Anchored in Alderney

07 August 2010 | Braye
Alderney is really beautiful. We've had 4 nights at anchor here and will spend another tonight before heading off to Jersey tomorrow. Its Alderney week, so we have been entertained with a music concert at the old harbour and tonight there is a procession through the main street in the small town followed by fireworks - that's the main reason we've stayed so long. Islanders are very welcoming and actively go out of their way to be helpful. We spent the last 2 days walking and exploring the island. There is a huge amount of history - in every nook & cranny there are German bunkers, most of which can be accessed and explored and around every corner, in every bay there seems to be another Napoleonic fort. Beaches are picture postcard - the softest, sandiest and so clean - Finn is donning his wetsuit later today and going snorkelling. We also saw yesterday, the gannets on a small off-lying rocky island. There were literally millions of them - it was quite a sight
The lighthouse in the picture is very impressive and stood out as we approached from Cherbourg on our arrival. Those are two enormous foghorns to the left of the lighthouse - not sure if they are active but they look pretty impressive.
We've sampled the local fish'n'chips - scrummy. Even the locals use it, so it must be good !
Love reading all your comments so please feel free to add an insult !
Lots of love to you all XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Extra: We have lived aboard for the last 5 years, first on our old yacht "AMP UK" and now on "Wild Alliance" since buying her in Nov 08. Improvements and upgrades have been made over that time and although she still needs lots of "cosmetic" TLC, the big job list is gradually getting shorter.......
