Flight

Taking off from Alderney's grass strip

These shots of the iconic trilander which until very recently flew on several Channel Island routes are now historic. Regulation and safety requirements and commercial demands have brought a close to a long, quirky history of inter island travel. In the old days they used to weigh you before giving you a seat number, then they just eyed you up and down while standing on the tarmac with the other passengers. You could always tell the tourist who was experiencing this for the first time- the sweat beads dripping off his nose.

This week's challenge set by Nancy gives me a chance to say 'farewell' 'au revoir' 'auf wiedersehen' to the Aurigny trilander.

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
