Zum Stricken habe ich immer noch nichts zu zeigen (hab nicht immer alles dabei und hier im Zimmer finde ich es nicht dekorativ genug zum Fotografieren), dafür habe ich eine kleine Zusammenstellung dessen, was ich hier so sehe. Sie ist überhaupt nicht irgendwie geordnet (außer nach Datum), einfach halt ein bisschen was zu schauen und vielleicht genießen. Also los gehts.
I still have nothing to show knitwise (I haven't got all my knitting projects with me and I do not like the light of my hotel room enough to take the pictures there). Still, here is another random collection of what I see here. There is no special order, (except for the date) just a bit to watch and hopefully cherish. So here we go.
First we are on a little stroll around St. Martin and St. Peter Port. If you go to St. Peter Port from St. Martin, you can either take the cliff walk (wheeze stairs up and down) or you cut the "detour" through Jerbourg and walk through a small settlement. There you are able to find little treasures like this door. Better even, the whole house is amazing, but I wasn't able to take it with my limited abilities to take pictures.
Also on this way there is an assortment of the most amazing gardens. I didn't take a picture of the one with the approximately 327 garden gnomes (I didn't count them), it was a bit too much. But this garden is wonderful, very cultivated and still something I would long to spend a whole day in.
This assortment of street names is of special importance for those who read and loved "The Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peel Pie Society". Our little strolls leads through exactly that part of St. Martin, where the Guernsey people of this story live.
Then there it is, Guernseys most beautiful view (at this trip, at any rate). It is taken from the cliff pass above Fermain Bay, the little island in the distance is Herm. Visiting Fermain Bay is quite hard, steeply downhill and uphill on the other side. There are no shortcuts, no parking places, nothing but good feet and enough breath. But it's worth it, every step!
My last but one picture for today is the view the other way round: looking at St. Peter Port from the sea. Unfortunately it was a bit cloudy that day and the picture is not terribly focussed, but that's how the darling looks from the Sea on the way to Herm.
The end of our trip today is a small, insignificant butterfly, sitting quietly on some surface. It was there for half an hour in front of my lense. I thought it was at the end of its days (or hours), but suddenly it flew up in the air and vanished together with another butterfly, which seemed to have waited for it in the trees. I loved it!
Haftungsausschluss: Diese Bilder sind nicht bearbeitet, das ist genau das, was vor meine Linse kam. Nicht, dass ich besonders gut bearbeiten könnte, nur zur Sicherheit.
Disclaimer: These pictures have not been changed, it's exactly, what I saw through my lense. Not that I'm terribly good at reworking pictures, but just in case.
