70 years of freedom

The Channel Island Liberation celebrations of May 9 commemorate the liberation of the islands from Nazi occupation at the end of the Second World War. This year marked the 70th anniversary and the procession was marked by a wonderful collection of period car, army trucks, tractors and themed floats. The rain stayed away allowing people to enjoy the French Market and the Guernsey market.

Several spectators dressed the part

Equal adoration....

We should never forget the need to remember those who sacrificed so much so that we could be free.

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
