Jersey Holiday

28 to 31 May 2006

Lucy and her mother spent a long weekend visiting Jersey, as a special present for Kathleen's special birthday.

A well known face at the Jersey Pearl collection, which in addition to pearls included...

...A familiar looking Aston Martin

Steam locomotives and traction engines at the Jersey Steam Museum

St Matthews Glass church

Some pictures of Jersey's beautiful south coast, from a very pleasant cruise trip

Elizabeth Castle

A bear at the Jersey Wildlife zoo, founded by Gerald Durrell - the main reason for visiting the island was because Lucy & Kathleen had both always wanted to visit this zoo.

A poison dart frog - these come in several extremely bright colours

A gorilla staring back at the crowds staring at him

The amphibious Puddleducks travel between the mainland and Elizabeth Castle, which is only accessible by foot at low tide. The vehicles take on their passengers, then back down into the sea...

...and become boats, chugging across the water!

And coming out of the sea again, turning back into a bus.
