Dear Friends & Families,
Previous posts, I have been traveling around the island capturing the moments that I had and sharing with you all. People always says that “A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words”. that is why during my younger times I always has this film camera with me capturing the candid moments. During my trip here I met a lot of nice people and visiting nice places. If giving me a chance to travel another week over to the island and I would love to.
Last post that I written about visiting the Little Chapel. The place was magnificent and the scenery was absolute fabulous. The next day after work, my colleague and I went for a evening walk to a fort just 15minutes away from the place we are staying. Staying in the island is walk and walk. If not will be traveling by bus. It was small fort that during the war the Germans built to fortify the island. Many surfers do surf at the beach nearby and some just hanging around just to enjoy the day.
Then we walked another 30minutes to a bigger fort. While were walking to the fort we did stop by a nearby restaurant to take a photograph for a remembrance. While I was back home I did search the Internet for place to have nice food and this place came out from the list. The restaurant name was Crabby Jack’s. There are some positive and negative feedback about the restaurant and I will talk about it next time. The place was nice and ample parking space for the diners.
Then we continue our journey to the fort. We saw a wooden shelf at the road side and it is meant to sell local produce fruits and vegetables. The concept is good but is bad idea back home here. Hahahaha..I hope you know what I means.. The fort that we were heading to is called Fort Hommet.
The total journey from our place that we stay to the Fort took us 30minutes+. The walk was tiring but when you can see the nature and great scenery the tiresome will just faded out. Then there is many spiky and thorny plants. I still remember that one time that I was trying to snap a photo of the plant and there was another at my back. I can feel that thorn was poking behind my back.. Ouch!
It was at the top of the cliff where the fort was built I took a chance to snap a photo at a nearby cliff where the sea was just behind me. If I missed a step I will bid farewell to everyone. The sound of the sea water crashing to the rocks were awesome. We spend almost 10 to 12 minutes snapping photos and my colleague was exploring higher. Capturing the moments in the higher ground.
After that we walked to the fort and we was stopped by a lovely dog which has a cold and long fur. The dog owner was nice and instructed the dog to let us to pat and snap a few photograph. The dog is really well trained.
As we walked towards the fort, one of our colleague took a photograph of both us and it was a great photo. Thank you! We managed to go in the fort but not into the fort because the doors was sealed up so we just able to take some photos outside. Is still great. After spending another 10 to 15minutes we prepared to walk back to our place we stayed to call a day off.
While we were walking down from the fort and we saw a Siberian Husky. It was so beautiful and we took a few photograph and have a short chat with the owner. Half way back to our place we noticed that the sea level has increased and the waves is rushing to shores and hitting the barrier splashing the sea water up a few feet..It was like.. see the photo then you will know..
I think I stop writing here and continue more…the next post… See you…
Dear Friends & Families,
I’m back to continue my stories and sharing my experiences during my trip to Guernsey. Well another week is past and it was Saturday and another day a few of us head out to the town again. This time we went for lunch and a little shopping. We then walked to the Aquaria. I’ve forgotten how much we pay for the entrance fee but I think is about GBP10+ per person. Well I will not recommend you to go and see this aquaria because there are not much things to see..
Even back home Aquaria KLCC is much more better or Langkawi..sigh..a rip off for us. After that we walked to the bus terminal and during our journey to the terminal we drop by a spot. Is some sort of memorial thingy. It has a minature with 24 hours CCTV monitored.. Gosh..so high tech.. Didn’t do much on this Saturday but instead on Sunday we took a bus to the Little Chapel. It was so beautiful and little..you can see me in the photos and compare how little the chapel is. You can always google the history about this little chapel. It has a great history. The wall was fitted porcelain tiles and ceramic. I did donate a few pounds and a sign in the book.. hope the next time I return my name is still in the book.
After an hour at the chapel taking photographs we went to wait for the next bus to bring us to the town and have our lunch. Where we will have our lunch again? no better than Santana.. haha.. after lunch we around the town and explore further the town and found a quiet spot or garden where we can just chill out for a moment. About time to go home we walk back to the terminal and we only knew that there is a carnival during the morning. What a waste but we still able to try some cheese..there are a few types of cheese for us to try from mild..medium and…STRONG!! The mild was nice… the medium..ahem..still acceptable and as for the strong ones…gosh…my friend was nearly to puke.
The next day, after work me and my friend walk from our house to the fort nearby..more about that next post…
