Late start, caught the bus into town with the intention of catching the ferry to Herm. Alas, the winter timetable had kicked in a day early and the ferry we wanted did not exist. The recommended day to visit is Wednesday, so we will attempt again tomorrow.
The Victoria Tower was open to visitors again, so picked up the key from the Guernsey museum. Climbed the spiral stone steps and wooden stairs to the balcony and looked out over the island. Good views to the north and east.
After returning the key to the museum, we ate our sandwich and smoothie lunch in Candie Gardens, pretending it was warm & sunny.
Took a bus over to the Coach House Galleries where we viewed the paintings and ceramics and bought one piece for a Christmas present. Walked down to the coast road for a bus back to the flat.
Tonight supper in the hotel, and a quiet and most boring set of people I have seen. I saw one and a half bottles of wine served between 4 tables; we had the one bottle. Didn’t start of well when I ordered a dry sherry for Rosemary, and was presented with a Harvey’s Bristol Cream.
The food we were served was all from the Tennerfest menu, but was by no means anywhere as good as the food from the Auberge. All in all was rather a disappointment.
