The waves are bigger than they look!

It was cold and hard work...

St Peter Port and Sark from top of Victoria Tower

18 Aug: We left Poole harbour at 3.30am in driving rain and 13.5 hours later arrived in St Peter Port, Guernsey. It was an exciting crossing with Force 6 wind for part of the journey (about 45 km/hour) and waves 3-4 metres high – the photo doesn’t do the waves justice! We both felt a bit queasy for a while … but it was a great experience and we feel as though we are now really on our way.

Great views from the top of Victoria Tower above St Peter Port, which was built out of public funds to commemorate Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visiting Guernsey in 1846.
