                Christine,
                Wow!!! I can see why you're so proud!!! It's absolutely beautiful! The history alone would keep me spellbound. I can see the pride taken by the residents too, everything looks picture perfect.
                You posted some photos of fly overs, I bet it's more magnificent from the air.
                You're very lucky!!

                  The channel islands are definitively a place i must visit one day. So nice and what a great indoor market. I love these places, especially the smell in there!
                  Thank you for posting, Kiki!!

                    Its a big day here in Jersey on thursday 11th August it is BATTLE OF FLOWERS DAY . I have my front grandstand seat opposite the VIP stand so i should be able to get some good photos of the floats. The singer Gareth Gates is Mr Battle this year and is on the float with this years Miss Battle. Radio and TV stations will all be there, and the thousands of people who travel from many places to see the parade. Looking forward to a great day.

                          Jersey Battle of flowers 11th August 2011

                          after such a perfect day on the Wednesday, Thursday was cloudy and light rain at one point, but it didn't dampen the spirits of the crowd. most of the Parishes take part and they also have floats designed and made by the children of the Parishes. It takes all year to put it all together with the fresh flowers only added on the last few days working into the early hours of the morning. The floats are so big they leave in the early hours of the morning from their Parish to travel to the Esplanade where it all takes place. Judges see all the floats perform and check the flowers, colours have to be correct and all in line with the design. Every flower is placed by hand, i did it one year and it is amazing how much goes into each float and even the amount of glue on each flower has to be right so not to damage the flowers. It is a great community event.
