And here are Ric and his Rach! :) They took a morning off work to give me a whirlwind tour!
It was gloriously sunny on the my first day. Here is the biggest town.
Here is a beach, one of 4 that I visited! It was so warm someone was swimming!
Here is another beach. So very pretty.
Here's another beach I went to visit on my own and had it all to myself! This one was all pebbly
I went for a walk along the coast and noticed that there were always benches in the most beautiful spots. Here is one of the spots.
I was sat on a very high wall when I took this picture. There's a possibility that one of those island blobs could be another country entirely! :)
It's hard to believe that Guernsey is just a stone's throw away from Manchester. My flight wasn't even an hour and it felt like a completely different world. It's filled with sandy beaches, and breathtaking views, and is a place full of adventure with a much slower pace. I know that I was spoiled with 2 wonderfully warm days, but I think it really helped me to drink in the surroundings: Guernsey is beautiful.
I had to work when I was in Guernsey, so I didn't have time to see everything. At the same time, I don't think I wanted to do it all in 4 days. I kinda like the fact that I've got more to see and a return visit on the horizon, and more Ric and Rach time to book in too!
I'm so glad that I took this short break. It helped me to relax a little, to see a little more of our glorious world and bask happily in unexpected sunshine. I'm looking forward to going back, but feel much better about being at home. I needed the time away, it seems. Now... back to doing All The Things :)
