Weekly travel theme- beaches

Cobo beach guernsey

This week's travel theme – beaches- should have been an easy one for someone like me who lives on a small island. If I'm honest I don't really care for beaches, more my antipathy to sand than the water meets land thing!



The perfect getaway island of Sark is in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. No cars anywhere on the island, just bicycles and horse (and tractors). I love sark.

When the sun shines, Scotland offers the traveller some of the most spectacular scenery around, and its beaches are no exception. Sadly, for me at least, the water temperature never rise high enough to tempt my toes in.

Southern California, now the water temperature there is more appealing, but I'm back to my dislike of sand!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  1. Thank you! This was my first time at Portland – I think we may have arrived too early for the guernsey ferry so took a drive. I appreciate that you took the time to comment.
