St Peter Port Daisy

St. Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey in the Channel Islands and this unusual daisy is named after it. It thrives on and indeed in sunny granite walls, as the first shot shows.

Walking through the village du putron to the South Coast today, the sea and sky melded into a grey in distinct horizon.

Here is a peek at a couple of stunning houses which are being built – they have the unrivalled views captured in my shoreline shots.


Not too many people post from guernsey and the Channel Islands, so if you want to know/see more, just ask!

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 :)

  1. No, Barbara, unless you are an old Guern – a dying breed. They (Londoners) could tell I am from Scotland! A few still speak guernsey patoire which is a variant of French.
    Historically the islands swung between French and English ownership, so roads etc look like French but usually aren’t pronounced as the French would.
    As an outsider, I think a South African Cape accent has lots of similarities- don’t ask me how that happened. I’d say educated people here have no accent!


i'd love to hear from you...
