Today is Day 2 of our holiday and the first full day in Jersey. We started off the morning slowly, with croissants and chocolate chip brioche, while sitting around in PJs drinking tea and deciding what we would do with our day. Eventually we decided to head out and tackle the south-west corner of Jersey, starting around St. Aubin’s Harbour and heading west around the coast until just after La Pulente.
First we stopped at St Aubin’s Harbour, where the weather was a bit dull but we managed to get a few nice pictures. I took the above panoramic picture which came out pretty nicely.
Next we came to Noirmont Point. Here there was a War Memorial and Command Bunker. The weather was so windy and so it was both freezing and terrifying all at the same time. We did have a lot of fun taking pictures though.
After that we did a short drive to Portelet Bay. This was really picturesque. There was a tomb and tower there but they weren’t glaringly obvious so I’m not sure if I captured them in the photo or not!
At St Brelade’s Bay, we parked the car and actually planned to have lunch as well as take pictures. We went on the beach and had a nice walk along it, before heading to Pizza Express for lunch. The meal was really nice and even better we used Tesco vouchers to pay for it!
The last point of the day was La Pulente, were we stopped only briefly as it was really cold. La Pulente is actually the beginning of a stretch of road called “Five Mile Road” but we turned off pretty soon after and made our way back to Boscobel Farms. Hopefully we’ll travel the whole of “Five Mile Road” another day.
This map picture (and its very wobbly lines) show the route we took today. We are now back at the apartments, settled in for the evening and all just sat around relaxing. An evening of TV and wine lies ahead!
