What I love about Jersey is that even though it's only a short distance from Ireland it feels like a whole other world. The weather is a whole lot warmer and as we were flying in we thought that the waters looked quite tropical, it left us dying for a swim! The island is quite small in size, just nine miles by five (as my dad keeps reminding me!) but you really wouldn't think it as there's so much to see and we're always finding new places to explore.
TUESDAYWatersplash for dinner, located right by the gorgeous beach of St Ouen's, my favourite (and the surfers it seems!) on the island.
WEDNESDAYTamba Park, a fantastic new park for little ones and people of all ages with lots of things to see and do. We had never actually taken Tyler Lee to a park like this before so it was great to visit and experience all the attractions with him.
Reg's Garden, which turned out to be free to visit and which was filled with the most stunning plants and fun little sights to see such as a pretend horse and carriage, a fairy garden and some little waterfalls.
Purple Haze Amongst the Lavender.
Old Portlet Inn, where they have a great play area called Pirate Pete's for the little ones. After a delicious chicken Caesar salad I went healthy and had an Eton Mess with raspberry compote for dessert...
The rest of our family holiday to Jersey and mine and Jacek's visit to another of the Channel Islands, Sark, will be up during the week. As you can see I took a little break from my proper photography for the week and also used my phone a lot too to capture our holiday moments, I just wish my phone's camera was a little bit better, I hope you've enjoyed reading about the first few days of our lovely little break away and will pop back to read part two when it's up.
