Amaruers

Les_amareursIts correct title is Les Amaruers, but what’s a the between friends.

This little harbour on the west coast of Guernsey is right next to the beach where I spend my summers. It boasts a pier that the kids love to jump off at high tide.They are both part of a much larger horseshoe shaped bay, the far edge of which you can see in the distance.

The tower you can see on the horizon is one of a series of towers built during the Napoleonic war to keep Old Boney out if he ever decided to use us as a stepping stone to invading mainland Britain.

On a clear day ( with a high powered pair of binoculars) I can see this bay from my kitchen window :-)

I will be back tomorrow with photos of Lady Eleanor…

    Very intriguing landscape. Or seascape. I love the look of sunlight on water.
