour I went to Victor Hugos Hauteville House (http://www.victorhugo.gg/hautvilleHouse.aspx) where he was in exile for 15 years. The house was eerily fantastic. You really got into the mind of Victor Hugo!

The Channel Islands are definately a place to come visit if you ever get the opportunity!

Today is Wednesday and I’m heading off to London at 2pm and I’m booked to do the London Eye at 8.30 and I’m meeting Michelle after that.

Next stop Dubai!
