The Jersey WayPosted: 04/06/2014
Life can be fairly relaxed if you have a powder blue convertible Fiat 500, bright sunshine with blue sky and good company when exploring the beautiful island of Jersey. Our trip included a stop at St. Ouen’s Bay (where we had the most delicious food and view of the endless beach at El Tico restaurant) Rozel Bay, Devil’s Hole on the North coast and Corbiere to the far South. We were lucky to be staying in St. Aubin’s Harbour with its beautiful views and numerous pubs and restaurants.
Although the island seems bigger – Jersey is small, just 9 miles from end to end and 5 miles wide. We took a wrong turn from the North of the Island and found ourselves back in St. Helier before we knew it. I couldn’t blame my girlfriend’s map-reading as sign posts are few and far between in Jersey and it is easy to take a wrong turn and find yourself on a farm track chatting to a bemused local.
A short flight from the UK (just 100 miles) and only 14 miles from France, Jersey is a mixture of French and English influences so there really is no excuse for a visit…
