Guernsey, July 2015

Our Granddaughter Eliza was a year old on 28th July, so we paid another short visit to Guernsey to wish her a Happy Birthday. We started off by looking after Grandson Edward for the day on the Thursday and took him first to Saumarez Park where the Guernsey Royal Agricultural Show was being held.

We later walked from the Park to the beach at Cobo where Edward and Grandma went to collect shells and Edward had a paddle in the sea.

The next day involved a shopping trip to St Peter Port where they were holding the two week long Town Carnival.
There were musicians and other entertainers at various spots around the town centre and the Tropikal Vizions Steel Band seemed to be a popular attraction outside Boots on Le Pollet when we walked past.

On the Saturday I went with Paul and Edward into St Peter Port again and Edward wanted to see the big cruise ships anchored outside the harbour.
There were two ships there that day.....
.....Magellan, operated by Cruise & Maritime Voyages.....
.....and Silhouette, operated by Celebrity Cruises.

On the Sunday we spent the morning with Paul & Anna and the children, and Eliza opened some early birthday presents before we all went out to lunch and then to Grandpa's house in the afternoon for a birthday party.

The weather improved as the day went on and the children were able to go into the garden and play, or sit with Grandpa.

Monday came all too soon and Edward and Eliza came with Daddy to the airport to say goodbye to Grandma (and Grandad of course).
