We spent a wonderful week in the Channel Islands celebrating our 30th anniversary – three days in Guernsey followed by four in Jersey. St Helier, Jersey’s capital, has a branch of Waterstones – the only one on the islands. Whilst there, I treated myself to a couple of Gerald Durrell books – he founded Jersey zoo in 1959 – My Family and Other Animals (which I have read before) and Birds, Beasts and Relatives.
Some pictures from our holiday…
