              That’s just the floats that appealed to me… I think ALL the photos are great Kiki!

                Fantastic photos Kiki, and i love the work that's been put into those floats. They obviously take immense pride in their work. Good to see 'Nemo' amongst them all!

                    yes they start right away on next year getting the designs ready and building the structures, and raising money, the big floats cost about 20.000 to put together. Some flowers came from Holland, some are local, but with thousands needed the cost is high.

                      Strong winds blew sand over the Gunsight Cafe and blocked the cycle path and walkway to St Aubins. TV cameras from BBC and CHANNEL TV were there early this morning . The sand had reached halfway up the wall. When I arrived to take photos the men had been clearing it away for a few hours. The cafe will be closed for a few days to clear the inside of sand.

                        For days now the diggers are working on the beach to replace the sand after the storm. It was a perfect day for them warm and sunny.

                            Visiting the Craft Fair at St Aubins, Jersey. The Parish Hall celebrating the Queens Jubilee with show of flags.



                            The Restaurants also have a show of flags, infact the whole Island is celebrating the Jubilee, including my home.

                                Looks like you had better weather on Jersey than we did up here Kiki. It rained most of Monday and Tuesday at least here in the We(s)t Country.
                                Cheers,

                                Mark.
