So Friday on Friday off we walked to the orchid fields three miles away. The walk was on roads all the way. Guernsey roads can be narrow and sunken, even more that the roads in the West country. The flowers on the road sides were glorious. Rosemary spotted a spider’s nest with hundreds of spiderlings about to invade the country.
The orchid fields were found, Early-Purple, Common Spotted & Pyramidal, but there were hundreds of them, all in prime condition. We had arrived at the correct time and we haven’t finished checking the photos yet.
We walked on down the coast to the Imperial Hotel for a pint and then on to Pleinmont where there were paragliders flying. Never seen them there before. Back to the Imperial to catch the bus which took us to Kings Mills, a water treatment and pumping station. Then a short 20-min walk back up to the campsite for drinks
