    Not from Cherbourg, but there is a line from Granville (near the Mont Saint Michel, Normandy side) which runs (in theory) all year round but more often in summer.
    In the summer there is also a line from somewhere on the western Cotentin coast (Dielette or Carteret?). Check "Manche Iles Express".
    I think the ferry from Saint Malo is the most reliable. But if you leave from Granville we can have coffee while you wait for the ferry!

    hi Valerie, There are flights from Paris to Jersey, and the high speed Condor Ferry goes from St Malo every day. I also think there is a link from cherbourg, but not sure if it is just summer months for that. So you never know , and one day I may try and visit Paris. Last visit was at 14 yrs old...lol

    Yes this was about 7.00 pm a beautiful evening, we had to wait till 10.20pm for the beacon to be lit, then the fireworks display and the 21 gun salute. A great night

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
