All the Goodbyes
My very last day in Guernsey. I can’t believe a week flew in so quickly! With my suitcase all packed, I decided to head into town quickly as I had forgotten a few bits and bobs, so I grabbed some quick breakfast, made sure I locked up and headed to get the bus for the last time.
I picked up some last minute souvenirs as well as some lovely flowers for my Auntie Anne to thank both her and my Uncle William for having me for a week, taking care of me and helping me to adventure around the island. My Uncle William then picked me up at the sea front to save me getting the bus back to the house and dropped me off at my Cousin Dan’s who was going to be taking me out for my last few hours on the island before my flight.
The first stop off was Pembroke beach for a nice tasty lunch. This beach was absolutely beautiful, and if you don’t believe me, here is the picture proof! I have never seen a sea that colour before!!
Cousin Dan then drove me around the island and we went to Pleinmont Point which had remnants of the German Bunkers and trenches. Here are some pictures I managed to snap below:
Whilst on the plane to Jersey (a 10 minute flight) I was able to help a business man complete a level on one of his ipad games which was the highlight of the trip back. I rushed through security at birmingham and ran to departures, only to find that just the same as the way over the screen had been displaying Gate open in 5 minutes for Belfast City for the past half an hour!!! Fly Be and all their delays as usual.
We finally boarded, there was what I like to call a demon child on the flight who refused to let go of his mother for take off and had to be bribed but continued to scream the whole plane down all of take off and 10 minutes before take off. I have never been so glad for earphones in my life.
It was nice to land in Belfast, but I miss Guernsey a lot. I was able to relax and find a lot of peace there. I didn’t have to worry about anything, I was eating more, I was outside and breathing a lot of fresh air, and there was hardly any signal meaning social media did not ruin my day.
Thank you to my auntie and uncle for having me for the week, I was so humbled by your kindness and your enthusiasm to take me all around the island. To Cousin Dan, Kelly and the girls, I miss you all a lot and cannot wait to get back to see you all! Hope the girls are practicing their majorettes routines, and I’m sure they will all nearly be taller than me soon with bigger feet.
