Jersey - A Very Special Island

The Isle of Jersey - a truly heart-winning island.

Mont Orgueil Castle - what a splendid wedding venue it is!  I love this image of the 'plane flying into the picture!

To get this shot, I had to practically lie on wet and slippery sand!  It was worth it!

Before I left Jersey, I wanted at least one picture of a Jersey Cow.  A little walk up a charming lane near our hotel proved fruitful - a whole herd of very friendly Jersey cows were more than happy to pose for me!

This last image was featured on the Instagram page @icu_britain - who could resist those big, brown eyes?

Before we went to Jersey, my friend said to me: "Go to Portelet Bay."  It wasn't a suggestion - more of a command!  

And I could see why.

Golden-brown sand, hot underfoot; deep blue waves; this was a beach full of beauty, history and poignancy.  

I climbed the steep cliff to Janvrin's Tomb, where Philippe Janvrin was buried to avoid spreading the plague to Jersey residents.  I inhaled the stale smell of pigeons and stared at the painfully blue sky and sea.

My happiest memories of Jersey are many - poppy and lemon muffins from Waitrose, clambering around the cliffs at Gorey Golf Course trying to photograph the full red moon, beachcombing, visiting Mont Orgueil Castle, playing tennis, swimming outside -  but my happiest time was that magical last day at Portelet Bay.
