Weekend in Jersey

I had a lovely weekend away with boyf visiting my relatives in Jersey. We were so lucky with the weather as it had been threatening to rain the whole time. We spent Friday visiting the War Tunnels and trenches.

Then it was off to the Maritime Museum. We got in free as my Aunt gave us her Heritage Card. There were plenty of nautical activities within the museum to educate and entertain even if (like me) you don't have a clue about wind pressure and tides.

We finished the day off by heading up to Gorey Castle, which is fascinating. We dressed up in pirate costumes, walked past the wheel of urine and came across a 3D picture of the Queen. It was so life like.

Saturday was spent watching Ireland win the Rugby and getting very drunk while Sunday we strolled along the beach and then onto the pier at St Catherines where we managed to spot some Dolphins.
Unfortunately Monday was spent making the journey home. Monday was spent unpacking and packing (the house move isnt happening yet but we will be ready when it does) and Tuesday was spent round boyf's for St Patricks Day treats (my first time trying bacon and cabbage) sadly I had to stick to the juice as I was driving. Still there is always the weekend.


  1. And who pray is that fetching creature with the blue face ? embroidery on her clothes looks very Breton.

  2. She was in the Maritime Museum. I'm not too sure who she was meant to be but she frightened me.
