Two years ago, we spent a week at the end of October in Guernsey with friends Steve and Rosemary at their self-catering timeshare apartment. This year, they were kind enough to invite us again and we were happy to accept. As Carol had just joined the digital photographic community, this would make an interesting trial ground.
To us, Guernsey feels like Cornwall in miniature in that it has some very pleasant coastal cliff paths but is more or less a mere six mile by seven mile triangle. It’s a wonderful place for fish and seafood with which to replace the energy used in walking, too. When not walking the coastal paths, we saw a display of Nerines (a.k.a Guernsey lilies) and visited the Little Chapel (one of the smallest in the world) in the grounds of Blanchelandes Ladies College at Les Vauxbelets. Below is a selection of our pictorial memories, a mixture of digital images with some from good old film technology. (I have to say, I do not miss the laborious scanning process but there is still something about having a 35mm slide.)
