St Peter Port

A few pictures taken in St Peter Port, the capital of the island (or, simply, "Town" as it's known by the locals). It was busy, partly because an enormous cruise ship had just disgorged dozens of Americans onto the streets, and partly because it is the Carnival this week.
 

I know this is false-colour infra-red, but the post boxes really are blue.  The telephone kiosks are yellow too, as will be proved later!



 

I was amused to notice that the ferry for Herm (a trip planned for later during our stay) departs from the Cambridge steps.



A couple of pictures to prove that photographers can find decay and detritus wherever they go...


Finally, the evidence that you've all been waiting for (and, NO, it hasn't been Photoshopped).


Told you!
