Photographer's Note

The beautiful Guernsey coastal path is a 40 mile round island walk much of which is steep and challenging. The cliffs are mainly on the south coast, and the south-west and south-east corners. Broad, sandy bays can be found elsewhere. Fourteen friends from the 'Horsham Walking for Health' have just returned from a week that included several walks that used the coastal path. Five of us did an extra 13 mile walk to complete the whole circuit! Total walking mileage for the week was 50 miles. This picture was taken a little east of le Gouffre on our way to Petit Bot. There were some steep steps down to a bay off the main path/steps where a lonely boat can be seen.

The Channel Islands are close to the French Coast (Normandy) and in bad weather can suffer from fog. This we found out when our turboprop aircraft had three aborted landings and a diversion to the neighbouring island, Jersey. A flight that should have taken less than an hour took eight! The next day the sun shone and the weather was wonderful, although windy, for the rest of the week.
