Jersey Holiday

 

Jersey is part of the channel Islands located just off the coast of

France, part of the UK but not subject to British Parliament or UK Tax Laws. 

We were invited to our friend’s daughters wedding and decided to make a holiday of it.  We arrive just as the sun was setting above the cloudsJersey Holiday 326, this was a beautiful welcome to the Island. the first few days were spent helping our friend with the arrangements and the entertaining, there was so much to do the reception was held in a Marquee on the top a cliff with views in two 2007_0908Jersey0013adirections over the north coast.   The day of the wedding arrived and as you can see I was ready to photograph anything!

The wedding was held in St Helier the capital of Jersey and transport for the Bride and groom was a Tuc-Tuc, this is a motorized rick-shaw which is the brain child of the groom!

 The rest of the guests were transported to the reception by vintage coach, and here are the happy couple. The Wedding Breakfast was followed by a Barn Dance and the festivities went on well into the night.

So back to being tourists on the beautiful Island of JerseyJersey Holiday 409 , we visited gardens at Badgers End which are occasionally open in aid of Children in Need, We also took several walks along the coast  and five mile beach.   Jersey is a lovely holiday destination, I hope I have brought it alive for you Please look in the photo album for lots more pictures.

    Hi Suki.
                 After macheteing my way through the days chores I finely have time to visit some of my favourite people on spaces.
    Well Suki you have been enjoying yourself by the looks of things, your photo’s of Jersey are to say the least magnificent. The white rose sits splendid in it’s elegance and that hat well what can I say…if you want to get ahead, ect. But you do suit it.
     
    The tuctuc looks a great idea, if ever i were to wed again which i doubt very much, then I just may order one for the day.
    Badgers end looks to be an ideal place to visit, I just love to be near water. That reminds me I must take a bath this month.
     
    Well cheeryby for now Suki and once again that rose is a cracker, would you be so kind as to allow me to borrow it, I am sure I can find a place for it’s beauty somewhere on my space and I promise to water it everyday.
     
    Deep peace to you and yours Suki, love Kenny x.

    Hello Suki, thanks for the understanding comment, I really don’t know what to do with her and me, it really pushed me away from going back. And thanks again Suki for dropped by. I’ll do your tag one day, it’ll take me a bit of time but I like to try. Take care. Mei

    Hi Suki,
    Thanks for sharing your holiday.  I liked reading about all the sights, the wedding, etc.  Makes me feel like I was on an interesting trip myself.  Your slide show did not show this time but I will try again.  Your profile image did not load either on your main page, but it shows just fine on my page – nice photo.  I’m glad you had a wonderful time and I hope your day is going well.

    Suki, nearly missed your last comment, and so glad I didn’t.  Jersey looks wonderful.  I remember reading about Lily Langtry many years ago, and thought it sounded lovely then.  Next month I am heading up to see Magyk in Victoria, BC, one of my favorite cities.  It will be so nice to finally meet her.  She is like one of the first people I began visiting back and forth with.  Someday I’ll have to visit England.
    blessed be,

  17. Benedicta says:

    I’m sure you really enjoy this wonderful holiday, a wedding like this one is so special, the views are amazing as well as the photos, but I wonder what Bertie was thinking when you caught her on a pensive mood, really nice! 

  18. Annie says:

    Hi Suki thank you for dropping by my space when I returned the visit I was delighted to see your beautiful pictures of Jersey and your lovely blog about such a wonderful place. We have had the delight to visit there four times and would never hesitate to go back again. It is delightful. Pictures of our last trip in June are in my photo album if your interested. Sorry though there are rather a lot of them. We have been there in all weathers but never failed to enjoy it and 5 years ago we had the good fortune to be there for the battle of the flowers which was most spectacular. Unfortunatly it was before we had a digital camera so no pictures to load although I might get round to scanning them all one day. Im so pleased to here of your shared enthusiasm for a beautiful Island. Thank you for bringing back such warm memories Love n Hugs Annie xx
