Guernsey May 2014

Over to Guernsey again last week to see grandson Edward and join in the Liberation Day celebrations - the 69th anniversary of the liberation of Guernsey from Hitler's Nazis on 9th May 1945.
It's only 2 months since we were last there but Edward's seems to have changed such a lot in that time. This is his multi-purpose gesture apparently signifying "What do I do now?", "I've finished doing that", "Look what I did" or "I didn't do that" as appropriate.
Standing at the top of his slide in the garden
Enjoying a lollipop at Moulin Huet Bay
Albert Pier in St Peter Port was pretty crowded on Liberation Day
Watching the vehicle cavalcade along the Esplanade
The cavalcade of vehicles of the Guernsey Old Car Club and the Guernsey Military Vehicles Group was led by the RAF Lossiemouth Pipes & Drums band.
The vehicles in the parade included this Jaguar XK120 from the early 1950s....
....this 1934 Austin Seven 2-seat Tourer....
....and this WW2 Chevrolet C15 Truck.

We came home on the Sunday evening flight to Manchester and the clear and sunny weather allowed me to take this photograph of the west coast of Guernsey shortly after take-off.
