Hi my darlings, thanks for popping in again. My page visits tipped over a big (for me) number yesterday and I am so flattered and thankful that you pop into my humble blog. I'm so thrilled to receive comments and I never tire of the "penpal" aspect of blogging and the friendships that form with readers from all over the world. So thank you, dear readers, and I do hope you keep coming back!
So, what have I been up to?
In my last post I was saying YES! to yellow. Today, I'm letting my pics do (most of) the talking.
I took my yellow t shirt and chinos down to the seafront.
Once a month, on a Sunday, Guernsey's seafront is designated traffic-free.
I decided to stroll along into town to soak up a bit of the atmosphere and check out what's what.
An abundance of street food is available, offering all types of local and global cuisines
Other stalls offer crafty things or are raising awareness of local charities.
The Photographer had a struggle getting me away from this stall!
This marina was sleepily quiet in the noon-day sun.
The old harbour slipway.
Each Seafront Sunday has a theme and it became quickly clear that this one was in support of our local animal charity, the GSPCA. Needing no further prompt, dogs poured into town with their owners.
The tannoy announced that the next competition was for the Prettiest Bitch.
I didn't score well on "prettiest".
As well as a variety of street food on offer, some restaurants offered al fresco dining.
So which food trough did TP take me to?
A cute little wharf seafoodisterie?
Or the fish and chip van!
Yup, it was the latter. In fairness to TP, I had chosen this eaterie myself. Poor Bertie is not doing too well at the moment and is off his food. I struggle to find foods I know he will eat so I can crush his medication into it. There is one food that I know he absolutely goes crazy for - fish from the chip shop! So I took him home a fish supper. OK, I did help him out a bit ... well, quite a lot actually. But oh what an excuse !
But on a lighter note, we had a wonderful stroll around the seafront, soaking in the sunshine and the atmosphere. I was so pleased to see the event supported by locals and cruise ship visitors alike (there were two cruise ships in that day). Town was a-buzzin'
So thanks for joining me on my visit to Seafront Sunday. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
A la perchoine.
