With so many miles travelled in the last few months and so little blogging- where to begin!? Answer: close to guernsey home- the island of Alderney, in the guernsey bailiwick

Am guessing this rusty old piece of agricultural equipment is there for good- great for the photographer.

The skies were simply stunning and this HUGE seagull was perfectly perched.

Yellow phone boxes- different!

This train is actually operating- someone forgot to cut the grass?

Not THE Swiss cottage…

Thousands of gannets make Les Etacs rock home

Baby Aston martin!!

Perhaps not…….

One way to get to Alderney -not for those without their sealegs!

And the other way- outside toilet only.

Alderney has recently applied for dark sky status and will probably achieve the sought after designation

Thanks for visiting!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
