Jersey to Guernsey

We travel by Ferry

sunny 24 °C

Our sailing on the Condor Ferry in the afternoon so we had plenty of time for breakfast and packing. We returned the car with no scratches. There was a small place that sold food here. Would you believe that there was only sweet stuff to eat. He had no savoury food. I think normally he does have some. Were hungry as was now the afternoon so had something sweet then had an enormous coughing fit as it was dry and crumbly. Bought a newspaper and read it to catch up on some news. Check out the Herald page on the cell phone each day so we can keep an idea of what is happening back home. We certainly are pleased we missed one of the coldest wettest winters. We got some savory food on the ferry. This crossing didn't take very long. To get on this ferry you walked through long tunnels, good if it is raining. It was a pleasant crossing not rough at all, just as well as Geoff not a good sailor and myself still trying to get over the sinus infection. It was just making me a lot more tired. At least the doctor gave me plenty of antibiotics. We collected the car and had explained the give way system at crossings where you stop and let people through. Driving politeness needed as narrow lanes etc. The top speed only 35 miles an hour. Boy racers would get frustrated here. Our hotel was the Duke of Normandy right in the Centre of Saint Martin's. The drive in entrance to the hotel was a tight squeeze then there were no parks. They were quite happy at the hotel told us to double park and they would move our vehcle if necessary. When you looked at the front of our hotel there was a small dar sales area bung in the middle of the building. We enjoyed coming into Guernsey by Ferry. An attractive Bay. We liked this hotel very clean, it seemed to attract a young clientele who spent a lot of time at the bar area. We had another good sized room, very clean. After resting we walked down town exploring the shopping area and waterfront. There was a large enclosed marina. We found where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert landed in Guernsey. Queen Elizabeth and King George visited Guernsey 5 years after the German occupation ended. We found a nice restaurant on the harbour so sat outside for dinner.
