Holidays – Plemont Bay and Greve de Lecq, Jersey

Also while in Jersey I took to the footpaths along the coast, walking from the amazing Plemont Bay to Greve de Lecq (another bay) and then back again. It was really beautiful and a lovely walk. Plemont Bay is cool because the beach has lots of caves which is cool, there is also apparently a waterfall although I didn’t see it, the other cool thing about this bay though it that at high tide it is completely covered up. There is also a cute looking cafe halfway down the masses of steps to the beach, but I ate at Greve de Lecq instead. So after exploring the beach a little (just walking around the rock pools and looking at a couple caves) I went back up to the clifftop and started walking to the other bay. On the map it looks 2 miles (one way) but there are a lot of steps and hills on route as you follow it along, which makes it a bit harder but was absolutely fine, I even saw someone biking along here which is pretty incredible because after overtaking us I didn’t see him again so he must have biked right up the steps, something I definitely could not do. Greve de Lecq was also a pretty cool bay as there was more rock pools and small bits of bay that you had to climb over rocks or walk through the water to get to. I ate at Coleen’s Cafe there which was one of my favourite lunches on this holiday and so that was lovely before having to head back the other direction. The other cool thing about this walk is that as you are walking along the North-West coast you can see Sark and Guernsey (Two other channel islands) in the distance. Some photos from this walk include;

Holidays – Elizabeth Castle, Jersey

I went to Jersey for a week after going to London, Jersey is one of the channel islands, just 9 by 5 miles, and is so beautiful. On my first day there I went to Elizabeth Castle in St Helier which was pretty good, there’s a small path leading from the bay to the castle entrance which I took to get to the castle but when the tide comes in the path is completely covered and there’s a small amphibious ferry to take you back to the mainland. The views from the castle are awesome while the stuff in the castle is also cool, there’s a couple of actors walking around who sit on the wall above the door with a gun, then later do a talk in the courtyard along with a marching demonstration and then the firing of a cannon. Along with the cannon they fire there are many more dotted around the castle grounds as well as in a museum building which also has rooms showing what the living conditions would have been like for soldier and officers. It’s all really interesting and there is loads to see which is good as it links into the characters’ talk. Some photos I took;
