This is my last post on Jersey and so this is just a few other things that I did while there and haven’t talked about on here and fancied doing so. One place I went was the Jersey War Tunnels which were alright as they had loads of interesting things about the second world war in which Jersey was occupied by Germans. My only real criticism of the tunnels was that most of the things were in fact just writing that you walked around and read, but it was good still as there were other things to look at and they set it all out pretty nicely too. Something else at the tunnels that was cool was that everyone who went in got a ‘identity card’ which depicted a person who was in Jersey during this time and then if you went upstairs to the cafe you could look among the pictures on the walls for the person on your card and it would say what happened to them during the war.
One of the other things I did while in Jersey was to do another coastal walk, this time from Bouley Bay to Bonne Nuit Bay which I think was around 4 miles and it was really pretty. Something I find especially cool about the coastal walks around Jersey are that you can see other places out to sea, for example, in the last talk I said about how you could see Sark and Guernsey, and for this walk you could see a load of France’s Normandy. Here are a few pictures from this walk;
Another little place I visited was St Catherine’s Point which is a pier bit which you can walk along which is lovely and pretty. Something I really loved about Jersey was the smell of the sea when you were doing all this stuff, it was just very nice and make everything feel a lot more summery. At the base of the pier there was a cafe which was very nice and also just around the corner from that was a man (you can find him by searching ‘sandwizard simon’ who had made some truly amazing sand sculptures which will apparently stay there all year because of how he does it and they were absolutely incredible, here are a couple photos of them;
Now, the last thing I am going to put in this post is a lighthouse which was pretty cool as it was similar to Elizabeth Castle in that it is slightly out to sea with just a small path leading to it which gets covered in high tide. This was right in the bottom left corner of the island and is called Corbiere lighthouse, there’s not really anything there but the lighthouse and you can’t go in unless you are on a tour but it was really beautiful, so have a photo;
