A BARD'S BAY

The start of 2017 seems a suitable moment to tell you a little about Guernsey, the island I relocated to nearly twenty-five years ago.

This photograph is of Bordeaux bay where, at low tide, you'll discover an abundance of bird life and may even spot a beachcombing poet
At low tide you can easily stroll from the spot where this picture was taken, to the far shore and the granite houses opposite, which bookend the entrance to one of the oldest streets in Guernsey, Rue de Havre, near to where we live.
Just out of the picture is the breathtaking view of the other Bailiwick islands, Herm, Jethou, Brechou, Sark and Alderney, that Jane and I rejoice in on a daily basis

View from the seafront at St Peter Port, the island's capital.
