Though the morning started off looking grey, the weather was predicting a pretty nice day so we sat down as a family and tried to decide what we would do. Visiting a castle was top of my list and Chris wanted to see a museum and in the end it was planned that we would try to do both. We headed into St Helier and parked the car, walking to the place where we assumed ferries took us over to Elizabeth Castle. We had just missed the 12 o’clock ferry and so sat down to wait till the 12.30 one. The ferry was one of those amphibious ones, that went from land to sea. We travelled over to the castle and spent majority of the day looking around the castle and eating lunch. There was a great cannon display too.
Making our way back to the entrance/exit, there was a huge queue for the next ferry and so we decided to walk. At low tide you can walk the causeway back and forth to the castle and since it was now 3 o’clock and walkable, we decided it would be fun. Sadly half way through the walk, the path was still covered with water so I had to take my shoes off to pass and the others had to jump through the deeper patches. It was fun though and the weather was beautiful so we all laughed about it. As we got to land again, we decided there wasn’t much point heading to the museum as it was only open for another hour. Instead we bought Jersey Cream ice creams and sat outside to eat them. We popped to a nearby supermarket and then headed back to the apartment where we had sandwiches for dinner, cookie dough pudding and watched a movie. Here are a few pictures from the day.
