Ferry to Guernsey

The last three weeks have been manic, preparing for an RPS Distinctions Advisory Day and then running a week of photographic workshops with Ann Miles in Guernsey.  Ann has been much more organised than me, having already posted lots of Guernsey pictures on her blog.  I'm only just starting to catch up, so here are a few images from our journey across from Poole to St Peter Port on the Condor Ferry, taken on Wednesday 22nd May.

Looking at Herm - a small island off the East coast of Guernsey which we would be visiting the following week.

As always, a large cruise ship was anchored between Herm and St Peter Port, presumably awaiting the hundreds of tourists which it had disgorged earlier in the day.

Coming into the harbour at St Peter Port.

It was such a shock to see the sun after weeks of dull grey weather in the UK, but it was still pretty cold and windy.

After unpacking and eating a wonderful dinner of bouillabaisse (the seafood on Guernsey is to die for) we braced ourselves for the first workshop the following day.
